    Or did you draw upon what was already in your stash for your holiday projects in 2010?

    Only bought 3 yards, and didn't even use them. I used the old stuff that I've had in my stash about 10 years.

    I like to add a yard or two from new collections - mostly golds and silvers. Have quite a few blues now too. And anything else which appeals! This year I used some I'd had for 4 or 5 years because I found the "right" project for them.

    I just got back from the LQS and while I bought a bit of fabric I was disappointed it was only 25% off. I was thinking "gee, should have gone to Joanne's or Hancock Fabrics" But I was already there... i only bought a little. 2 yards of one fabric and a panel that I thought was cute.

    What a silly question! OF COURSE, I bought Christmas fabric! But I also used a lot of what I already had. It's a thrill when you can make a whole new quilt (wall hanging, table runner, etc.) w/o even getting in the car!

    I bought just a little, can't pass up the cute new fabrics. They look like they need a home.

    I also did not buy or use any. No holiday-related projects this year!

    I actually behaved myself and didn't buy any new Xmas fabrics at all this year... In fact, I'm not going to go buy any now even though they are all on sale... although I could really go for more light blue with snowflake fabrics... that makes such great sky material for picture wall quilts :)

    I didn't buy any new Christmas fabric until after Christmas when it went sale at 50% off. I do this every year.

    I bought two panels. One was for my tree skirt and the other was a panel for stockings. I used it all up.

    Am hoping to head to my LQS today or tomorrow to see what is left. I got an email saying it was 50% off - so it may be pickedover by now. It really amazed me how little Christmas fabric they had a my local JoAnn's this year. They had less than half the stock they have had in previous years. So no point in going there for a good sale- there was little to choose from even before Christmas!

    I bought some new prints and some solids to go with the prints from other years. I made several tablerunners this year. The Christmas fabric is still sitting there now because I want to work on some holiday projects for 2011. I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted to do because we went to Florida to visit elderly MIL right before Christmas.
