    I have been very Bad! I went online this morning and browsed the sale at Fabric.com....An hour later i checked out with a 37.00 total after the coupon code and got Free shipping. So i now have over 10 yds of fabric coming and i have no idea what i am going to do with it yet. Santa will be SO MAD! I keep telling myself..."no more fabric" I have absolutely NOOOOOOOO willpower. I think i need to have DH take away my laptop for a few months. I hope i am not the only one with this "illness"
    I am starting to scare myself. Any advise on how to stop being so compulsive?????????

    I've taken a break for even looking - sale or no sale. It's going to be a tough winter with a frigid Dec. & gas prices going up by the day.

    Go in your sewing room and start organizing your fabric and all your scraps..... And you will feel like you just purchased more fabric, At least it keeps Me from buying more.
    I know how compulsive I am too, but I just keep telling myself enough is enough!

    I have no advice. Santa will be skipping my house as well. I'm a ConnectingThreads.com junkie, although fabric.com has its share of my money as well...

    After the fourth box from Connecting Threads came this last week, my DH said he should think about buying some stock in the company. LOL.
    BTW, the fabric samplers I bought for 50% off from CT are so nice! I have no plans for any of the fabric, just a great sale price that couldn't be passed by.

    Yep that's me, delete quickly before I have the chance to view what is on sale.

    It is sad though. But financially, it will have to wait awhile.

    This is going to sound strange but I was put on a new medicine that helped me stay awake, Nuvigil. It is like a speed. I run around & get a whole lot of nothing done but I found I did spend so much more money on internet than I had before I started taking this med! So I am trying to curb my buying while 'under the influence". DH doesn't really complain tho. I'm pretty good compared to some of the wives the guys he works with are. I've heard of them having a charge card & running it up to $10-20,000. I won't use a charge card thank goodness!

    I fully understand. I haven't ordered any fabric for about 10 days now. Everything I've ordered is in. I keep telling myself, you don't need any more fabric. But, I keep looking.....My New Years Resolution is to use up what I have. So can I place just one more order???????

    I fill my cart then leave the site with the satisfaction of shopping but not paying!! I finally had to hide my card for a few days to keep me honest!

    go into your sewing room, and pretend you are at a shop and buy buy buy, you will be surprised what you find in your shop that you forgot about

    Have fun!

    I do fantasy orders and have the thrill of shopping on line for all the pretty fabrics and threads. I empty my cart and save a ton of money.

    I was even worse...Fabric.com had a great sale and my total was $143 after coupon. Santa, I can explain...fabric prices are going up and I know that I'll never see such good prices again. Think that will work?

    If you find a cure, please share!! I am trying to put a leash on my own fabric purchases. DH drew the line after 15+ yds last week from e-bay. The fabrics are beautiful though & even he has to say I really got good deals!! I paid $3.25 yd for 8 yds of Christmas prints & got 7yds + for another $20.00 approximately. That was a stash builder with all types of fabrics & a lot of various colors. All is incredible & I'm thrilled with it all! DH says I must rest for a few wks after this last quilt is finished & all these new fabrics are calling to me...LOL!
