It was a pretty good week for sewing. I finished the Brown Bag quilt top and also pieced the back for it. So some significant yardage out this week.
Used this week: 4.69 yards
Added this week: 0 yards
Used year to date: 16.69 yards
Added year to date: 7 yards
Net used for 2011: 9.69 yards
Fabric Budget: 13 yards for April to June
Bought/Budget: 0/13 yards
Warning: It gets pretty geeky past this point.
Last year my reports were all about how much I bought. Those were some eye opening reports. I bought a lot of fabric, but didn't use much in comparison. This year the goal is to manage the stash. With an ultimate objective of using more of my stash. Since last week was the end of third quarter, I wanted to assess my progress. I'm a visual person, so graphs are the best way for me to compare this year to last.
It's hard to believe I bought over 100 yards of fabric the first 3 months of last year. What I've bought so for this year is much more in line with how much I'm using. I'm a little behind last year in fabric usage, but I'll catch up this month.
That's it for me this week. Check out Patchwork Times for more stash reports.
