    Imagine my surprise when I learned I have won a $350 shopping spree ($50 gift certificate from 7 different shops) :thumbup: I was speechless- which anyone knows me wold find miraculous :roll: I've never won anything - let alone something so wonderful...once I come back down to earth the question is - how to carefully plan what I need/want, etc.......
    so, my question is...how would you spend it?

    I think I would spend it on background fabric and backing. I have so much stash that when I go to quilt I always have to get the background and backing..Have fun!

    Congradulations!! I think I would also go for background fabrics-at least 8 yards of each-plus a few books I have been drooling over-and if they carried it, the line called "Stonehenge" from Northcott-I would spend hundreds just on those!! OOOHHH-am I jealous!!!

    I'd do some thinking/ planning first, and do an inventory also. Lucky you! I'm very happy for you. Have fun.

    Fabric, tone on tone, border fabric, backing, batting and needed notions like needles.
    A big congrats. I am so happy for you.

    Congratulations! I would spend it a little at a time and make it last as long as I could! What fun!

    PS I used to have a cockatiel like the one in your avatar.

    Congratz! I'd spend half on what I love looking at but never have the money to buy and the other half on the stuff I'm always stuck buying because it's always forgotten like batting, background fabric, thread, needles ect.

    If you would post some of the fabric you buy, it would be fun to see.
