Stash Enhancement

This past week I spent some time trying to organize my fabric stash. In the process I also discovered some fabrics I had forgotten about. Some were perfect for upcoming projects. Yeah! 

But, of course none of that stopped me from picking up some great deals to further enhance my stash. JoAnn's emailed me a coupon for 60% off a single cut of fabric. It could not already be on sale. I found a beautiful piece of 108" backing that was not marked as "on sale". When I got to the cutting table I was told it WAS on sale. I complained and they gave me the 60% off. The non-sale price was $14.99 yd. I got 3 yards for a total under $18. How's that for a bargain?
It's the white on ivory print shown below, but the photo is not very good.

Then, I went to The Quilter's Attic in Goodlettsville, TN for their fat quarter sale. If you bought 20 or more fat quarters they were $1.25 per each or batik fat quarters for $2 each. You could mix and match as long as you bought at least 20. No problem with that!

I fell in love with these greens. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them. But, aren't they pretty?
I added some more plaids to my growing collection.
Over the years I have collected 1930's reproductions. I added these 2 this week, bringing the total to about 60 fat quarters and a jelly roll of these fabrics. Today I am going to finally cut into them for the first time.
Just added these because I liked them. 
And, of course, I had to add to my growing collection of batiks.

I love the greens and the deep rich colors of some of your batiks. Gorgeous!
