2007 Tally

During the year I put all my quilt related receipts in one place. Then I total them in January to see how much my quilt habit is costing me. It's also something of a reflection for me. The year I worked at a fabric store you'd think the total would've been sky high when in fact it was half what the year before had been. I guess having the whole quilt department to touch and admire kept me from having to own it.

This is not my stash
Total for 2006: $236.50. I think most of that was fabric for Big Blue.
2007: $147.18. I mostly bought thread, rotary blades, and fabrics to finish WIPs

Yesterday I made my first purchase of 2008, and with the 40% off one item coupon I got out of there for $23.54.
I have tubs and tubs of fabric, been collecting quilting cotton for 22 years. I don't need much and I figure - You can't take a U-Haul to heaven. :D

After reading your "confession" I won't even tally my 2007 buys!
