Only a few of these reports left for the year. My goal was to use twice as much fabric as I purchased. I can clearly see I'm not going to make that, but I feel good about where I'm at right now. I did cave and go to a LQS, Quilts Like Crazy, that was having a good sale. Bring in 5 cans of food for the Food Bank and receive 25% off your purchase. I wanted some more of one fabric I had purchased from them before. Fortunately I found the exact fabric I needed, plus a few others for the Winter Wonderland quilt I'm working on. I bought 2.5 yards of assorted wovens/flannels for this quilt.

I've not been sewing much this past week. After finishing the bathroom valances, I've been doing a little bit of hand work. The exception to that are a couple of charity blocks I made for a friend. It's a surprise so I can't share them here, but they used a half yard of fabric.
Purchased-this-week: 2.5 yards
Used-this-week: .5 yards
Purchased-to-date: 253 yards
Used-to-date: 418 yards
Net used: 165 yards
