    I would say to DH that I am trying not to buy more fabric, but if he really wants me to make this quilt for us, I will be willing to make the exception just for him. SMILESSSSSSS

    It's really bad when you can't even make it into the first week of the new year. My resolution is to try to finish some ufo's big time this year and I found myself signing up for a mystery class on super bowl sunday. Guess I can enjoy having some company in my downfall. :lol:

    Buy! Remember costs are going up all over. Plus you shouldn't cold turkey the wagon problem, just ween yourself slowly, easier on the nerves, less apt to have mood swings and those around you will be safe.

    I talked to DH about it last night. He said he doesn't want to put any pressure on me cause he knows I have a lot of other projects. What a sweetheart! I've decided I'll go ahead and get the fabric but I'm going to wait till I finish at least one more UFO. How's that for a compromise?

    Aww is that sweet or what? He doesn't want to put any pressure on you to FORCE you to BUY FABRIC!! Now you HAVE to do it out of the goodness of your own heart so as NOT to disappoint such a wonderful man.

    Good choice! I don't really think it's an absolute, absolute "no buy". It's you'll promise to use your stash as much as possible. Only if and when you can't use it, go for it...

    Love your colors and the quilt, please post a picture when it's done.

    As long as you finish the first quilt, I give you permission to buy whatever you need (to complete what you have in your stash)to begin a new project. If you finish something you can start a new one.

    My resolution this year is to only buy things to complete things that involve things that are already started. Since you have your stash, that counts as already started!

    I not only slipped off the wagon, it ran over me as I lay gasping on the ground. LOL Lots of fabrics at the thrift store as I guess people are clearing out after their holiday sewing projects.

    I don't think thrift store fabric counts, does it???? After all the reason we're not buying is money and has nothing to do with the fact that all our closets are full, our beds are humped in the middle from all the fabric stuffed underneath, our spare room is stuffed with bins of fabric...oh go buy the thrift store fabric anyway, just use it really quickly!

    Buying fabric from a thrift store is donating to a good cause and recycling too, so that doesn't count at all. :wink:

    Yeah have to agree with that, my DH asked me if I purchased all the fabric I wanted because the price of cotton is going up, I said no, but that's all the bank account would allow...how sad.
