    Congrats on your win. Its okay to hoard fabrics-it is not okay to hoard dust collecting items. And its kinda nice being a nut.So I say enjoy being a nutty hoarder.

    Sounds like you are a quilter to me! I spent $179. at Joann's on Sunday. I went because I had a 60% off one regular priced item and I couldn't resist...I never found a thing that was regular price so I just took advantage of sales! Sigh...I think we are all the same!

    I'm making a deal with myself. If I make a huge crazy quilt with all of my scraps I am allowed to buy whatever I want once it is finished.

    So I immediately donated $50 to the North Branford Cheer Club (DD is a cheerleader), then each family member got $25. And I got a haircut.

    Then I went to Joanna's Saturday.

    I BOUGHT 46 YARDS OF FABRIC. I got 3 yards each of 11 different colors and 13 yards of blizzard fleece to make no sew blankets for the 3 kids and one for myself.

    I thought I was bad wandering around with all these bolts to be cut but apparently one woman came in and bought enough blizzard fleece to fill 12 large bags!!

    And I can't fit any more fabric in my closets.

    I think i am a hoarder!!!!! Or nuts.......
    no i don't think you are, i live north of the border and the prices down your way are so much better i order constantly. just last week i received 4 parcels one with 38 yards of fabric, one with 18 yards, the 3rd with 12 and then the other with 6 pks of 10 fat quarters. my husband just shakes his head. i have tried putting myself on a self imposed moritorium but it didn't last. lol pray for me i am hopeless.

    From one "stash builder" to another - CONGRATULATIONS. Isn't it great when you can win something, share it with others and still have time to shop for fabric? One thing for sure you are not nuts, and I'm envious of all that new fabric.
