It's the end of the second month of the year. Wow! Back on the January 1 I created an Excel workbook with three worksheets. One for tracking my projects, one for tracking time spent quilting (not counting reading quilt blogs or quilt magazines) and one for recording quilt expenses.
I didn't report my January totals because I wanted to make sure I could keep track of everything for more than one month. Well I've made it through two months so I'll report my totals. In January I spent $64.46 and in February I spent $142.99. Not bad in my book.
As far as time spent quilting in January I played and quilted for 26 hours. In February I enjoyed fabric and threads for 32 hours. That may not seem like a lot of time to some people, but for me it's quite a bit.
My favorite quilting tool is moleskin. I use it to mark the quarter inch line down the front of my sewing machine bed. I learned this tip in my first on-line quilt class. I used it for a while. Then I thought I was good enough at sewing that I didn't need it anymore. But I was wrong. So the moleskin now lives on the bed of me sewing machine. My quarter inch seams are much better now.
My sports depression period is over for this year. The Red Sox are playing the Twins in the first Spring Training game of the baseball season. The game is tied 4-4 in the bottom of the 9th inning and I'm too tired to stay awake.
