stash report April 25, 2021

I found two pieces of fabric at Goodwill this week. And, they look good together. I am always wondering what goes on in the mind of the person sending their fabric to goodwill. Do they not like it, was it leftover from a project, are they moving, quitting, or just downsizing? I try to keep my expected cost of goodwill fabric to 1.00 per yard. Their fabric prices are getting ridiculous for second hand fabric. I can only buy on Senior discount day. These 2 pieces were closer to 1.50 per yard, but, I liked them enough to make the exception.

3 yards

I had a finish last week here, and, can actually count fabric that is used and gone from my stash. yipee.

Stash report April 25, 2021

Fabric Used this week: 6 1/2 yards  floating stars

Fabric Used year to Date: 59 1/2 yards

Fabric Added this week: 3 yards  
Fabric Added Year to Date: 58 1/3 yards

net fabric: 1 1/4 yards used more than bought

I stitched at least 15 minutes every day this week. One day was mostly cutting and straightening. I am trying to make 2 easy breezy blocks every morning.

Last year at this time I did a review of my stash report    I am curious every April, apparently. I am a little behind this year.

I had used  98 yards of fabric in 2020 by April 26
I had used  100 yards of fabric by April 2019
I had used 100 yards of fabric by April 2018

I am done with one of the pumpkins of my Mr. Scarecrow rug hooking project.  I have one more pumpkin to do, then, I will start at the top again and work my way to the bottom.
I've gone to my rug hooking meeting 2 weeks in a row. It is really hard to restart a group setting after a year at home for the pandemic. But, it has motivated me again to hook.
