Stashing ::Pinks and Blues::

This post is part of an ongoing series of posts where I document my fabric stash purchases.
This year I am trying to keep track of my fabric intake in order to see how much I consume.  I'm not going to keep track of how much I spend, though, because then I might cry. 

For our July meeting of the SLMQG we talked about stash building.  And while I could do a whole post just on the things we discussed, I'll save it for another time. The one thing I would like to share is the "filling in the gaps" portion of the discussion. 

 Can you guess which gaps I needed to fill?


I know, I'm totally surprised myself!  
With both pink and blue I have a nice assortment of lighter fabrics, but am severely lacking in darker/bolder prints.  ...Until now.  Yay, me!

For the record my purple stash is pretty much non-existent.  I blame that on the fact that I haven't met many purples that I like.  My stash might have five purple FQ's in it right now, but I don't see that changing anytime soon.

So now I'm curious, what color(s) is your stash lacking?

Nice additions to your stash! I've just finished participating in 7 months of the stash stack club with Pink Castle Fabrics and that did a lot to built up variety in my stash. However, holes appear in the areas of navy/dark blue, brown, and black.

Oh, I do not have much purple either, and the ones that I do have are only because my SIL gave them to me. I don't know that I've ever intentionally purchased purple. I also do not have a lot of dark blues. However, I have an upcoming project that will require me to purchase some darker blues. And then use them and ship them off. ;)

I absolutely adore purple and have none in my stash, I have plenty of autum colours and have been working on building up my brights as of late, but alas no purples :o(
My next stash project maybe :o)
