    nancia, you do have a way of putting a funny, positive "spin"on things. Thanks for the laugh.

    Well...I had a "slip up" at a church charity store on Saturday....there was a partial bolt of unbleached calico ($1.00 who could resist that), plus a metre or so of quilting fabric/scraps so for a grand total of $3.00 I did well. Did get stronger yesterday...on the way home from my Employment Agent I called in at Textile Traders and didn't buy any fabric - despite some heavily discounted fat quarters and some very cool batiks....I just came away with two packs of handquilting needles and a metre of fusible (20% discount). So I am getting stronger and concentrating on finishing two quilts and making some "stashbusters".

    It is my opinion that any purchase of fabric in or for the benefit of a religious organization is due special dispensation by the religious leaders of the quilt cult, and there fore and further more and not withstanding, doesn't count! JmHo.

    Overall, my stash has gotten larger since I started participating, but I'd say it is more controlled than it would be if I wasn't. I've learned why though, too much buying what I like instead of what goes together for a project. I end up needing to buy something else to be able to do a project, and 9 times out of 10, I don't come out of the store with only what I went for. This has been good for me though, and I hope we do it again next year. I'm going to keep following this thread til it dies, so if someone posts a link to the new thread here, I'll definitely find it!

    Nancia: I think we should nominate you our Cults lawyer. I am almost sure you could justify anything and we would all agree.

    I can't believe it's been almost a year already!! I have spent no where near what I have spent in prior years, and most of it was for specific projects and never made it to stash..I will soon have completed quilts for every family member, and then will concentrate on using stash for EVRYTHING!

    This is my second year quilting, so it's all stash. When i buy something i just love i try to get four or five fabrics together. On the other hand, sometimes i fixate on a theme and just collect them as i see them. Most of my fabrics are grouped and ready to be cut and put together, once i decide on a pattern i like. Then there are the kits. Connecting threads has wonderfully priced kits so I'll make one for a swap and then have the pattern to make it again later.
