Stitching and DeStashing--Week 12, 2020

My big plans to be super-productive during the time at home lately haven't gone as expected so far, but I am making a little progress. I spent a few days going through my UFOs and project leftovers, which lead to three offerings posted for the Spring 2020 Orphan Adoption Event at Quilting is more fun than Housework. You can check out the three blog posts sharing my "orphans" HERE, HERE and HERE.

There will be big changes to the stash report once the orphans are shipped away. One of them is a box of 2" strips that weighs 5 pounds. A conservative estimate of the yardage is 3 yards per pound, although I've seen some people go as high as 4 yards. Shipping out that 5 pounds of fabric will mean a 15-20 yard reduction to my stash!

The only change to my stash report for the past week was the first addition for the year. I won this beautiful jelly roll from Bea at She had giveaways for several prizes as part of her "Dust Off an Old Book" blog hop, and I was one of the lucky winners. Thanks, Bea!

Used last week:                              0.0 yards
Used year to date:                        10.0 yards
Added last week:                          2.75 yards
Added year to date:                      2.75 yards

Kate's 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge at Life in Pieces has us tracking how many days each week we get in at least 15 minutes of quilting time. I have been spending many hours every day in my quilting room. I am so grateful that I have this wonderful creative outlet to help me stay grounded and calm.

15 Minute Challenge:  
3/15 - 3/21                 7 of 7 days
2020 Total               78 of 81 days

  1. That's a beautiful jelly roll to win - well done you :)

  2. Oh, what a pretty jelly roll! Hope you’ve found plenty of sewing time this week! I am hoping to find a fair amount today.

  3. Hopefully you had good luck with the orphan project adoption and will see a good jump on the stash report. It is good to have something to keep us engaged. Sorry there was no post last week, thank you for posting anyway.
