I am definitely not in the habit of stashing solids, so I forced myself to stock up on some. I looked at fabrics I already had in my stash and checked out Pink Chalk Studio's "What Goes with What" to find some coordinating solids since I've realized it's a pain to buy solids on when I need them, then have to wait for the mailman ;)
I already had purchased some solids to go along with my Dogwood Petals quilt, but I wanted to round out the stash, and also get a few of the new Kona Colors -- Kona Kale is definitely my new favorite :)
I also allowed myself to order one half yard bundle from Etsy. I could have definitely purchase several, but I had willpower this time and limited it to one.
Last but not least, I waited in the hellishly long line at Joann's at 7:30am on Black Friday. I took a number when I got there, chose my fabric at a very leisurely pace, and still ended up waiting about 45 minutes get my fabric cut. I really didn't have anything going on though, so it was totally worth it.

I snagged up a bunch of stash builders at 40% off, plus the 25% off coupon. I also got 7 yards of printed flannel that I hope to put to good use after the holidays.
I think I'm done buying fabric for the rest of the year. I'm debating whether I have the willpower to go on a fabric fast in 2014... not sure I do, but I'm sure going to try. Did you snag up any hard-to-resist deals?
