Dec saw a lot of away from home time, so things didn’t get done. But that’s OK, I have a new year to finish those unfinished things. And lots of things got added, so Squirrels were very much in attendance this month, LOL! So the average was 70% completion, I’ll live with it.

  1. so when you use your gift cards do you add that in your total spent for the year? do you just track your fabric as it comes in the house – not all that your presently have if you start this new- just wondering I don’t know if I will join in or not – interesting to keep track of what you have and what you use – but how in the world would one keep track of how many scraps you use?

    1. All my yarn was inventoried, so I know exactly how much I have there. For fabric I did not do an initial inventory, I just counted what was added. As I use it I calculate the amount of fabric cut by measuring the sides. Example, a 10”x24” piece is counted as 240 square inches. Knowing that a yard of fabric is about 36”x42” on average, that equals 1512 square inches. So I divide 240 by 1512 and get .16, which is the percentage of a yard that piece equals. I list that in my used column and calculate it for week, month, year. Of course, a yard is counted as a yard, 1/2 yard, 1/4 yard, etc, those are easy to track. I am OCD about things, so this works for me. If you don’t want to be this precise, just estimate how much scraps are used in your sewing. > >

  2. Thanks for sharing your fabric calculation, I wasn’t sure how to record things like my 10″ square pre-cuts, this percentage for square inches will work for me!!! I do love following your blog and your lists. Well done!!!

  3. Hi Chris! Iron skillet handle pad??!! I need me one of those, STAT. I was just using mine last night and I drape the pot holder over the handle so that I don’t forget to use it. Do I have to say how I know that I HAVE to use it?!! Great job on no ins and I have some gift cards that are raring to be used, too. Happy Happy New Year my friend. ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. Congrats on the 95% success rate in finding time to stitch. That’s really impressive. Have a very happy new year. Thank you for linking up with the 15 minutes to stitch in 2019. Hope to see you back in 2020.
