Stash Report - Weeks 47-50, 2013

The stash has been slowly moving along over the last few weeks. I've quilted a few things, made a couple bags, and pulled fabric to make some new stuff.  Despite a little bit of progress, I don't have much stash to count as used. 

I did make these cute laminate fabric bags for teacher/friend gifts, but realized that I didn't count the laminate fabric when it came in, so can't count it going out. Even so, I am glad to have these done a full week before school is out.  I still haven't figured out what to make for Jenna's male teacher - I got my hobbies mixed up - he isn't into photography, but videography/stop motion videos....so the camera strap, while an excellent idea, isn't the right fit for him.  I may make him some kind of thing to go on his desk to hold pencils/notepads, etc.  Or, I may just buy a gift card :)

I have also gotten some good quilting done and this is where the little bit of stash that's been used has come from. Two backs and a little bit from the stash for one of the tops. I will show pictures of these after they've been gifted, but here's a sneak peek at the back of one of the two table runners/toppers I quilted last night (thanks to an afternoon snooze and caffeine with dinner!). 
Christmas quilting
So, here's the tally of my usage over the last four weeks:
Fabric added: 0 yards
Fabric used: 2 yards

Fabric added year to date: 22 7/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 73 yards

Net fabric used: 50 1/8 yards (nice to be back over the 50 yard mark - let's hope I can finish the year there!)

Hope you're having a great time with your stash whether it be fabric, paper, yarn, or christmas decorations!

How is it working with the laminate? Haven't tried that yet.
