Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I'll be watching for the new thread in 2014. I have really enjoyed reading all the entries. Maybe next year I will be a little better on my purchases, but no promises!
Can't seem to keep to moratorium, but doing much better on the stash busting. Most of the time I have at least some of the fabrics on hand for any project I want to start. Do still usually have to get one or more to coordinate with what I have.
I can't believe I haven't made a fabric purchase in December. Not one. If I keep this up I might actually make a dent in my stash.

I have to confess. I bought fabric in 2013. A lot. This will NOT happen in 2014. I swear it! All quilts will be made from Fabric already in the Fabric Museum!

I haven't purchased anything in Dec but I have some JoAnn's coupons that are begging to be used. Congrats Viv! Stay strong, I will fall from grace for you.
Bluelady, have you ever sought funding for the "Museum"? Maybe I can get mine declared a National Treasure and at least get tax exemption.
I can go you all one further! Not only have i bought fabric in December, i haven't used any! I am a mess right now! I was doing really well till I decided to make a sweater for my dolls. 1 sweater, many dolls, they share. But I SWEAR ( often and loudly, expletive deleted) no fabric for quilting. I am making an apron for my daughter, a smaller scale apron for my almost dgd ( same print, but smaller) and an even smaller scale same print aprons for her dolls, so they can all cook together. Wish i remembered how i posted pics, cause it was so easy, but now it eludes me! Anyone can help me with my ipad? Oh, and about 4 pieces to make a needle case for a Christmas party swap ( and decided to give one I've already made, told you, I'm a mess!)
The only bad days are the ones you don't get.
Nancia: Sounds like you are in a creative frenzy, in a good way. Can't help you with the Ipad, I have a standard old PC. Wish I could see some pictures. Went to JoAnns today and found the perfect fabric for a medallion quilt along being put on my Jabba and Brat on the board. It starts in January, I can hardly wait!
Just bought 3 yds of fabric--2 for 2 more kid capes, but using lining from the stash and then some college logo items to make for the big kids. Sigh..
Don't worry spider.
I keep house
I donate quilts to the AAQI.
ok just figured this out.. this moratorium stuff.. ok its like saying Monday I am going to start a diet. suddenly you justify well its Saturday I can still have. ice cream and French fries and oh that pizza looks good its not Monday yet.. you see here I sit thinking well sure I can do that I truly want to use up a bunch of my staff and finish ufos.. so I think.. better buy it now ....I want more dark blenders like black and dark blues/greens so I can well mix them with the scraps to make things all matchy matchy. I have the whites/creams. Now am I falsely justifying a purchase due to the diet syndrome? argh pirates. but I do think (here I go again roll your eyes) in order to take those fifty different large scraps and make a cohesive quilt or five I need something to pull it all together. and those forty yards of fabric I own and make something out of them.. oh dear I think I failed and I haven't even started!
Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
