    Can't believe I said that!!

    Dear Canadian cousin coming to town for her bi-annual visit on Monday. We have all our Fabric Depot coupons ready to go!!

    Discussing what she was going to look for, her future projects, etc and I blurted out "I don't really need any fabrics."

    Dead silence. I feel like I've been kicked out of the family!! How many times have you heard anybody say that?? But I have lots of projects that I'm enjoying now. (May look at the new Laurel Burch horse fabric though.)

    My husband gave me a look the other day because I didn't need anything from JoAnn's.

    Then he asked if I was sick...lol

    Reminds me of a conversation I had with DH when we were attending a quilt show recently. As we came upon a large (and gorgeous) display of fabric he asked me if I "needed" any fabric. I quickly reminded him that "need" had nothing to do with it and a fellow quilt show attendee chimed in to back up my statement. LOL

    I say it -- and I mean it -- but I can't stick to it when I see fabric that I'd love to have, so I "try" to stay out of the vicinity of any fabric except my own! It also helps that I'm on a limited income right now!

    You can stock up on backing, batts and thread. I am trying to use my stash as well but I am always short on those.

    I too have enough to keep me busy for a long time. But that doesn't stop me from looking and buying more...this really is like an addiction....sigh.

    I "shop" my stash first before buying new fabrics. It's called "cashing in my investments."

    I certainly don't need any more fabrics and keep telling myself that. I mostly buy remnants of some I already have or small amounts of some I think will go with some I have. Always good to have a variety for scrappies.
    I'm sure you will find something you 'need'.

    I never thought I'd ever say that, but now that I have enough, I say it. So for those of you who can't say it and are still shopping, I guess it proves that you don't have enough fabric yet!

    I'm with Chasing Hawk. My Dh handed me the coupons from Joanne's. and asked what I fabric I was going to buy. He looked at me as if I had two heads when I said I didn't need any fabric. Thought the poor man was going to have a heart attack as I said that. LOL

    I buy fabric I don't need all the time!! It's just a bad habit I can't break. Sometime I buy it because it's for block exchange at guild, or fat quarter exchange and then find I can't part with it. Shame on me!

    Do any of us 'need' more fabric -Probably not. BUT it would be a sin to waste those coupons. And you don't want to sin, right! Have fun

    That sounds like something I would say because I usually don't buy any fabric unless I have a project in mind. If I buy fabric just because I like it, I end up with a lot of stuff I never use that doesn't really go with anything else. Hope you have fun shopping.

    I was on a site the other day (can't remember which one) but it had painted across a wall "My husband said if I brought any more fabric home he was leaving, I'm going to miss him"
