    I knew better than to sign up to using just stash! However, I am not buying like I was. I have so much and I am determined to finish my projects I have started and the ones I have planned before I really go out and go crazy again. I have only purchased what I needed to finish a baby quilt for my friends new soon to be grandson and a small piece of fabric for the cats on "Nighttime Cats" I am doing for my granddaughter. I do know about a sale that is coming sometime soon ... fabric from a closed fabric store and I will be buying there. I am waiting for the e-mail to let me know the sale is on!

    I was just looking over my stash and , whew, do I have a lot. I am going to try and NOT buy any fabric for this whole year. Do you think I can make it. I just ordered the new Singer 160th anniversary machine so that is where my fabric money has gone. I may have to fudge on that a little as I am going to make approx twin size quilts for my 5 grandchildren for Christmas next year and I may need to add to fabric I already have but other than that, I am pretty committed to sticking to this resolution.

    Fell off the wagon yesterday BIG time. BUT it really wasn't my fault. My DD made me do it. It's all her fault I was so weak.

    I've been doing good on my diet, too, but only by staying out of the local LQS's. I cannot be trusted!

    I have done pretty good. I bought backing I needed for 2 quilts that were UFO's and I finished 1 table topper from a kit I had. I haven't bought just because I liked it.l

    I'm doing ok haven't strayed off the straight and narrow...but why do I see so many more cute fabrics I would like to have than before this fabric diet.
    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    Our closest Walmart is 50 miles and since Unemployment ran out I can not use the credit cards so I will not be buying I guess!

    I also just found out that I'm going to be Grandma for the 2nd time in 13 years...so this really is a trial!
