STASHBUSTING - Week Whatever

I'm giggling to myself cause I can never remember what week this is supposed to be for stashbusting - guess it really truly doesn't matter as long as I keep track.

Ya'll would be so proud of me! My LQS was having its annual "Garage Sale" this weekend. The employees gather up all their stuff that they don't want anymore and sell it in the back room of the store - it is ALWAYS a wonderful event!! AND I usually do a pretty good time at buying - remember, these are people who work at the store... so you know the quality is good! And it's not just fabric, but books, magazines, notions, sewing machines,,, anything and everything.. a fun time for all!

Anyway,,, I really thought about taking off work ( a long lunch ) and going Friday, but I said to self, "Self, You know you don't need a thing, not one blessed thing!" and I said to the other self, "Well, I could use some backing fabrics and you know there is always large amounts of fabrics" then I got to thinking about my own personal outlet store down the street, and I was a good girl and stayed at work ( not nearly as much fun! )

Well, Saturday I had to take the dog to the vet and you know the LQS is just down the street ( literally ) so I did stop,, and I looked and I looked and I touched and sighed and touched some more,,, but I was good! I didn't succomb to the Evil Fabric Arm Twister -- Pat me on the back!!








I'm lying,,,











I gave in...





I bought a book and 2-1/4 yards of fabric ( do you see my big grin? ONLY 2-1/4 yards!! I saw this piece and just had to have it... the perfect fabric to make The Amazing Grandson some pillowcases...


and,,, If I had gone on Friday - I might not have seen it! The Evil Fabric Arm Twister got me just a little bit...



2-1/4 yards for $5.00
the smile on The Amazing Grandson's face - priceless!

I wouldn't have been able to NOT do it, either. That fabric is way too nice. I'm just running out of places to hide it from Hunnybunny.
