    150$...hmmmmm
    Well if it was cash...I would say that I would just pay bills with it...I am bad about when I get money I just put it in my account and it goes to the house fund.
    IF I get a gift card...I will usually buy myself something...

    The first thing I'd do is get the sewing machine I put on layaway for my daughter out. With what is left I would get some new rulers to replace some of my old, worn out ones, plus a couple of new ones I really need. I would buy a new cutting mat, batting, thread, and backing fabric. By then I'd probably have spent more then $150! :lol:

    I don't think that I would spend it on fabric this time, I have to try to depleat my stash. I wish I could have a new pair of ski boots, but that would not be enough. I could go to Barnes and Noble, and spend it there.

    I'd put it in my Hawaii vacation fund. If I had to spend it now, I'd buy some clothes.

    If the money was a gift from a family member I know it would be expected that I would buy something for myself. I would have to really put my thinking cap on. What to buy for "myself" that we could all enjoy? That's a tough question.

    Well, I would put it towards some rulers. I think I really chopped my ruler tonight ( I don't think it will cut straight any more) but I would also get the triangle ruler to make a OBW. Any extra money would go to a find a special fabric for the OBW!

    I've had a couple of rulers that I've used so much I've worn a curve into the edge.

    No wonder my strips weren't even any more.

    If I was given this amount of money, I would beat feet right to the closet fabric store & buy some of the things that we so desperately need to complete our sewing projects!! :D I would also buy my gifts for the Secret Santa 2010 gift exchange!!
    :D :D :D :D

    I could use some new clothes, and of coarse to the local quilt shop to find that special fabric.

    I'd use it to get "Kayak on the Lake" (a quilt top) quilted and use the rest for shavings. :-D

    That's my problem! Over the years I've occasionally whacked off the edges with the rotary blade & I have to be careful which edge I measure with. :roll: This year my goal is to replace my rulers, at least the 6x24" and 6x6" rulers.

    I did manage to snap one of my 6x24" rulers in half. I set it on a chair and then sat in the chair. Oops! :oops: Nothing says "loose a little weight" like a snapped quilting ruler. :P

    (((((BARNBUM))))) I haven't seen you in awhile and was wondering how you were. I was going to send you a PM after the holidays, in case you were just stupid-busy like the rest of us. :lol:

    I'd buy a new cutting mat and probably a couple of ruklers and buy some e-books from this site! I bought one and love it.
