    Ok as of this month I am totally on a spending FREEZE as far as fabric goes - I have made a committment to myself that I will only buy something if I need it to finish a quilt ---- until my stash is reduced by 1/2 or until the summer 30% off coupon comes out from fabric.com ;-) ..... yet I spend at least 10 minutes a day here looking at the fabric for sale .. why do I do this to myself??

    What's your fabric obsession confession?

    I love to buy fat quarters, whether I need them or not. I think they are so fun! I cannot walk out of JoAnn's without at least a couple.

    Same here! Promised myself 'no spending unless I really need it'. Well, just to be safe, I spent another $100.00 on fabric I just know I'll use in something!

    Oh...... Ummmm...... My LQS has a sale starting tomorrow for 3 days, 33% off everything in the store, well at least 33% off on fabrics but everything is on sale. I plan on buying several cans of 505 spray, some thread and of course I may just have to buy some fabrics. It's on sale for heaven's sake!!!

    Baron's fabrics, right here in Camarillo. Less than a mile from my house and right next to Trader Joes. Of course everytime I go into Trader's I must go to Baron's
