    you get barraged with emails from online shops with all the tantalizing pictures of what's new/for sale, etc - and even though you don't need fabric, nor have the $$ to buy it, you have to click and just look.... and then you see all these beautiful droolworthy prints......
    Ugh. Just saw Moda's "Gorgeous Array of Flowers" line and would just LOVE to fill a bin with it. (for a future project, of course :wink: ) Oh well. Hopefully it will be around for a while!
    So why do I look?! :roll: :lol:

    We love fabric, just to look at and feel the beauty. We are happy with more fabric.

    Merry Christmas

    I do exactly the same thing.... Just opened Connecting threads and added somthing to my shopping cart but did not submit it... It makes me feel better thinking I purchased somthing without the pain of paying for it. It works every time for me.... Well' maybe some of the time.

    I thought of putting in in my cart too, but then I thought "why?!" lol! Some places keep it in your cart forever, can't remember if Fabric Shack does or not. It'd be nice to keep it there to make sure I don't forget about it.... Oh crazy. It'll take me years to get through my current projects as it is! lol!

    Now, now! You all know your want new fabric every now and then regardless of how much you already have :D

    I think the way most of those carts work is whoever checks out first gets it. It doesn't hold it for you forever.

    it's good to look at all the new stuff ..... you get fabulous ideas for future consideration. i prefer putting all the goodies in the wish list or tack 'em on the design board. i am afraid to put them in my cart .....

    I like getting these ads. I 'window' shop, add to my cart, look at the total after S & H, and then close out. Love 'buying' fabric this way and I save so much money. :)

    I find I would always have enough money for fabric, if only the family didn't want to eat. lol I too put it in the cart and dont buy, or go back and only get what I really want that fits my budget.

    They are offering a mystery quilt on the quilting board. The fabric "Gorgeous Array of Flowers" sounds like it would be a great combination. HE HE HE HE
    MERRY CHRISTMAS
