Stash Report - Weeks 5-9, 2015

I keep meaning to post a stash report on Sunday  morning, but then the day gets busy and by the end of the day, I think I will just add it into the next week. My primary machine has been in the shop since early in February and I have been stitching away on the couch much of the month, so just a little sewing has been going on.  I have also started doing a little prep work for the retreat that I will go to in mid-March with my bee. 

The summary of my additions/usage are: 
- Cut out and finished some coffee cup holders from a kit I bought long, long ago. 

Coffee cup holders - another kit done! 
- Added and then immediately used a fat quarter for an embroidery project that I've started. 
Beginning of the Alphabet Sampler
- Handed out a fat quarter for a bee birthday gift. 
- Started cutting out a winter quilt kit to work on at retreat. 
- Finished one of my cross stitch projects into a cube, using a little fabric along the way.

- Cut out a vinyl bag that I have ready to go to my retreat. 

The result of those activities is: 
Fabric added last 4 weeks: 1/4 yard
Fabric used last 4 weeks: 2 5/8 yards

Fabric added year to date: 1/4 yard
Fabric used year to date: 7 3/4 yards

I am a couple yards ahead of where I was at the same time last year, and I have plans to keep cutting for retreat prep, so hope to make some more progress before I spend a long weekend at a quilt shop where temptation is far too close! 

Hope you've been having fun with your stash and making progress on projects that you're enjoying!
