Stash Update 2013 - Week 4

Not a lot of quilting per se to report for the week.  My focus has been on embroidery and getting the next baby quilt materials ready to hand off to DSis.  

I am counting the fabric that I pressed and cut to give to her.  I am sending her five full feedsacks to use for the backing and one full sack to use for sashing.  I cut 4" strips from a dozen or so others (two 4" strips of a few)  Also, I had some miscellaneous small pieces of feedsacks that I included along with some reproduction fat quarters.  

I came up with a total by weighing the fabric on my kitchen scale and comparing the total to the weight of one sack which is about a yard and a quarter.  I figured the feedsacks separately from the other fabric, since it is a bit heavier.  

Even though it is not a 'finish', I am counting it because it is no longer in my stash available to use.  I am not counting the fabric that I am using for the embroidered blocks until I have finished them.  

Fabric added this week :0 yds
Fabric added YTD: 6.5 yds
Fabric used this week: 8.25 yds
Fabric used YTD:  13.41 yds
Net stash change YTD: -6.91 yds

I did baste a sandwich today, so I hope to have a finish next week!

I am linking up at Patchwork Times here! Nothing like a deadline to keep me motivated!
