    I hear you MadQuilter!. I've been deleting emails before opening them, from the likes of CT, NN, KQ, etc. Not much fun I'd say.

    And Emma my dear, I really like you. You say such consoling things to me! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    SEW MUCH FUN!

    Bezzie: If you show me yours I'll show you mine. Then, I bet, Rhonda has some show and tell too. Everybody was being so good the pressure was really building, whew, glad that's over.

    Paducah? Who could NOT buy fabric there? I've never been, but it sounds like the Mecca of all quilt shows. So enjoy your new purchases and remember what a great time you had!

    I think it is good if one or two of us fall off the wagon once in a while. This would be a boring thread otherwise. But...I want to see pics of what you all bought! Please!!!

    l don't think I fell off the wagon so much, it's more like I was riding the wheel, and all that going round and round made me dizzy so I needed a nice solid fabric to rest my spinning eyes, and there was this gorgeous blue just screaming it needed a home and chose mine. I am so lucky to have been chosen! good news! I have all the fabric I need in my stash to finish the quilt. I will post pictures later! meanwhile, I have nearly finished the baby quilt for my ddgd who will arrive on may 5th. HOORAY~ oops, hoo ray, don't wake her~ and the daing purple pansy charms jump ed out at me and screamed at me to make them into a quilt for my someday to-be dgd so to restore peace, I am.

    Well had a little slip up, but what can you do when you go to a Church Opportunity shop and find someone has donated a quilter's stash and cottons....couldn't leave them languishing and most were vintage, and good quality and American and...and...can't think of any more excuses. Got quite a lot of metreage for just a few dollars.

    Seems like a real cloud of dust was kicked up when we all fell off the wagon. Well, like Rhonda, I was going to just mention it in passing (for the sake of shamefaced honesty) and move on to May. Since Sandy wants all the gory details plus pictures how can I resist? As I've freely admitted in the past, sales are my huge downfall. Fabric.Com has been a long time favorite of mine but just recently their "sales" have been almost $7 a yard, not so tempting. Just recently they were having a sale on their clearance section, some $3.80 and $4.60 name brands. Some likely choices but I was still standing tall and sticking with our Moratorium, although I did put a few things in my cart. Just for fun. Then they started flashing the very same fabrics in ads along the border of the Boards website. Then, and this was the clincher, they offered another 20% off. Meaning $3.04 and $3.68 per yard, practically garage sale prices. Well I was lost, no hope, let go of that wagon and plop I'm in the dust. Will show pictures when I receive it, mostly blenders but still pretty colors. Wish I could say that I was really whole heartedly back on the wagon but garage sales are gearing up and Joann's has a weeklong 50% of sale. It's not looking good for me.

    Dear Emma, Earthwalker and Nancia,...Like I said, this would be a boring thread if we all stuck to our guns. Finding peace, getting good quality fabric and then finding sales..what can I say. You all did Good! Dust yourselves off and climb back on.

    Sew, are we all ready to do as SanyinZ4 says, and with a good dusting off and a bunch of low cost, garage sale, special deal, comfy fabric to sit on, climb back on that wagon and just sew to our hearts content and thumb our noses at the fabric we did not buy? Maybe...just maybe. Another month is only days away. Cheers to us all I say. At least we are trying our darnedest and are mindful of spending outside our stash. I know I've come a long way baby. "OK move over just a bit and I'll try this wagon again. Thanks, and that is absolutely the prettiest fabric I have ever seen, where did you get it, do they have more?"
    SEW MUCH FUN!
