    Red face This is the new me.....

    When I was working, I bought shoes all the time. Now that I am retired, I buy fabric all the time! I suspect in a few years I'll be in this group?! (actually I hope not, because I LOVE fabric!)

    I need to be there! Any fabric, gadget, thread, etc. that comes out I just have to buy and try! It's shameful!

    I'm there already. JoAnn's is quite far from me, so that's good. Haven't been there in ages. Hobby Lobby and two quilt stores are another story.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Today I spent time telling myself that there will always be fabric out there tomorrow and always fabrics that are on sale that I can fall in love with - do I really need to buy this or that piece of fabric today?! LOVE fabric! I also told myself that I haven't even made something from my last purchases, the purpose of which was to build up a stash so I had choices to venture into a more scrappy style. Resorting to mind games to help keep my fabric purchasing in line (and not wreck my budget!).

    Too much like most of us. I am in a real purge stage now where everyting is scrappy including the back - lot more sewing of seams but I THINK the stash is growing smaller.

    Very cute. I'm the blonde with the curly hair , front left on the picture. Can we make it more difficult to buy electronically. I'm quite good at avoiding real shops, but the virtual shops are just toooooo attractive.

    Too cute! And I work in a fabric store! Do I need to confess I hardly ever get a paycheck?

    I didn't buy any fabric all during lent this year. Didn't have the money, so that helped. Otherwise have gone a month without buying. That is hard but it has been easier then in years past.

    So me! I promised myself I wouldn't buy any fabric for 6 months and just got done buying fabric this morning. Bad girl!

    Like you and your shoes, I used to love shopping for clothing. But as the years go buy, I've found it's much more fun buying fabric - fabric always fits!
