My poor wallet has taken a little beating lately.
I discovered some of the destashing groups on Facebook.
Dangerous I tell ya, very dangerous places to visit.
I don't consider these stash additions because I have specific plans for them.
After I joined the 1st group, I immediately came across a book I was looking for (more on that later) at a bargain price. Sold I said!
Next I saw these eerie gems. My longtime readers know that Halloween prints are one of my addictions. The purple spiders is a full 2 yard cut and the other 2 are FQ, all mine now for $10.
Then someone had the audacity to list these 3 Kate Spain Daydreams prints for $5 a yard. I quickly said "Yes please" to all.
One more destashing group purchase arrived in the mail the same day as the above 2. This is 2 yards of 108" wide fabric that will be used for charity quilt backings. I'll be able to get 2 backings out of this and it only cost me $16. You can bet that I'll be shopping the destashing sites more in the future for backing fabrics at fantastic prices.
On Saturday morning I made a short trip to a local guild's quilt show. (Pictures of the quilts to come soon). There were a small number of vendors there. At the first booth, my eye quickly saw the Pink Thomas Knauer Pear Tree piece and upon a little more looking, I grabbed up the blue/purple Kate Spain Terrain and the green Honey Honey too. Those are all 1 yard cuts and were a whopping $8 each.
At the other booth that I visited I spotted more Kate Spain for $8 per yard so these pieces from her Sunnyside line became mine plus the 1/2 yard Honey Honey piece above in the lower right corner.
The last booth had even more 1 yard cuts of Kate's fabrics but I resisted, though it was really HARD. So all told I became the new owner to 15 yards of fabric all on the same day. But they aren't stash additions. You will be seeing them used in future projects. Really!
