    I passed through both my LQSs today. At the first one, I bought the half yard of Moda Marbles Swirls I need for sashing on a wallhanging. Sadly, full price. At the second one, I bought just enough of a bright clearance fabric for the back of my baby quilt. At $4 and $5 a yard, the others were tempting, but I did well buying what I went in for.

    Now, that's an idea! I need to unsubscribe to all the on-line shops that tempt me with sales!! I have somewhat managed to stay away from JoAnns for the past couple months (at least, not buying fabric), but Annie's, Hancocks, and Connecting Threads are a problem!!!!! I wonder if I can hit that "unsubscribe" button!!

    LadyDelux;
    What a great stash! Can you come help me organize mine, I am sure it would look like that if it wasn't falling apart in the sewing room.

Just this morning, I pulled out all my batting and Pellon fusibles, including all the scraps of batting that I save for small stitcheries and wall hangings. I have had it stored in 2 different places, but now, it's covering my dining room table for organizing and perhaps eliminating (gasp!) some.

    I'm in

    I have enough fabrics with pattern (kits) stored and will be pulling them out and listing them in my project notebook These are projects not yet started.

    I'm in

    I have on and near my sewing machine tables - 4 different project in various stages.

    I don't have to reorganize my fabrics - most of them are already in marked see thru small plastic boxes by yardage.

    Thank you, Paperprincess for posting this !!

    I'M IN !! Jennie
    OH - I'm from Michigan - Rochester Hills - north of Detroit - where do you live? This yankee is stuck in Florida :/ I know, I know - who wouldn't like Florida? This yankee misses the change of seasons !!
    This yankee headed south about 24 years ago, and never looked back!! I love Florida!! We have seasons here too....summer, love bug season, summer, pre-season baseball season, summer, and so on....I will be happy if I never see snow again!!

    Well, Here is another Michigander who not only needs to use her stash, but loves to rediscover the abundance of fabric already under her roof. I am working on a Farmer's Wife quilt with my guild and went wandering through my stash about six weeks ago and I know that I have plenty of fabric to complete the project. So, henceforth this year of 2013 I shall search the depths of my stash and keep the 50 and 60% off coupons for batting and thread!

    Thanks for the thread and sew on quilting friends!

    Well, this is an easy one for me. I lost everything in Hurricane Sandy (including the house). I tried pulling some out of the muck to wash, but it just didn't work ... BUT ... my friends on QB and the Quiltsy Group at Etsy have been so kind and generous that my little apartment is bursting at the seams.

I am REALLY going to try and have marked the calendar with the date I last bought fabric (does the date I ordered on line count or the date I received it??) so I can see how long I last. I am on such a tight budget, I really can't afford more until I sell more purses, and/or have another stash sale here! Lets just say, I'm in!!
    Just wanted to wave Hi to Jill-I lived in El Cajon for almost 20 years. I peeked at your totes, all very nice. I too have been on a self imposed no buy/use what you have program. I biggest down fall is that Joann's flyer you get in the mail every week. Lately i don't even look, its hard but I just toss them instead of letting them sit around. I found if they were sitting around before the week was up I convinced myself I needed to go shop.
    I should have taken a before pic of the pile I made for 8 baby quilts in Oct. I am now proud to say I am down to 1 and going to start that one today.
    Good luck Everyone.

    Krystyna, I am so very sorry you had to endure that awful hurricane. As I watched in horror people losing everything they owned my heart ached. I am happy to hear of members being so generous, that's just what us quilters do. Please, please pm I have a question for you, if you wouldn't mind.

    Great advise on the unsubscribe from the on line stores-most of the time I can refrain due to the shipping.But Oh please I can't even open the e-mails from Missouri Quilt Co. or Connecting Threads or I am in big trouble-lol My motto w/ the on line stuff is " if you don't see u won't think u need it"
