I did more replenishing today. Only 1 Christmas print but I bought all that was left 9 1/3 Yds.@ .99per yd. I also found some pillow panels that make great tote/gift bags 1 has roses on it & the other is for DGS it has Deigo on it. DD was with me & picked out 2-$2 prints for spring tops & I found some black Gingham for $1yd I couldn't pass up. I actually put 4 pieces back that were in my cart. I think I did pretty good.

Me too. Some flannel that I bought for pj's shrunk so much that I didn't have enough for the sleeves. So I bought enough for sleeves plus the remainder of another bolt - it had hibiscus! I couldn't pass it up. It's 5 3/8 yards so even after washing (& probable shrinkage) there should be plenty for a nightgown next winter. I just booked a cruise for DH & I this morning. We leave 3/2, so once I finish the sweater & pj's, I'm going to have raid my spring/summer stash & get sewing cruisewear. More stash busting.

My DD was laughing today when I told her I had to buy to replenish for the next "Stash Challenge". In all honesty I could have sewed the same amount as our combined yardage and would still have stash left for a couple more challenges!

Sounds reasonable to me.

Having re-vamped our bedroom Tony has discovered how many bags and boxes of fabric I have hidden away - rats - I'll never get him near a fabric shop again...

then again - why do I need to take him - I can go on my own....

I am getting there...

Wow, finally getting a chance to finish reading through the last few pages. Congrats to all the winners! :party2: I'm ready for the next one. My MIL and I had lots of fun at the Joann's post thanksgiving sale........ Shame on us, but it was fun.

Congratulations to the winners this was a lot of fun.

I can't believe I used up almost 30 yards and barely made a dent. On the other hand in my search for backing for a quilt (instead of going out and buying more), I ended up semi-organizing my space....
