Wednesday Ponderings

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

A while back Stephanie had a giveaway on her blog.  2 yards of beautiful Michael Miller fabric.  I won it!  Thanks Stephanie--I love it!  I am saving it for an apron or a bag or maybe borders on a quilt.  My colors, a brown background and teals and pinks and lime green and orange. 



I am waiting on two fabric orders, my stash report will take a hit!  But that's okay, it's a "need" vrs a "want"!  When I feel like buying fabric, that's my mantra--"is it a need or a want?"  It helps, less impulse buying for a quilt that I'm going to make "later".   What helps you when you get the urge to buy fabric??

What helps me? Taking my girls with me, since then I have to buy them fabric too, and my stash report looks even worse! It makes me stay out of the shops unless I really need something.

When I go into the local shop, it helps if I tell myself I can only use cash, not the debit card.

When I'm online? Just not checking out online shops, because I will inevitably find something I absolutely "must" have.

I LOVE your won fabric. It will be fun to see what you make. When I'm shopping, even by myself, I hear my friend Pam's voice say, "Oh, you don't have any fabric at home?"

That fabric will make a really cute apron. You are lucky to have won it.
