Stashbuster Weekly Update

I didn't buy any fabric! Went to the Fat Quarter Shop (online) and filled up my basket, but then closed everything out and didn't buy!! This week I finished 3 Sewing Machine Thingees, did 50 units (so far) for the 1st installment on Bonnie's Mystery quilt, cut more 1 1/2 inch strips for a second quilt with the same pattern, made a small Christmas quiltlet with an Angelina Christmas tree for my Old Auntie and did 2 fat quarters of Christmas fabric layered with tinzel and tulle (think Bonnie McCaffrey) for coffee cup sleeves...all from stash. Whoo Hoo!! Also put the binding and a label on Jim & Cath's Kimono Quilt. I'll post a picture as soon as we get batteries. Don't know if I will have time to sew today...we have to go Christmas shopping. Would really love to finish up the last 50 rail fence units today so can start on step number 2 tomorrow.

Oh, my! I've done that before too . . filled up my basket and then closed it before making the purchase. It's gives me the feeling of "shopping" without actually buying but I still try not to do it just in case I have a weak moment and end up buying!

Great job on avoiding the purchases. My current no buy barricade is that we are moving in 3 weeks. I don't want to move any more items than I have to.
