    No certain time of the year. Just when I see something I want.

    i'm kind of cyclic about it. sometimes i'm really in fabric mode, and there isn't enough in the universe to satisfy my need for it. then, i'll go months without even thinking about it. right now, i'm in "mail order only" mode. i went to joanne last week, twice, hoping to find something, and got totally skunked. came home without even a fat quarter. it might be the colorways that i find particularly ugly, right now, as well. so much of them look like the stuff i lived through in the early '60s - '70s that they don't tug at my heart or eyes. i lived through those once, and i refuse to do that again. they were ugly then, they are ugly now, at least to these aging eyes. (i'd rather do the skulls and crossbones that are out there, than the orange and browns, and pink/browns i see. at least the skulls are something new!)

    The month I buy the least is May as I am totally involved in getting all my planting done in my garden and around my house. So really I don't take time to shop for any fabric and my money is spent @ the plant nurseries that month :-D

    Recently I've been organizing my stash and I shouldn't HAVE to buy fabric for a long time. But really, depends on when payday. I'm retired now, but often go into to sub. I wear my button that says "will work for fabric".

    That mite Bitsy sitting up, but sleepy is charming, and I laughed at the cat on your machine! I think, they think that we have invented some interesting toys for them!

    Right now, during Lent season, when we are supposed to sacrifice something that really matters, so I don't get to purchase ANY fabric for the next 6 weeks. (sob, sob, sniff, sniff). But like most of you, I have enough projects and fabric to keep me busy for way past the 6 weeks, so I'll probably survive. DH has to give up Ice Cream. :) ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

    We live on a working farm, we hire most of the work, but do feed more people in summer, time is short then with me having a large garden and can & freeze a lot, for ourselves and some of the children (married) But if I see some thing at any time of the year I`ll pick it up, as I always have a new quilt in mind.
