Success! A Week of Not Buying!

It's been a week of not buying any fabric! I've been to the New Quilt Shop TWICE - with other quilting buddies and just watched as they bought stuff, and I didn't! What a powerful feeling. Must admit to fondleing quite a few lucious pieces tho! :) I did buy a couple of rolls of batting yesterday, but that's a good thing as I'm using that to finish up quilts!

A week ago Friday, as mentioned in earlier post I took a class from Judy Neimeyer. Since then, I have worked my 15 minutes (OK, more like a couple of hours) a day and have been working on my Conestoga Star quilt. I think I have overcome my fear of paper piecing, and was actually enjoying it! I now have 84 of the 160 wedges required for the quilt completed! Whoo Hoo. I took them to Bee yesterday, and removed the paper while chatting.

Today, am getting hubby to put up some shelves I got at IKEA, and will spend 30 minutes or so on my continual project of getting organized in my studio. Almost ready to post some pictures of that! (Usually when I think of pictures, the camera is downstairs and on the other side of the house).

Now it's on to housecleaning, as I've got 3 customers coming over today to pick up quilts.

Congratulations on the week of no buying, Betty! It does become easier. I can now go to a quilt store and browse, leave empty-handed. Keep up the good work!
