after looking at Judy's report i noticed that she reported a figure for the fabric used this year as well as the net fabric used----and i realized that i hadn't been doing that!
so i went back thru all my notes (jumbled as they are) and found out that i'm better off than i thought i was.YEA!!!
fabric in year to date: 42.75 yards
fabric used year to date: 72 yards
net fabric used: 29.25 yards (now that sounds a whole lot better!)
