I would be foolish to think that I would be able to avoid purchases all year. I am just not sure what would be a reasonable goal. I really like fabric and especially scraps. To me, scraps are little presents of surprises. My friend and I were talking at Friday group - she says she will limit her purchases to just what she needs for finishing a project - and then her phone rang, and it was someone wanting get rid of scraps. She suggested bagging it and bringing it to the guild free table. We laughed at the irony of timing. We were silent for a few minutes and then I mentioned, I hadn't prepared to avoid that temptation. She said she was wondering what great stuff might be in the bags. Ha ha.
Maybe it's hopeless and we should just embrace our inner fabric hoarder. And I hope my Missouri star order comes before I have to count it next year.
