I must admit this looks bad. But keep a few things in mind:
1) I have a relatively small stash. My goal for the year is to stay plus/minus 25 yards. I am still within that goal.
2) My stash lacks yardage (last time I made a back I used ten different fabrics). This was my primary purchase.
3) I also needed to purchase for a specific class sample I needed to make.
4) I purchased sale and/or the most reasonably priced fabrics I could find.
So, even though it looks like I went on a buying spree, it was a well-considered shopping trip to enhance the stash. I admit, there are a couple of smaller purchases that were not so well thought out, but in general, I think they will enhance, rather than just increase, my stash.
