Stashbusting #8 - A Confession...

It is a good thing Judy L doesn't give out demerits for failures in Stashbusting...  I seem to be more about the stash and less about the busting these days.week8

I took my sister Darlin' shopping down on Rt. 340 earlier this week... and here is what came home with me.  5.25 yards of...

Florals 002

Florals! 

One shop I went in had 5 FQ's for $5.00 - so I picked out 5 of those.  Then the 1/2 yard cuts were 10% off of the $2.59 they were marked... so 4 yards worth of those came home with me.  I've got plans... really I do!  But I still called these "Bad Girl Florals" in my spreadsheet.  I'm working on a couple things... you can almost smell the smoke I've been thinking so hard. LOL

I was good after that - I only picked up a nickel pack of hill country springModa's 'Hill Country Spring.... ooo ooo pretty stuff.  I just love floral's - especially if they have bluebonnets.

I'm on my way to Texas next week... and since I usually pick up some western prints or bluebonnet / wildflower prints when I go home.... I'll just have to keep my eyes open for these lovely fabrics.

One of the things I hope to get accomplished while I'm visiting in Texas is to get a "Challenge" idea worked out... it's been awhile and I think I'm about ready for one!  I've got it named "Take a Number Please" and it will be geared towards using what you have so I should begin making some progress on this Stashbusting Thing!

Love your florals! I'm a "flower child", too. :-) Hope you have a great time in Texas. If you get anywhere near the East Texas Piney Woods, could you take a really deep breath of that gorgeous air for me? Take care, Dianne B. in England (but dreaming of Nacogdoches)
P.S. Can you still blog on the road? Hope so! :-)
