March was a really busy month for me - I went to Mexico for a work trip, then came home for a few days and went to Illinois for our bee quilting retreat, then came home for a week and went to Washington, DC with my family for our spring break vacation! It sure seems like the month flew by! It's a good thing that one of those trips was my retreat, because that contributed well to my stash report this month. I owe you a full update on the retreat, which I promise to write soon, and I will share pictures of all my projects when I write up that report. Let's just say for now that it was a very successful retreat with lots of fabric used! I also made a quilt back between trips, so that adds to my usage as well.
I did my first shopping of the year while on retreat, and promptly used most of the fabric in one of the projects I was working on, then did a little more shopping while on our vacation. I visited Capital Quilts, a nice shop near my brother's family. I picked up two new bag patterns (big surprise!), the hardware kit for one of the bags, fabric to make that bag, and a charm pack of some new fabric that I just loved.
Here's the result of all that activity on the stash report:
Fabric added this month: 3 5/8 yards
Fabric used this month: 13 5/8 yards
Fabric added year to date: 3 5/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 22 yards
Net fabric used: 18 3/8 yards
Not a bad stash report for the first quarter - I will be pleased with my end numbers if my usage continues to be the same throughout the year ending around 75 yards used. We shall see :)
