May Stash Report and Goals Update

OK, technically we have a couple more days in May, but with no finishes or purchases planned, I can go ahead and post my monthly update today.

Stash Report:
May IN: 2 yards (Aussie print)
May OUT: 2-5/8 yards (2 for backing & 3/8 for binding for F9P; 1/4 yd for doll dress)
Month change: 5/8 yards out

YTD IN: 56-1/8 yards
YTD OUT: 52-7/8
YTD Net change: 3-1/4 yards added to stash

Not too bad; I can certainly recover to break even for the year if I have some finishes as planned.
