Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Here it is, the last day of April, and I'm feeling a bit smug! I actually made it thru a whole month without any fabric purchases at all! This included a trip to JoAnn's with my birthday gift - gift cards and a class at my LQS! I also finished a big PaperPrincess job (wedding invitations), so I was able to actually quilt this month. My brother wanted a quilt to put over a window in his TV room. We pulled about 50 Brown, Beige & +Green batiks from my stash. I wish I could say that they were fat quarters, but it was mostly yardage. See why I need to be on a buying freeze????
How did everyone else do?

Nothing this month. TaDa! For some unknown reason feeling the urge. Will resist, will resist....
I did really good this month until my DH took me to Wisconsin this past weekend. Unknown to me, they were having a Quilt Shop Marathon. I went to one shop to purchase enough fabric to finish a baby quilt when I found out about the Marathon. I wasn't going to participate, but DH heard about it and took me to 6 shops over the weekend and picked out things he wanted me to make for us. He was so cute, everytime we came out of a shop he told me to enter the next address into the GPS. Since I hadn't been in a quilt shop since Christmas and hadn't bought much this year, I really didn't feel guilty. Have to support the LQS - plus it was just so much fun. I really think my DH had as much fun as I did.

One whole month with no fabric purchases! I did go to JoAnn's early in the month, but I only bought interfacing for a friend and varigated thread for me - $.50 for large spool - I bought a few in colors I know I will use.
We are here to learn how to live in heaven - I'm still learning.
