Stash Busting 2011 - Week 38

I've been so good lately.  I've hardly bought anything at all this year, and nothing in the past few months.  But then I went into Joann's to pick up something non-fabric related - and it was all over.  I had a 20% off coupon in hand - and it was for the entire purchase including sale items.  So first thing when I walked in, there was some Halloween fabrics, and they already on sale.  With the double savings I couldn't pass it up.  I got a yard of a really cute print that had replicas of vintage Halloween postcards.  Then I grabbed a half yard of the orange and black stripe.  No telling when that would come in handy!  I don't really have any Halloween prints in my stash, so you know, I had to remedy that.  Then after doing the rest of my shopping, I just had to get a yard of a print that I look at every time I go in the store.  It is a really nice wispy floral that just speaks to me for some reason.  I figured if I didn't get it now, it would be gone next time.  So there's my big splurge.  :(

I didn't do much sewing.  I started on a little coin purse that I'll show tomorrow.  I also made a block for my class tomorrow.  I can count those two things out at 1/4 yard total.

Fabric in this week:  2.50 yards
Fabric out this week:  .25 yards

Fabric in this year:  38.75 yards
Fabric out this year:  8.00 yards

I've used black and orange striped fabric for a border on a Halloween quilt before. It adds a lot of pizzaz.
