Painfully, I met with my financial advisor last week. He told me to quit buying fabric, so I'm back on my diet. I don't quit eating when I'm on Weight Watchers, so I'm not going to quit buying fabric. I'm just restricting my purchases.
Here are my dieting rules:
1. I can buy full-priced fabric to finish a current, in-progress project and only if I have thoroughly searched my stash.
2. I can buy half-priced fabric, a remnant*, or what is left of an air bolt** if it is one I've had my eye on for a future project.
That's it. Just two rules. Should be easy to remember when I am tempted to buy from a new fabric collection.
Temptation is all around me. Have I mentiond that I work at Glad Creations in Minneapolis? Check them out at gladcreationsquilts.com!
* A small piece of discounted fabric.
** A bolt that is more air than fabric, usually less than 2 yards.
