Christmas has come and gone. What is your reflection of this year? Mine was very different from the past years. The husband and I agreed to no gifts especially since we just did the cruise. Our friends adopted a family from the United Christmas Service here in Indianapolis. We offered to help them adopt this family and were assigned to the 4 year old boy. Toys, clothes, and shoes were on his wish list. I had to keep the hubby out of the toy section. Feedback from our friend says they were very grateful for the gifts. Looking forward to doing this again. (more…)
This will be the hardest month I have ever had. I have started my fabric fast for the month of September. We are 10 days into it and the amount of sales and promotions I have seen so far is making me sad. I will stick to my guns.
See this picture of my fabric stash that is out??? Yeah, I need to get through some of that before I add anymore. Good thing I have a craft show in October to help me get energized to create more projects.
Rules for the month of September Fast:
- I can only purchase notions that I absolutely need: needles, thread, spray, etc.
- No fabric can be purchased for future use.
- If and only if I get into a project that requires more fabric, that is the only fabric I can purchase.
Oh man, I really hope I can hold out and make it through the entire month. Hawthorne Threads and Fat Quarter Shop are very tempting with their constant updates on Facebook.
Speaking of Facebook, I have a group on there…Quiltytherapy. Just getting it started, join me group, who knows what I might post on there.
