Retail Therapy

I have been quite smug about my ongoing resolve to use from the stash and resist buying more fabric. That said, a girl can only take so much of all this piety!

I succumbed to temptation on Friday. I had 15 minutes to kill, and stopped in to Old Town Fabrics to see what I could see. They had an oh-so-inviting basket of 1/2 yard cuts marked $5 each, or 5 for $20. What a deal!

I bought 10; those 2 blues on the bottom left are the same; this totals 5 yards of fabric for $40+tax. That's pretty close to a 20% savings, so I now feel smug about saving some money while indulging in some rare retail therapy in the fabric store!

Gosh, it felt good.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

I've been indulging myself with online sales too Jayne. It's all stuff I'm going to need someday right? Fabric has gotten so spendy that I'm happy to have a stash to work from!

How could you resist, they are gorgeous. It would be like refusing an open box of chocolates. And at a great price.

Good selection-----you did well, Jayne. A well spent 15 minutes.

Well I think it was almost your duty to buy those fabrics with that sort of saving on them.
