    Quitting Smoking, need fabric, couple questions

    I know I can do it, I've done it before - for 11 or 12 years, but the first week after the first I am going to quit smoking. I'm going to wait until I have 4 days in a row off work which I think will be the second week of January. My grandkids lost their other grandma last year to cancer and she never smoked a day in her life so my 7 year old keeps telling me she wants me to quit. What better reason than your little grandbaby asking you to please quit?

    Anyway - I need to start some projects to keep my hands busy - thinking about applique so I can take it wherever I go, but I need fabric. I have some, but not much. Hubby been out of work for 2 years, so not much money flying around. I want to ask where you have found some REALLY GOOD sales this week. My mom sent me a little money for Christmas, and I think that would be the healthiest way to use it.

    Wish me luck!

    Also don't forget Connecting Threads. They have some for as low as $2.48 right now.

    Sending thoughts and prayers for your success in kicking the habit.

    if you really quit smoking, the money will become readily available. That was my mother's driving force for quitting. She could no longer justify the expense. Good luck to you. It will be hard, but it will be worth it.

    Good Luck. I know it is a really hard journey you will be on, but just think of your grandbabies and it will help. You have a good idea to start a quilt and hope it helps you through

    I was looking around on line and Crafttownfabrics.com is having a blow out sale its like 40% off Christmas fabrics. I don't know if that's the kind of fabric you are looking for but just thought I would let you Know.

    Do you have a Good Will by the pound store in your area? I bought 15 yards....YES, 15 yards of 3 different colors of Batik's, 5 yards of a cute print, and 4-5 yards of a coordinating plaid, ALL.......ALL for $13 and change. Good luck to you on quitting
