    Okay, so I messed up my cutting- I am making a quilted flag to hang. I go to the store to buy 1/2 yard of the fabric I ran short on andthey dont't have it any more, at least right now. So, do I just leave the store? NO, of course not, I walk out with 2 bags of other fabric, non of which which could be used for the flag..... Is this a sign? LOL, I know somany of you know what this is like!

    Problem I see no problem. I'm sure you needed that fabric. Just because you don't know what you need it for right now does not mean you don't need it. I think you're fine. Just like the rest of us.

    This is called A D D I C T I O N ... and luckily there is no 12-step program for this !!

    I received a "small" tax refund a couple weeks ago, and am now the proud Mama to 25 yards of fabric, purchased on SALE online!!

    Never pay full price!!! :D :lol:

    Problem?? I don't think so. I have never been in a fabric store of any kind and not walked out with far more than I was looking for. You will find a use for it and if not it is just nice to look at!! Like they say...can you spell S_T_A_S_H. He/she who dies with the most fabric wins. I would say we all have a good start. I will try and post my stash if I can figure out how. You will just die laughing..

    Nothing strange about this! :D I do this all the time. it's called being an addicted quilter! And I don't think there is a cure, not that I would ever want one. If the house catches on fire, I would save my stash first! So much of my material is no longer available. I even made a quilt which I call my file quilt with a 4in square of each piece of material I had at the time! Now have enough to do another one! So don't fight it, just give in and enjoy it. :lol: :lol:

    I really don't see a problem here. If anything, you are helping the economy with keeping the fabric stores in business!!! That's a good thing!!!!!

    No, you don't have a problem. I do this ALL the time. Even when you have a bookcase full of fabric. You'll still have to go back cause you will need something else.Your just planning ahead for your next quilt.. :lol: :lol:

    I tell my husband that when inflation hits the economy all the fabric I have bought recently will look like a bargain.

    that's it--I'm "bargain"shopping.

    This is called in the back of my mind working on my next project cause this one is at a standstill. Just take it home & put on the shelf & have for a rainy day. I have material I have bought on trips that I keep for a special quilt I'm going to make someday. If I use everything I have bought this quilt will cover half of Texas.

    Why do you think Joann's sends those 40% off coupons. The thing you want is on sale for 30% off so you can't use the coupon , you search for something that you can use the coupon on and buy 5 other things on sale and off you go saving $2.00 and spending $35.00. Quite a shopper!!!

    Too funny. I wish I had found you ladies a long time ago. I have more fabric than I could use in a lifetime, yet still buy more every time I go to get thread, buttons, whatever... My children know that as they leave for college - second one goes this fall - I'm making their rooms extensions of my sewing room :lol:
