Serious fabric shopping

Beneath you can find an update of my stash. I thought that my stash was very small. Especially comparing with some other bloggers ;). So yesterday I made a shopping trip to my favourite fabric store 'Maison Dorée'. I knew what I wanted, thank god, or I would have spent hundreds of Euros. I did some damage control and managed to leave the shop with 100 Euro less in my pockets.
I bought two fabrics, one red cotton sateen and one sapphire blue jersey to make myself some blouses. It will be the first time that I will work with jersey. I also bought lining to make a dress out of my beautiful birdy silk chiffon. I bought hair canvas (much more expensive then I thought) and some interfacing to reinforce the plaid jacket I'll be making very soon. Finally I bought a burda pattern, some hand-sewing needles, a twin needle, two shades of yarn, buttons and an invisible zipper.

The other fabrics in the picture are part of my stash. some I bought earlier, the lovely striped fabric in the middle my grandmother gave to me.
The plaid fabric and red lining I also bought at Maison Dorée.

I realise just now that my stash is very colourful :D
