Lead us not into temptation...
Halfway through the Great Fabric Depression! I was priding myself on doing great, not even thinking about buying fabric! Well, there was a little bitty episode last week when I was cutting out a quilt for a class sample and I thought I had all the fabric. I didn't and my first thought was to run out and buy some. No, this is where I'm supposed to be creative and use what I have. Well, what do you know? I had fabric that matched, only not enough so I have to use a couple of different pieces. Okay, not bad, I can do this. Uh oh--no black flannel! I HAVE to have it for this pattern--or do I? I'm still pondering that one on how to make snowmen hat out of black Kona cotton and make it look a little more dimensional.
Last night was the doozy though. I also teach at JoAnn's super store and had a class last night. Now normally I can breeze in and out of there, not having time to look at fabric. But no, last night was the rotary cutting class and then I lead them to the fabric areas to teach them a little bit about choosing fabric. I buy JoAnn's fabric for backings and wouldn't you know....it was 40% off and I get an additional discount on top of that! and they have all this new stuff....I looked and thought about it, but I was strong..hear me roar! LOL
I guess it's easy to be good when you are no where NEAR a store and have that temptation--the struggle begins when you have to be around it! I wish I had this good of willpower when dieting!
