This was a big fabric acquisition week for me. Local fabric shops had sales.
In this week: 9 yards.
Out this week: nothing I can count, although I did a lot of sewing and made a lot of blocks.
One local shop had FQs for $1.00 so I stocked up on some low volume prints.

And some stash basics.

And some more friends to go with my Gramercy sampler.

Another shop also had a sale, so I stocked up on some more stash basics and a boyish forest print to use for a couple of pillow cases. (I forgot to photograph the forest print and I've already packed it with the other pillow case fabrics I'm taking to retreat in February.) These averaged $2.50 per yard and I got 1/2 yard cuts except for the pink, which was end-of-bolt so there's a bit over a yard there.
More Stash Basics
I also needed more of a particular background print for my Gramercy & Friends sampler, so I went to a 3rd shop and bought another half yard of it, at full LQS price.
But I guess when you average everything out, I still got good value for my spending this week, just under $40. It all averages out to $4.39 a yard including the tax. At that price, it's better to stock up and take a hit in the stash report numbers, right?
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times; see how others are doing better than I am at keeping their stash growth under control.
