    I bought only 2 spools of thread @50% off to quilt MIL's quilt and it was in colors I did not have. Now I am getting ready to throw some serious money at quilt rulers for my Sweet 16. I spent some time actually drafting out different ideas for finishing some UFOs. Each design - upon closer inspection - would go so much easier with rulers and I have only 2 so far. Neither will work for these projects. Next Tuesday is our wedding anniversary and DH told me that he wanted to get me rulers as a present but he didn't know which ones. So I get to pick my own. WHOOTWHOOT!

    Today would have been my 22nd anniversary with my ex-husband. Does that mean I get a new ruler?

    Don't know if that counts or not, but it should! My friend since second grade recently celebrated the 37th anniversary of her divorce, so go for it. 😜

    My real down fall.
    I went out of town to older son's for Tday. This was costly trip I can tell you. My younger son drove me there the Sunday before and came and got me the Friday after. I paid the gas of $200. That pickup eats gas. Trip was okay. I had not been shopping for material down ther for at leas 3 years or more. I told my son I had to stop on way back for material. Ends up a friend of DIL there drove us to the next town (where I wanted to buy material) and bought material at both Cubbs. One jus a sewing shop and the other Cubbs=Ben Franklin. If we stop end of Oct and start again Jan 1st I am fine. I knew I would not be down there again for maybe a year as not driving. Material like $10 a yard there. Walmart here is like $10 a yard. I picked stuff I wanted for quilts. Must have gotten 30 yds or so. I had planned to buy a little material but not that much. Younger son asked if I had gotten my material. Yes, he is for me getting material it seems. 3 years ago I bought John Deere panel and a yard of JD equipment to cut for appliques. I made him the quilt and he really likes it. First quilt I made with panel and borders and appliques. It took me time. Was moving. I did pretty good the res of the year not buying material.

    Colorado: Woww! I think one of the penalties for falling off the wagon should be you have to show pictures. Thirty yards, about 3.33 queen size quilts, not counting backing. Most of us on this thread have stashes that rival small fabric stores, how big is yours?
    I am old enough to remember when planning the expenses for a trip did not include gas. It was such a small expense no one ever gave it a second thought. Just last weekend I spent over a hundred dollars on gas so I feel your pain.

    All anniversaries count as far as I'm concerned - particularly the exes.
