Sunday Stash - Week 3 of 2011

Oh what a week it's been! Work has been stressful.  I was sick a bit.  Thankfully the weekend has been lovely, so far.  This week has been a fabric week!
Here is a photo of everything I got.  

I went to my in-town local fabric store once I was starting the leg work of the Postage Stamp quilt I'm completing for the p.s. i quilt quilt-along.  I was lacking of good yellows and transitional yellow oranges.  So I purchased a few. Got enough for my stash building too.

I have joined a few on-line bees and am going to attempt to complete a few angel blocks for people who are missing blocks  Being an angel can be hard work.  Especially when I went to my stash and I found that I have NO whites.  I have white backing but nothing white on white.  I had to get some of that and found a few yummy black and whites.

I got a few fat quarters of items just because. . I love them!

*Edit* - Oh there are these yummy ones too. . . I love the one on the bottom here with the diamonds.  So i got a little from the line.  Oh the beautiful things I can make from this line.*End Edit*

 From my non-local fabric store, Stash in Walla Walla I kinda go crazy.  These lovely ladies stock the modern fabrics and I wish that I had a store just like them to work on all the day long.  The following purchases are from them.

I am completing a fabric swap at the beginning of next month.  The chosen color is green.  We will exchange 12" squares.  Mini stash building.  I purchased this lovely green.
 There has been a blog hop that is celebrating the next marketing holiday, Valentines Day.  While I'm not a fan of this I do love the colors and some of the projects.  So I got a little bit of these three colors.  YUM!

I picked a few charm packs from Stash which was reasonable.  But when I went to the newest local fabric store, Finishing Touches Quilt, on Saturday she is still have a sale on the pre-cuts.  Oh how could I walk away from the Central park Jelly Roll.  Rarrrr!  I flipped through the charm pack and am not happy with the animal line. No matter.  I will eventually add the oranges of this line to "my orange" quilt stash. 

Yeah for fabrics!

And today I've even started using some of these. . lots of projects in progress.
