    I made it!!!

    Well, I still have five hours to go......

    My fabric diet was a success. I did not buy fabric in the month of June!!! Even went in a new shop w/my best friend the other day and I did not cave....it was hard....very, very hard!

    Of course, it helps that I can't sew right now!

    Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!

        Great job, Pat. I think I might try this for July. I better go cancel my email notifications for the DD.

          Congratulations on holding out! We are stronger than we think. Me too! I did not buy a single piece of fabric for whole month. I even managed NOT to check the DD a few times.

            Oh, I check it every night!! 10pm on the dot! I think I will continue for another month too, especially since I don't think I'll be sewing anytime soon! Maybe I will do it all the way up till the retreat, because I'm definitely buying fabric then!

              That reminds me that I forgot to get the DD. I'm collecting blue batiks.

              Good job though

                Great hold out.

                I have been doing good on the buying front except for quilty box items and FQS's sew box. Oher than those, no fabric ordered. I have purchased the circle cutter, needles, and some thread spools. Other than those type things I have kept spending to a minimum.

                Going to continue and keep my spendings way down. Feels good for a change.

                Keep going Pat. It will be worth it when you get to the retreat and can shop till you drop!

                  I think I only bought one pattern all month! That was just today, a new release. They are always on sale the first day or two, so I did it.

                  And MM took pity on me the other day when I was drooling over some fantastic fabric when we were at Hancocks and bought me all that was left on the bolt which was about eight yards!! I'm going to make a pair of capris and use the rest for purses once I start sewing again.

                      Good for you Pat! Good luck holding out until the retreat,I hope you will be sewing by then.If you do hold out til then you should pack an extra suitcase for fabric or ask the store to ship it for you.

                          I was told they will ship for free if you spend a certain amount. I might just get a box and fill it because I can check two bags because I'm an employees mom and that is one of the benefits along w/free flying!
