    this would explain why I have so much "stuff" I buy things to use in my sewing~ some that is suppose to help me improve~and then I set it aside to wait until the "time" is right...whatever that means! I bought some of that gripper for the rulers...then have continued to struggle with the slip. Last night I finally grabbed it and put it on one of the Lazy Girl rulers I was using. Worked like a charm! I wonder how much better of a quilter and sewer I'd be if I actually USED all this stuff I've had my hub shell out his hard earned money for?? With that being said..I came to a decision to actually use every single thing...this next year I will buy less and use more of what I have...gadgets rulers fabrics etc.....No wonder he looks at me funny when I say I HAVE to have something. =)

    Another way to look at it................My hubby is so happy when I wear something out! He is so proud when I just use it to death!

    When I first started quilting I was that way. I never was too sure where the line between want/need fell. Now I'm a little more discerning when I buy. I don't do a lot of impulse buying like I used to. Apparently a lot of "needs" were actually "wants" because I have a lot of stuff I don't use much. But I like having them "just in case". (O:

    When I first started quilting I thought I needed everything..... Then I realized I didn't need half of it.
    Now I just use what I have and live with it. :P

    I still find things I just HAVE to have, of course now we don't have the money to buy everything I just HAVE to have. So it's now, is it more important than those new trifocals the doctor says you need? Or more important than the brand name prescription the doctor wants you to start taking........etc., etc., etc. Sure helps keep it in perspective!!!!!
