My favorite not so LQS is Quilter's Corner in New Milford, CT. During December, they gave out sealed red envelopes with discount cards inside that could only be opened during the month of January at the cash register in the store. I held out as long as I could and finally had to find out what my special discount was.
TWENTY FIVE PERCENT! I think I should be congratulated for coming home with as few items in my bag as I did. All of the purchases are to finish WIPs.
2 yards dark green Robert Kaufman "Fusion" to be used as borders for 2 charity quilts.
2 1/2 yards of a beautiful batik (end of the bolt) and 2 yards of a swirly flower batik, both of these are vying to be the borders on the Jambalaya quilt I am making for Rosewillow's "Too Good to Cut" challenge.
3 fat quarters (2 pink dot, 1 black Fusion) to finish swap blocks.
Added this week 7.25 yards
Added year to date 7.25 yards
Used this week 0
Used year to date 0
Seeing the 0s on the page is discouraging, but hopefully the new additions will be used within a month.
Please check Judy L's blog to see what everyone else is doing.
I think it is great when you buy fabric to finish a WIP. That way it comes in and it goes out really fast. Now finish up those WIPs then you will be even.ReplyDelete
I am like you, I spend too much time reading blogs about quilting and not enough time actually quilting. This year I am trying to limit my computer time as well as my stash buying.
