    As the summer burns us up hop on the band wagon and join us this week as we giveaway another 1500 points! I love summer! Of course the summer as hot as it is also means water! Lakes, pools, oceans, rivers, sprinklers, usually however we can find it! My question today are you more likely to buy new swimwear or new fabric this year?

    Congrats forhunt!

    I bought a cheap tankini top to go with an old bottom that still kinda fits. LOL....the top is bigger, looser and longer! I went cheap all the way so I could spend $$ on fabric instead. Gone are the $100 swimwear days!! I would rather be sewing in the AC!

    I have to agree with the other ladies so far - who wants to spend over $100 on a swimsuit, when you can spend it on fabric!!! That will almost make an entire king quilt, especially with summer deals and the "deal of the day". There's no contest!

    I don't do much swimming anymore. I've had 3 surgeries in my left ear in the past 1 1/2 years and I'm scared to death to do anything to it like immerse it in water. So for me, fabric, no question about it.
    When life throws you scraps, make a quilt!

    Congratulations to forhunt@ihug.co.nz!

    I have not purchased a new bathing suit for several years. But that is about to change as I have joined a class for power walking in the pool and need to have more than one suit. I will definitely purchase a suit and not fabric. Too much work to sew a suit for someone my size and shape LOL

    No swimmin here! Can't look at myself in a swimsuit and don't want anyone else to see that horror picture!!!! :O :O
    Sewing in the ac is much safer than a beached wale in the pool!!!!!

    Swimwear for me would be a very POOR investment....fabric on the other hand is always a good investment!!!! Fabric gets my vote!

    Fabric. Too much of a chance out here in the desert of getting sunburned while swimming. Plus, I really don't want to make everyone go blind ...

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?
