I've kept up doing the stash report that Judy has hosted for the third year, and my numbers are awful. As bad as they are, though, the purchases have been more thoughtful since I've been keeping track, and not buying willy-nilly any more. That said, 142 yards were purchased this week of Wiscasset, Rouenneries and Celebration. Haven't received the last two boxes yet, but I expect those in on Monday so they're reported this week.
There are a couple of lines I have my eye on for next year, but I'm going to limit myself to one or two from each market - plus anything by Minick & Simpson as long as they keep doing the patriotic colors I adore.
While organizing fabric the past couple of weeks, a few conclusions were reached about what I have. I've decided that I've fallen out of love with the fabric by one designer so I won't be purchasing any in the future. I found that I have a very healthy stash of batiks which I rarely use any more. The Civil War stash is also healthy. No more polka dots until I use some of these up. I guess I'm heading back to my roots. I did make an exception to my hard and fast $10/yard rule to get some of Brenda Riddle's Celebration by Lecien which I linked above. A momentary dispensation.
At least *someone* I know bought more than I did this week. We'll hold hands and bust yardage together next year!
