Good Morning, Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Easter and/or Passover yesterday! I celebrated the period of Lent (not Catholic) by giving up a few things and I was actually successful this year. In addition to giving up coffee, chocolate, and potatoes, I also gave up buying fabric, patterns, or quilt books. Yes, I did it and I did not buy any during that time. I wanted to see if I could do it as a personal challenge for myself and another reason, I have WAY TOO MUCH STASH! Then again, it doesn’t hurt that just before Lent started, I did go to all 3 local quilt shops and bought about $80 worth at each store. 🙂
The funny thing is that even though I gave up the chocolate is that I had my first piece yesterday, it didn’t taste as good as I thought it would. Same with the coffee and potatoes. I don’t really miss them. Well, actually, I do miss my coffee but I got used to drinking hot tea instead. I do feel better from it and have lost a little weight from it. As for the fabric and books, yes, I really did miss those and am ready to go shopping again! LOL! Also, it doesn’t hurt that one of the LQS is going out of business and will be closing their doors this month for good. I have to and want to look around and shop! At least as a reward for being so good during Lent!
