    not to buy fabric. I am not supposed to buy any fabric since I got my "windfall" from Craigslist and have more fabric than I'll ever use. BUT, when I went to a fabric outlet store today (to look for a backing for a music quilt), I just couldn't help myself. It's all so pretty and relatively inexpensive. So please, don't tell my DH I bought more!! Last week he said "you shouldn't even be thinking about buying more fabric". Well, I guess you could say I really didn't think about it, I just did it. Perhaps, I'll behave myself for a month or so now ...

    I know the feeling. I'm trying to use up stash and only buy to augment a project. Right now I'm avoiding the LQS and working hard on projects hoping that helps. Maybe if I remove so much from stash, I can add more and no one will be the wiser. I feel for you.

    Have heard this story before (LOL). However, when getting fabric for backing, batting, etc. it's just wayyyyy tooooo tempting not to look.

    I think "diet" should be "buy it" ROFL. It's so hard not to. Seriously....

    I agree about the trade off. Tools for fabric. No one had better complain about my stash. You can't keep warm under a drill press.

    Besides diet is low in starch, not in stash! :roll:

    If He didn't technically say you couldn't buy fabric... he just said you shouldn't think about it... sounds like you did the right thing... bought without thinking ha ha ha :lol:

    So for every piece you don't think to buy sell something you do not need to compensate for what you bought you win and hubby wins :)

    I believe a group of husbands have been getting together behind our backs. Mine told me I had better quit buying fabric too.
