I am extremely proud of myself.

I drove down to Niagara Falls, NY to go to Joann's.

I needed Boy Scout fabric, as my scout master's wife had her baby a month early, so I'm scrambling to get the quilt done now!

I went in, got the fabrics I needed... and nothing else. Even though fat quarters were 99 cents, and there was some reduced fabric I loved!!! I used my will power and didn't even look.

Normally I would stock up on stuff "just in case"

I think having to cross the border the same day maybe had something to do with it, but I'm proud of myself anyways!!!

Let me tell you how proud I am of you!!! :mrgreen: Between last week and this week around $300, if not more and thats not including the stuff the week before that!!! Bringing stuff in and hiding - as DH already thinks I have enough!! Then I'll bring it out and say this is what I'm going to make with this and its for!! I just sort of get this look. Suppose he's caught on? :lol: :lol:

I found coats thread from .50 to .95 on clearance a spool. Let me tell you do I have the thread now. Then I went down the line and just started pulling all different colors and makes from all-purpose, machine & hand quilting, etc. Then there's the notoins and fabric!! OMG!!!

Definitely have to stay away for awhile!! Will be going through therapy though!! :lol: :lol: What am I suppose to do with my 50% off coupons?

Our Joanne's is having a 50% off all quilting notions and tools sale through this Saturday. Luckily, (or unluckily??) I don't have any extra money. So although I really want the big cutting mat, I just can't get it. Oh well, I guess I don't really NEED it right now..... so, it's OK!!!
