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
