Quit Spending Money!!

That is something that I have yet to perfect. If I see something I want, I buy it. Saturday I ran into Target and found the cutest slippers (I think so anyway)

Sunday Autumn and I went to Connie's house and stash shopped. For those that don't know her, Connie used to own a LNS in St Louis and closed her shop when she moved to LA. She had some silk threads that I bought. I think they may come in handy for some future exchanges, etc.

This is Sapphire Expressions from Silkweaver that Autumn gave me. I am going to try to use it for Stargazer. I am concerned that it will be too dark but, I will pull the threads and look at it. I have been searching for fabric for this pattern ever since it came out. My problem is that with its name, I feel like it should be done on fabric that looks like night but I am afraid that the colors will blend in. Oh well, we will see.

This last picture is my stash haul from Needlecraft Corner. After Christmas, I was looking over all of the patterns that I want to stitch this year that are already in my stash. I realized I needed some NPI silks and Drema had them at the old price and 20% off so I made the plunge. I also got the fabric for a Drawn Thread piece that I am going to start and the Waterlilies are for another sewing kit. It was a good stash weekend! Make me stop the insanity!

In other news, I did get my new health insurance and verified my dr appt in April so hopefully soon, all these problems will be taken care of.

If you quit spending it, why work? Why make it if we can't spend it?!?! Great stash stuff. I wish I had known about the sale on the NPI silks. I have plenty that I need.

Looks like you have a lot of good stuff there!
