I'm late, I'm late....Stash Report Week 14

This was one of my finds at one of the 14 shops I visited Friday through Sunday.  What fun!  I spent more than I thought I would but, not enough to make me feel bad.  After all, we were in 14 shops!  Five of us piled in a van Saturday morning and off we went to explore.

Sew, here are the additions to my sewing corner (yes, a corner, no separate room for me).

I was very excited to find the Atkinson zippers at one shop.  Have you priced zippers at Joann's and Hancock's?  These zippers are half the price at $.90 each.  Plus, the extra little goodies like nail files, book marks, a green Sewline chalk marker refill, and a freebie pen from one shop.

Speaking of freebies - one shop gave everyone a square from a panel just for hopping and having our passports stamped.  The theme this year was "Winter Wonderland."  We saw Christmas decorations and received candy canes.

A friend and I decided to take a chance on a Grab Bag.  We got bolt ends of flannel that average 1/4 yd each.  Here's 1.25 yds for my report.  I don't work with flannel too much.  Do you have any suggestions for small projects with flannel?  It's okay to add flannel squares to a scrappy quilt just like quilting cotton, isn't it?

Here's the rest of my fabric purchases.  I only had one fabric cut - the B&W that might be bothering your eyes in this photo.  I love this kind of fabric so I had to get 1/2 yd (that I will probably cut into 2 FQs).  The rest are FQs.  I could buy FQs forever!  Only 10 came home with me and 3 of those were on sale for $1 each. There's another 2.5 yds.

Here are the numbers:

Used this Week:   0
Used year to Date: 28.875 (28 7/8)
Added this Week:  3.75
Added Year to Date: 33.75
Net Used for 2011:   -4.875 (-4 7/8)
