Stash!!!

I forgot to mention before now, I could not resist buying fabric last weekend. Aren't these fun?


This one you must click to embiggen. Is that not the most beautiful stuff in the world?

Today, I had a rare week day off work so Jessie & I went stash shopping! I had a 25% off total purchase coupon and went a little crazy. I bought floss. Loads of floss. Scads of floss. Heaps of floss. I am in stash heaven. I could wallow in this much floss.

And more fat quarters. The checkout lady was so patient as she scanned in each floss. Then her computer refused to scan any more. I had reached the limit of items you could purchase on one receipt! I suppose the computer has only so much memory. She had to ring up the rest of the floss on another ticket. This purchase gave me one 7-foot-long receipt and a shorter one as well.

What a fun day! Now I shall go wallow in floss until I am batty with stash overload!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Karen said...

OMG...that is a lot of floss...you had better get to stitching!!!! Love the fabric too.

I had a Michael's coupon too and didn't think to buy floss! Oh well...they have another 15% off for this Sunday and it includes sale items. Good time to stock up too.

Chars said...

WOW! Lucky Lady :) I admit to sticky beaking at the prices on your receipt - and I can't believe how cheap your floss is... here its $1.30+ per skein!!

Nick said...

I love your stash! lol I remember going to Hobby Lobby once with a list of 70 some odd different colors of DMC. I did not get such a cool receipt though, just a mini one that said like 76 @ .37 lol

How do you sort your floss? I try to wind them on the little floss tags but sometimes Im too lazy and just sorted the colors by number into zip lock bags, 500s in one bag, 600s in one bag, etc. lol
