Embargo, one month down!

How did I do?  I made it 31 days!  I bought some fabric for the baby quilt, which was my one exception to the no buying pledge.  Oh, how sorely I was tempted while shopping for navy blue and green.  I could just get a fat quarter of this.  Nope, not for the baby quilt!  No can do!

I succeeded!  No fabric except the purchases I allowed myself for the baby quilt.  And some of the fabric I did buy, I bought with a gift certificate at one shop and a store credit at another.

I can't say it was easy.  I work at a quilt store, for Heaven's sake, and every time I go to work, there are more beauties to tempt me (Flower Sugar!  Text fabrics!)  But so far, so good!

Check back soon to see my progress on the baby quilt.

  1. You did GREAT!! I did not. The stripey sock yarn took me down in January. It's a new month though and I plan to do much better. :)
