I went to visit my bro.& sis in law this past week. Being I am a newbee here and really learning a lot, I always tell her what I have been doing and have done, even showed her some of my work,
well this time, I wanted to go to mill outlet(Clinton,NC) to just look at fabric}. And also walmart. She went off on me, stating the fact that I was crazy in trying to get more fabric, which she knows I have a stash here at home. she said, use what you have then get more later. (I did find a hotwheels material, at walmart, going to make a lap quilt for a boy).
but what she said kinda bothered me.
Yeah she knows I don't have much money coming in too, and she pounced on that too. Spending on fabric I don't need, she just kept on and on.
So for the question, how do I handle people like this, more negative stuff thrown at me? I really have watched what I do spend. Spent $4.44 for that yard of fabric(hot wheels).
But if I am to be a quilter. what can I do to reply to the negatives of others like this?? I do have some old clothes to tear up, but I still would like to get more fabric, and so on.
Sort of on a downer about this too. maybe I need an uplift this time.
Thanks for listening. and giving me an answer
