    I hereby resolve to buy no more fabric for quilting until my stash is down to two plastic tubs. :roll: :thumbup:

    The above is my resolution for 2011! I plan to stick to it. [NOTE: I have over 16 plastic tubs of material and don't seem to be able to put a dent in it.]

    But recession or no, I am going to the fabric store only for supplies (I am down to my last bottle of spray adhesive!) not material.

    Anyone else willing to take the pledge!???

    BTW -- yesterday I was crazy enough to ask my husband (outloud, mind you) :? if we could go to Fabric Depot so that I could fondle some material. The look I got from him was startling! What was I thinking! LOL

    LOL! You already have your own Fabric Depot right there in your house! :D

    I would take the pledge with you, but it would be broken before it was spoken - I just pre-ordered Eleanor Burns' newest line a few days ago and it will be shipped some time in January. :oops:

    The saddest thing about this stash is that I don't even like piecing tops very much! I keep buying tops on eBay so that I can get to the quilting! :(

    thepolyparrot, you're the opposite of me. I love piecing the tops but don't care for the quilting part! I know there's no point in my making this pledge. I would never stick to it. I do resolve to try and only buy fabric when there's good sales! (unless I really need something right then....)

    I cannot make that pledge - I'm a newbie and definitely do not have enough stash to last me all year! lol
