Design Wall Monday and Stash report

Once again it's Monday, that day when I take a picture of what's on my design wall and report any stash usage for the week.  The fun reports are over at Judy L's blog.
It's still Jack's Chain.  I met my goal for April of piecing half the units and decided to keep plugging on.  So this is representative of what I've done since last Monday; not a whole lot, but I keep piecing more small units when I get a chance.  It's going to be fun to see this come together.  I need to spend an evening cutting the white hexagons and then I can go to town.

Stash report

I now have May's UFO project, my Framed In quilt top, mounted on the Megaquilter frame and I've started quilting it.  It occurred to me that I had finished the top last year, before I started tracking fabric usage, but it's been sitting in my stash area taking up space while waiting to be quilted, so I might as well count 4 yards for that top now that it's moved onto the frame.  And another 5 yards for the vintage/ thrift store sheet I am using to back it.  There! I have yardage used!  And about time, too!

Fabric used this week: 9 yards
Fabric used year to date: 40.8 yards
Added this week: 0 yards

Added year to date: 27.2 yards
Net used for 2012: 13.6 yards

Yarn used this week: 0 yards (still plugging away on 2 shawls at once)

Yarn used year to date: 1956 yards
Yarn added this week: 0 yards
Yarn added year to date: 492 yards (all handspun, not purchased)
Net used for 2012: 1464 yards
