TO BUY OR NOT

Just to get some chatter going I am posing a question. I don’t know about everyone else, but I am addicted to buying fabric! I think I love buying fabric more than sewing! My stash is so large that it will take a couple of lifetimes to use it up. Anyone else out there like that? Well, I am making an “attempt” to not buy any more fabric, except for backing and batting, and see how long I can go. So far I have not bought any fabric, with the exception of a Christmas gift from my dad, and as we all know, gifts don’t count, since January 1. I did buy 5 yards of single sided pre-quilted fabric for backing small projects and some Insulibrite (sp?).

Is anyone else making an honest effort to stop buying and start using what is in our stashes, besides me?

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
