Fabric added  year to date  33.75 yards
Net used 2016  75.625 yards

My last two finishes added to my "used" total this week.  

I have a neighbour who is packing up her home, ready for sale, and she gifted me with several bags of batting pieces, and fabric.  Instead of keeping any of it, I found a neighbour who is teaching sewing and quilting at a local Womens' Shelter, so the whole lot is heading her way!
I stitched my final blocks for my guild BOM yesterday, and now all the fabrics are packed into a large tote bag, along with the blocks.  I rolled them onto the tube that holds my slider for machine quilting, so they won't get crushed on the way north.
I'm slowly organizing my fabrics, and deciding which to leave for next winter, and which to return home to work on over the summer.  I keep a list of all the tools and rulers that stay here, and I'll be packing the rest.  
Of course, since we're leaving soon, there are lots of get-togethers with friends and neigbours, and I'm trying to use up the remaining meat and veggies before we head out.  We have several neighbours who live here full time, and they keep a good watch on all the Snowbirds' homes while we are north for the summer.

Check out all the progress shared at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.


  1. Take care on your trip back north.

  2. What a great way to share the fabric with an organization who can use it! You have some great numbers for the year!

  3. I think I'd have a hard time separating my fabric into "down south" and "up north." You may be used to it by now . . . good for you for resisting the urge to add to your stash and instead, give it away right away.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
