Stash Report - Weeks 35-38 2014

It has been quite a few weeks since I last posted a stash report and I haven't been doing too much, but I have been busy - especially at work and with the kids. In the midst, I have been sneaking in a little quilting time here and there. 
It started with a birthday, and with a birthday comes fat quarters from my bee. I got a nice assortment of black & whites, so I should be able to finish my easy street leftovers quilt . I also got some nice quilty/crafty gifts for my birthday - including having several books spiral bound, a new travel iron, and a cross-stitch kit. 
After all the birthday celebrations, I got going on a few things that used some fabric -- I finished a cross-stitch into a flat fold display, I finished a baby blanket, made a couple laminate bags, started cutting out a new quilt and made a couple test blocks, and started working on one of my row by row shop hop kits.  It didn't result in that much fabric used, but I feel like I've been getting some good things done. 

I did add another yard of fabric which was left over from a quilt back my mom made and matches a FQ pack that I have, so it will give me enough background fabric to make a pattern I bought earlier this year. 

The result of all those changes over the last four weeks is: 

Fabric added last 4 weeks: 2 3/4 yards
Fabric used last 4 weeks: 2 1/2 yards

Fabric added year to date: 39 3/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 49 yards

Net fabric used: 9 5/8 yards

Hey, the black and white fabrics are great. They would fit right in with mine! LOL Sounds like a fun birthday. Looks like some good books. It is always nice when they are spiral bound to be used as ready reference. I used to love it when my Mother and I would share fabric.

Happy belated Birthday. You received some cute gifts. I'd say you have been busy and accomplished quite a bit in the last couple of weeks. You are doing better with your fabric usage than I am. I like your little laminated bags.

Love your new stash and the little bags you made--I've always wanted to try making one myself, but the zippers are scaring me off!
