Nosy inquiring minds want to know!

When was the last time you:

Changed your rotary blade?
Changed your needle?
Bought fabric?
Bought thread?
Bought a pattern?
Cleaned your machine?
Cleaned your sewing room/area?
Started a project?
Finished a project?

I changed my rotary blade earlier this week - and now I remember how they're actually supposed to work! I just changed my needle because it was yelling "POP" with each stitch.
I bought fabric and thread last month, I can't remember about a pattern - last summer I think.
I clean my machine with each bobbin change, at least sweeping out the dust bunnies.
My sewing room is never clean - I have a 2-year-old quilt "helper" that loves sprinkling fabric and toys around.
Started a project - February 1st - This or That helped me get a jump on a t shirt quilt I'm making.
Finished a project - February 1st - had a little binding left that I couldn't squeak out for a January finish.

When was the last time you:

Changed your rotary blade? I have 2 cutters.  I don't know when the last time I changed one of them, but the other I changed last month.
Changed your needle? Since I just finished quilting a quilt, I will change the needle in my Juki today before starting the next quilt.
Bought fabric? I bought a bolt of wood grain fabric a week and a half ago.
Bought thread? Beginning of January, I think.
Bought a pattern? I haven't purchased quilting patterns ...ever?  But I did buy a knitting pattern last month.
Cleaned your machine? I will be doing that today, I do it between projects.
Cleaned your sewing room/area? Since I'm in the living room I try to keep it organized and pretty clean all the time.
Started a project? Today.
Finished a project? Sunday, Feb 3
