I'll be darned if it didnt work!

Have you noticed on my side bar? The listing of my fabric purchases? Half way though the year and the total is $245. That my dears is TRULY AMAZING! When I decided way back when in this post Looking Forward to start listing my fabric purchases to keep me in check I would have never thought I could have been anywhere near as frugal as I have been the first part of the year. I have to say, I think I am going to continue. I have barely made a dent in my stash, so why buy more? Its time to clear out the old.
However, I will be going north to retreat in September, with our regular shopping trip to Shipshewana, I know I will have to buy! buy! buy! at Yoder's and Lolly's. Plus, there's a Pennsylvania Dutch BOM at the Fat Quarter Shop using the Wisscasset Collection by Minick and Simpson that I'm afraid has my name written all over it. But I think if I am very careful, I still just might be able to stay under $500 this year....can I do it?

Nope mary I dont' see you staying 5 or under. You can spend that just in SEP. Don't forget Lowerys too.

Setting a spending limit is so much better than a spending freeze. I may need to adopt this theory next year!

Only problem with listing the amounts is that sometimes hubby reads my blog!!! LOL
