DWM: another idea for the apples, and third quarter review
While the apples continue to ripen I quilted, bound, and labeled Joyful Noise. This will be raffled at the AAUW Waukegan Branch holiday party. I want to sell tickets at the AAUW-IL fall conference at the end of October, hence my desire to get it done now. This is finish #29.
My studio looks much better this week than last. Specifically, the floor looks better. We had the carpets cleaned, upstairs (main floor) and down (studio). I would much rather have vinyl flooring on that basement floor, but the carpet was recently-installed when we bought the house. Now the logistics of moving everything out to rip up the glued-to-concrete Berber are painful just to contemplate. The cleaning is a great improvement.
I'm pleased to report that I did not buy any fabric in September!
My quarterly report: Aug-Sept, fabric in: 71-1/4 yards ($151), fabric used: 56-3/8 yards.
Total for the year: fabric in: 328-7/8 yards ($911 or $2.76/yd), fabric used: 176-1/8 yards.
29 finishes, of which 13 are pre-2013 and 16 were begun in 2013. There are 9 flimsies in the box.
