Nothing in, and nothing out this week. I’ve been working away at the Bright Strings quilt, and the back (all from stash as well) is almost finished, but it’s progressing at a snail’s pace. I’ve had back spasms all week and can’t sit at the machine for very long at a time. Hopefully it will get finished this week.
This week: +0 yards, -0
This year: +0 yards, -10 yards
Net stash used this years: -10 yards
In other news, I have a new ironing board. My tall son leaned on the old one, bending the legs and producing a permanent slant. I don’t know how obvious the problem appears here, but a.) Yuri kept rolling off, and b.) I kept cursing as the fabric and iron slid off.
The new one is Bed Bath and Beyond’s “professional” model. It was too expensive, but I used a coupon. I wanted one quickly, and the main review complaint on the ones from Amazon was that they were arriving damaged, so I went with this. It is 18″ wide, which I like, and it has it’s own electrical cord and outlet for plugging in the iron, so I am no longer fighting the cord as I iron. It has a built in iron rest and cord guide. The padding seems pretty thin and the cover is a rough, cream colored fabric, but I guess I know how to fix those things. Since I haven’t been in the studio much, I haven’t really used it a lot, but so far, so good.
Hope you’re using your stash this year.
