Stash Report 5/12/13

First  - Happy Mother's Day to all mothers! May many blessings be given you for your loving and continued care.  And a special hug for mine!

Secondly - there's a giveaway on my Friday post in case you're interested. Check it out for some hexie fun.

And now to my stash. I did sew most days, but mostly with fabric I'd already accounted for or not from my stash.  So I went stash diving and found 2.63 yards for a tablecloth (just have to hem it on four sides and it's done). Then I got rid of two florals that weren't saying anything to me (.25 yards). I did use about a fat eighth on all my applique blocks. And then I went through a big bag from a closet drawer.  Turned out it was a scrap bag of all sorts of sizes and fabrics (not my cup of scrap) from my old (as in time not age) neighbor - she's no longer with us.  I did pull a few that called to me. I found a hug wad of black - must be six yards.  I'm keeping that.  So I'm giving to the guild 10.24 yards out of that bag. Wow.  So here are my numbers:
in 3.5 yds.; out  13.25 yds.
Stash YTD: in 6.5 yds., out 51.47 yds.
Donated YTD: 26.58 yds
Net for 2013: out 44.97 yds
 
So some progress there! - even if it was mainly by donation.  There actually is now a hole in that drawer that can take another bag off my sewing room floor.  How did you do? I'm linking with Judy at Patchwork Times to see how others did on their de-stashing.
