Stash Report - Week 5, 2015

It's the first stash report of February but the fifth of 2015.  Time is once again flying by. 

The fabric out that I reported last week with having turned Grand Illusion into a flimsy, was swallowed up this week with new purchases at the LQS here in my dad's town.  I went there in search of more of the yellow constant as I really had my heart set on using it also for the binding, and I knew I had an insufficient amount left over at home for that purpose.  I found that they still had quite a bit of it on the bolt, so bought a full yard.
The yellow constant for the binding.
While there, I thought, well, why not look for backing fabric, so downstairs where they keep their discounted fabric, I found this and bought five yards.  That's probably a couple yards shy of what may be required, but I can fill in with plenty of leftover pieces from what was used in the top.

And while I was already downstairs rummaging through the discounted bolts, I found this very nice looking neutral/green paisley.  There was less than three yards left on the bolt, so I bought it all. 
Lovely, fairly large design, green paisley.
How's that for trying really hard not to increase my stash?  Well, I already know that's not working too well, and this coming weekend a group of five of us will be piling into a vehicle to do the southern portion (from Newport south) of the Coastal Quilt Run...hmmm, how much MORE fabric will I be reporting in a week?
