    Recently I got some med. gold/tan for a cat panel I am doing. I was so very lucky to get it 40% off. Sis and I went out and stopped at the same store last week. I thought I would get the purple hand quilting thread for Sis's quilt. Well, it was on sale again...30% off. I got three spools of different colors for future projects. Now that I have these, I am so tempted to go out and get other colors that I don't even need. Someone hold me back....

    "Someone hold me back...."

    :lol: Why hold you back. If I have the money, I would definitely be doing the same thing. I know I will use it up in the next year or two.

    That put a smile on my face. I can picture me having mine supervised. Hey, wait a minute. Maybe I could have my quilting sister supervise me. What a great "out" that is.

    I tried having my DD go with me. They don't sew. It backfired. They picked out fabric for their "next" quilts. They bought their own fabric and encouraged me to get more too. DGD pointed out the floral fabrics because she knows I love it. I spent more than if I went along. Sigh.
