I started 2007 with 17 quilting projects, I added 36 projects and completed 23 projects for a net list of 30 WIPs for the coming year. I started stitchery this year and currently have 6 WIPs. I also have 5 projects I have the patterns and fabric for, but haven’t started and I just got my Butterfly Garden patterns today so tomorrow I’m going to pull fabrics and floss for it.
Over the course of the year I spent 411.25 hours quilting or stitching, that’s an average of 34.27 hours a month, or 1.13 hours per day.
OK, so I’m a bit of a numbers geek, but hold on there’s more.
I spent $2,318.15 on fabric, supplies and having 3 quilts quilted. That’s an average of $193.18 per month, or $5.64 for every hour I quilted. Not a bad investment in my book.
On to 2008. My goals this year include:
- Spend less money. That shouldn’t be too hard since buying a house will put a dent in my disposable income.
- Improve my appliqué skills. Making Butterfly Garden will help with that.
- Learn how to machine quilt. If I’m ever going to decrease my UFO count I need to learn machine quilting.
