Heading over to the magazine stand I passed the holiday decor aisles and noticed everything was 30% off so I picked up a tablecloth for the guild's potluck lunch Saturday, a pair of groovy socks for the Queen Mother (MIL), and a few other items. Nothing qualified for the coupon.
Thinking I might find some Peanuts fabric, I perused the racks of fabric. I couldn't pass up this lucious paisley so I bought a little over 4 repeats (1-1/2 yards) to demo the 4-patch posey technique in a class I'm teaching in two weeks. On sale, couldn't use the coupon.

Magazines were excluded from the coupon, so by this time I was determined to find something, anything, I could use my coupon on. And there it was! I settled on 3 yards of this yummy brown with colorful sprinkles for a background .....

Oh, I did finally get the magazine and it only cost me $81!!
Earlier last week I had gone to The Quilter's Path in Mt. Juliet, knowing that Merita would have red grunge. I figured 1/2 yard would be sufficient. Somehow that half yard morfed into 5-1/2 yards.
In addition to the red I got a yard of the brown Grunge, a yard of pretty blue with an Asian look, two yards of an interesting tan to go with my taupey-tan collection, and a solid lavender. Except for the blue, I have a plan for all of these.
Bottom line: the stash took a hit last week.
Stash report this week:
In this Week: 10.0 yards
Out this Week: 0 yards
In year to Date: 177.75 yards
Out Year-to-Date: 136.5 yards
Net Used 2014 -41.25 yards
It could be worse, I suppose. I have several projects nearing completion and with the S'mores retreat later this month I should be able to move the net used closer to zero.
We are having such pleasant weather here in Middle Tennessee. Wish I could bottle it and send you some.
