Fabric used in April: 26.5 yards
Fabric acquired, 2015 to date: 22-3/8 for $73.48
Fabric used, 2015 to date: 115-3/8
(Note, too, that I did not acquire any fabric in November or December.)
Thus my stash is 93 yards lighter -- not that anyone would be able to tell since the stash is still in the garage. This week the insurance adjuster came and made her report. We have a $5000 deductible so she paid us $803. Ah, well. The carpenter spent two days hanging doors and door frames. He also installed baseboard. The flooring crew will come this week. The contractor says it will take three to four days.

The quilt in the photo is Lakeside Sunset , my 2015 raffle contribution. Ticket sales were $450, which will go to the Lois List American Fellowship . (I've donated quilts for hmmm, 14 state conventions. I haven't kept exact records, but I estimate raffle proceeds over $5000.)
The convention was very successful. The keynote speaker on Saturday, Prof. Kate Clancy, discussed her research about women in science (that is, some of the reasons more women aren't scientists). For more, here's her blog: Context and Variation I went to breakout sessions about AAUW's newest research report about women in science and about practical leadership for AAUW branches. (I am going to be the branch president for 2015-17.) I've made many friends through AAUW and I fully support the mission -- to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. (How can you oppose such a mission? If you agree, join us!)
And here is the newest flimsy, Red Rails #3. 4-1/4 yards (included in the April total).
Each rail is 1.5x3.5 so each unit is 3.5. I sewed units into twos, then fours, then sixteens (=12" block).
