Stash Report - Week 44

Wow, 6 days into November already! I still need to go through and post my quilt show pictures and my project recap from October, but today is for the stash report and it is always nice to have a little good news :)

I prepped a Bali pop for the Jelly Roll challenge quilt that I am going to make tomorrow at our bee workday (we're all doing them!), and while I was working on that, remembered that there was a baby shower at work the next day - yikes! I threw together a quick baby blanket (cotton top/flannel back) and was ready to go in time for the shower -- this is where a stash comes in really handy! 
I didn't get too much done the rest of the week, except for quilting the second Girl Scout quilt for my mom (and third I've quilted overall). I had a little fun on this one and quilted words into the bottom border. It only became hard when I had to dot the "i"! 
My mom and I took a quick trip to Illinois with the kids yesterday to visit Threads of Time, a shop and retreat center. I found a great book there to make clothes for Jenna's dolls, so my pattern purchases took another hit, but I do plan to get back to neutral by year end. 

Fabric added this week: 0 yards
Fabric used this week: 4 3/4 yards

Fabric added year to date: 46 3/4 yards
Fabric used year to date: 100 5/8 yards (woo hoo - past 100 yards!)

Net fabric used: 53 7/8 yards

Net patterns bought/used year to date: -3

Hope you have a great week with your stash!

Great report! Is the jelly roll quilt the one that was done at retreat? If so, good luck!!

How do you keep track of your stats? Do you have a spread sheet in your purse? Do you keep track in your sewing room? I go to Threads of Time a lot so I got your blog off of their newsletter. Bill & Missy are the kindest people. I've bought two machines from them and lots of stuff!
