Biting the bullet

stashbusterssmallOkay, that’s it. Enough is enough. I was wandering around the Sew Mama Sew forum and found this stash buster challenge on WonderMommy’s blog. I’m going to do it. You heard it here. As I’m typing this, I’m watching horrible images of the earthquake in Haiti, worrying about our family and friends in the Dominican Republic and feeling guilty about my crazy fabric greed in the first place. So, I’m doing stash busters. And I’m making a peace quilt. I’m not sure for who yet, but I’m making a peace quilt as part of the stash buster plan.

The plan – just to say it out loud. No new fabric purchases between Feb. 1 and Apr. 1, 2010. Easy enough, right? Also, post pictures of completed projects on wondermommy’s flickr group. My additional plan – make a peace quilt – probably for the local women’s shelter.

Good plan! Break!

  1. I really like the idea of a Peace Quilt for a Women’s Shelter or to send to the poor. My experience is that it really makes many people’s day to receive something useful and pretty when life is harsh and buying something pretty isn’t an option. What a great idea!

  2. US Education says:

    Why do we say “heads up” when we actually duck?

  3. Good luck! I have quite a few full shopping carts on different fabric sites that I’m trying to ignore in favor of my overflowing stash, but I’m not sure how long I can hold out.

  4. I’m sure those online shops are sending you coupon codes to bring you back, too, right? Good luck! We can do it! But we don’t have to start until Feb. 1st *wink wink*
