Just because it's on clearance,

doesn't mean you have to buy it. I was not going to buy any new stash this year and I've already fallen off the wagon pretty badly and it's barely the middle of February!
This is my loot from ABC Stitch Therapy's clearance sale. The lure of a bargain got a hold of me and sucked me in and this is the result. Here's what I got: The top photo shows three Erica Michaels Random Thoughts charts - Spring, Autumn and Winter. I actually bought two of the autumn in my enthusiasm so I will be adding this to a giveaway.

The photo below shows Homespun Elegance Vintage Inspired Sewing Stands I, La-d-da Love Thy Neighbor, Stacy Nash Primitives Winter Woolens Cupboard Sampler and Brittercup Designs Spring is in the Air - I absolutely love the little robins in this chart.

And the final photo shows three HIH Medley charts - Winter, Spring and Valentine Medley. I already had the Winter medley so that will be part of a give away as well. The final two charts are Waxing Moon Designs Autumn Minis which I thought would be good for exchange stitching and another Homespun Elegance, Autumn Button Sampler. All of this was under $50 so I don't feel I did that bad. Can you tell I'm trying to talk myself out of the guilts? LOL

You got some great stash there! I've been keeping an eye on the sale, but fortunately haven't found anything that I "must have" LOL.

I think clearance sales don't count, lol. Your new stash looks sooooo good and I an understand why you had to have it. Particularly the three HIH Medley charts. I think I have two of them and they are so lovely.
Love all your WIPs that you showed in your last post.

This is why I have avoided the clearance sales, the Super Bowl sales, the New Year's Day Sales and now the Valentine's Day sales at the online needleworks shops, the local craft shops, etc ... I am dangerously close to going S.A.B.L.E. Since I am still sorting through all my mother's stash and setting up numerous giveaways of her stuff, I know that this compulsion must be controlled ... I WILL NOT DO THIS TO MY DAUGHTER!!!!

Well, even if you weren't going to have any new stash purchases, at least you got those on sale and that makes it okay! You picked up some great stash!

Oh those clearance sales are just SO dangerous!!! I'd say, good for you that you limited yourself to this!

I agree with Brigitte..clearances don't count!!!

I've managed to stay away from all the superbowl sales so far and am trying hard not to look, but I have a feeling I'm going to be in trouble when market happens and all those new designs are released. It looks like you have lots of good designs to work with!
