TMSE (Too Much Stash Enhancement)!

This is my recent stash addition. To my credit, all but two pieces were acquired on the PA trip. You have to buy fabric when you're in south PA - you can't visit Sauder's without substantial acquisition! The top grouping is larger yardage. I've been looking for the Rothermel fabric 4th from the left for the Temecula lightning streak 'T'. Two fabrics to the right of that is a Windham from the sale table - $1.99/yd - you just gotta buy the rest of the bolt for a back! They'll all find a home eventually - that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. The second picture is my 1/3 yd stash - my standard cut for small yardage.
Can't wait for next weekend's sew-in. Hope to get the border on the Colorado quilt, catch up on exchange blocks, and start the 9 patch blocks for the 'Road to Burkholder's'!

Beautiful stash! I love the Rothermel fabric. I pretty much love everything she designs. Sauder's is one of my favorites! I feel so fortunate to live near some of the greatest (and least expensive) quilt shops around!

Those blessed fabric sale prices. They just make stash enhancement too easy, don't they?
You've added some lovely fabrics to your collection.

You and I think alike! This is exactly the type of shopping that I go for! Great buys and beautiful fabrics. Bravo to you!

What restraint. Where I live in NJ is not that far away. So I make sure I stay away. Nice Fabric.

I just got back from PA and my first trip to Sauders. It was wonderful!

I love Sauders :) Where else can you get great fabric, candy and bulk spices all in one place :) A trip to the "ladies room" is an experience :)
