This wasn't a particularly prospersous year in my sewing room. Mind you there was a whole lot of sewing, just not as many finishes as usual. Kosmo and Katastrophy arriving in early September had much to do with this as a single project, Kutarug
, which still occupies my sewing room since that same time. Throughout the year there were some finishes and many more starts that will become my next year's goal.

I have been keeping myself accountable for my fabric use and purchase through the year although Patchwork Times dropped the linkups on Sundays. Since the last day of the year falls on the stash report day it will be included here. As you can see I finished the year using 110.5 yards and purchased 64.75 yards. My net used during the year is still on the positive side which is great to see.
Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 110.5 yards
Purchased this week: 7.75 yards
Purchased YTD: 64.75 yards
Net used in 2017: 45.75 yards
The year had me working on several projects new and dusted off. I helped my mom finish off a couple of her very dusty projects as well. I didn't purchase like in years past, using mostly scraps in these projects. I don't understand why there never seems to be more room in my tote bins...

Nothing outstanding in the names assigned to any project except perhaps Kakes in the Kribyard.
I know some will understand how the name came to pass.

were dusted off projects that finished. Both were entered along with a couple others to the San Diego Quilt Show. These two went on to entries at Road to California with Kourageous
being accepted into the show.
My 2017 UFO goals have yet to be met. Kutarug
is still under the needle and Konstitution
along with Kontingency
are in that queue as well. I have set my 2018 UFO goals that you can see HERE
Today has Quiltvillians at Part 7 of On Ringo Lake. With help from blog friends a name has been identified for this teal, melon, brown, and neutral colored project, Kandiyohi
(Kan e ohi).

So I ask like years before, which "K" name is your favorite this past year? My parade of finishes in 2017 for your viewing pleasure.

I close this year with hour glass units being sewn and trimmed. Another wonderful year of sewing. Thanks for helping me discover "K" names for my projects. There will be plenty more opportunities in 2018. Happy New Year!
