just how much you spend in a year on our craft? I have never figured it out, but this year, I am trying to keep a record of what I spend for material and notions. If I would buy another machine, that doesn't go into the mix, because that is a long term investment. Has any one else ever kept track of what they spent over a year on material and notions? Just curious

And I just went to my expense sheet where I have kept track for the past 2 months, and maybe I will quit, because I added it up and was shocked. Some things are better left unknown

Some might say "too much", but I say "not enough". LOL

I don't keep track because I don't want to have a heart attack!

I spent much more a few years ago, but I have tons of fabric now and recently bought an Innova long arm, so I had to be good for a while and pay that off. I'm getting tired of shopping my stash, but I need to stay out of the LQS for a little while longer. Make that a long while, I promised my husband a tractor after the long arm got paid out.
