I love the bright colors in this one, besides the fact it's got big, beautiful, bold butterflies on it. So how could it not come to live here for a while? If I can find a worthy pattern, this is getting converted into a NewFO this month!
Then I made the mistake of clicking on the Connecting Threads email to look at something (thread I think) that was on sale. But across the header was their new fabric line, Hometown Summer.

My final, and biggest mistake was clicking on the Fat Quarter Shop email and following the 24 Hour Flash Sale link. One day last week, they had Michael Miller's Krystal line on sale for half price. My stash is still really week in large cuts of tone on tone to use as backgrounds. At that price it just made sense to order some larger cuts. I ordered a few one and two yard cuts in a few of the really bright colors to use as accents.
I haven't even had a chance to get them out of the box yet.
Though I did mange to spend more time in the sewing room this week than I have in the recent past, no way is completing a couple of blocks going to compete with my recent purchases. So here's the damage.
Used last week: 0.47 yards
Added last week: 75 yards
Used in 2014: 7.74
Added in 2014: 190 yards
Net stashed in 2014: 183.31 yards
I don't mind being positive most of time, but maybe not quite this positive, because now I'm way negative in terms of stash numbers. I'm sure you can find some much better examples of good stash management if you check out all the other links over at Patchwork Times.
