Stitching and Stashing--Week 52, 2020

This is the last regular stash report for 2020, although I might do a final 2020 update next Sunday if there are any changes between now and the 31st. My last little Christmas project used 1/2 yard for these Santa potholders.

My addition for the week was a Christmas gift (my suggestion) of two fat quarter bundles of the fabric line "Pin Drop." The pins measure about 3/4" long. I'm considering this group for a future Rainbow Scrap Challenge project. Here they are still neatly folded before I threw them in the washer.

Used last week:                               .50 yards
Used year to date:                    187.375 yards
Added last week:                              4.5 yards
Added year to date:                        86.0 yards
Net used year to date           101.375 yards

I am thrilled to end the year with a net usage of over 100 yards, by far the highest I've ever had. The main reason that was possible is because I used 37 yards of quilting fabric to make over 300 face masks, and I also gave away several UFO projects and some unloved fabrics. 

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 managed to get at least 15 minutes every day, including some hand stitching time on Christmas Day. The biggest accomplishment was finishing assembly of my RSC Square Dance quilt tops, which you can see in yesterday's post.

15 Minute Challenge:  
12/20 - 12/26              7 of 7 days
2020 Total            352 of 361 days
