February Stash Report and Goals Update

It's the end of the month, time to take a look at how things went in the sewing room this month.

Stash Report:
IN this month: 15 yards (STLMQG free table - 3/4 yard.  CSQ Fabric Swap - 7-1/4 yds.  Ordered for Grandson's big bed quilt - 7 yards.)
OUT this month: 34-1/8 yards (Aztec flimsy - 2-1/2 yds.  CSQ Fabric Swap - 29-3/8 yds (includes quilting cotton and flannel).  Nurses for Newborns top, backing, binding - 2-1/4 yds.)

IN YTD: 19-3/4 yards
OUT YTD: 52-1/4 yards
YTD Net change: 32-1/2 yards OUT.

A very good start to the year. My goal is to break even or reduce stash at the end of the year. I have plenty of wiggle room here to do some stash enhancement in Paducah in April!
