Stashbuster Winnings

Yesterday I was informed I won the no buy challenge on the Stashbuster yahoo group! There's been too many posts on the group and I was planning on reading digests later this week. Imagine my surprise- I was careful with my purchases that I needed and then with all the legal buys.










Oh my goodness- look at all that! I want to make a jacket out of some of them. I need to start sorting by color and see what we have. But wow! That's alot of fabric.



Nancy dressed up the box so cutely- thanks for the extra effort.





Another side :)



Yesterday I was invited to go to a wholesale warehouse to do some shopping. I managed to get a couple bolts of fabric- one for backings and one of a creamy/beige marble for making the embroidered state blocks into a quilt. So that one was a background color. I'm trying to get away from wows and cows all the time. I also managed to buy a bolt of fusible fleece to make totes and purses with. But there was no Moda - that could have been dangerous. And they had hoffman batiks but you have to buy anywhere from 12-18 yards of the fabric,depending on how it was cut. That's alot of fabric to have to use over and over again.

Congrats! I can't think of a more deserving person. You know how sometimes folks get something and never use it? Well, I know you will put all that fabric to good use. Enjoy!

What a sweet box of fabric. Good for you that you kept your cool at the bolt fabric place.

Looks like s 'smorgasbord' of fun. Do you remember that commercial with the little boy and 'borgasmord'? I don't remember what it was for, but it always sticks in my mind.
