This is so humorous to read because I know it so very well-first hand. On Tuesday, I finished teaching a class & was so jazzed and tired, I went to a fabric store. Since I hadn't joined this challenge, I couldn't fall off the wagon-right. For 4 years, I've been on a tight fabric budget that is 10% of what I used to spend. And I know better than to go into a fabric store when I'm tired & excited about quilting. My friends joke about "shopping at Laura's" cause they can usually find what they want, & I get to decrease my stash. Last year I discovered my scrap box might have what I needed for the size quilts I'm making now: small-doesn't put much dent in the stash. And same friends put their scraps in my box for the next person. I rarely make any progress on my stash. I do need---STOP RIGHT THERE!!! I'll go search my stash first. Whew, made it through that moment. And I'm staying home tomorrow. But Sunday, Joanne's has flannel on sale, which I don't have, & I need some PJ tops-I've already searched the stores.
