It’s confession time again. 😉 How did we all do this week? I’ve already confessed my purchases which took place right after last week’s check-in so I almost wrote that I didn’t buy anything. It’s just been a (gasp!) whole 6 days and that feels like forever.
I even went to our Modern Quilt Guild Meeting last night which was at a fabric store with plenty of fabric on sale, but I resisted purchasing anything. And you know what? It felt really good to do that. I know that I would have bought a few things otherwise and I’m not sure that I really need them. In fact, there is only one that I can think of that I want to go back and get at the end of this. And if it is still on sale (or maybe more on sale!) then I will be getting enough to back a quilt…because it just speaks to me. (But not in a creepy I’m insane kind of way).
I also did a couple of swaps that make me very happy. And I’m working on organizing my fabric so that is a healthy reminder of the amount of fabric that I already have.
So tell us all how your week went. Two down, 6 to go…I know we can do this! But let’s have a little extra motivation…regardless of whether your diet was “successful” this week or not, also let us know what is your best tip for avoiding buying fabric. I have a few methods, but I don’t want to steal anyone’s ideas.
And…the best tip might just get a little prize! Just for helping us out so much! 😉
So confess and support!

So far so good I really wanted to to to the fabric store yesterday but I went to the bookstore instead and bought I love patchwork, great book for project ideas to use my stash, this is only the second week, 6 more to go can I make it…don't know but I have 2 more books with ideas I bought Elizabeth Hartman's book last week. Seems I still have a quilting addiction one track mind and all. Well that and food but I also agreed to 12 weeks of dieting at work. Read, sew, read, sew …keep mind off of fabric and food.
I made it through another week! Winning a giveaway this week that included fabric was a wonderful treat, and meant I didn't need to purchase my fix! Hmmm, I wonder if I can find and win enough giveaways to make it through the next 6 weeks?
My trick for not buying? Enter lots of giveaways and pray you win something, or do a swap!
No fabric for me! Quilting is Murder is making things tempting, though. 🙂
I need a jury decision. At the thrift store I was able to buy 2 cotton sheets, 3 cotton shirts and a pair of linen pants for $6. My intention is to someday cut them up for quilts. Do I have to count them as fabric?
I didn't buy any fabric this week! It helps that I am also doing a weekly stash report and would have to count the additions, plus as my husband and I were in Prague this weekend, there was only one fabric store with one shelf of quilting fabric and none of it was good.
Another week being good – though I have to go near the fabric store for batting and needles tomorrow, I'm trying to resist the temptation to buy fabric while I'm there.
no fabric here!!
2nd week without purchasing fabri – Wow! I can't believe it. I have been able to complete one quilt top and started a second. I like that!
Failed again. Had to buy some minky to back the quilt I made for a gift. Ah well.
