What have I done???

Hi, my name is Gene and I need a 12 step program.  You see, I am a fabricaholic. I got lost (not exactly lost, I knew where I was and that I shouldn't be there)  on the internet and landed on Connecting Threads.  I had just deposited the $$ from the baby quilt commission and lost control. 
I wandered through the clearance fabrics and found a cart full of goodies. 
I mean, how could I resist?  The leaf print fabrics on the right of the picture were in the "seconds" section.  It said "Rows of leaves slope crooked on one side of the selvage. " I have unfolded each of the colors, I can't find a problem. I also ordered some of the Essential Thread in my "go to" cream color. The spools on both machines were getting low and I have quilt making to do. 
I feel slightly guilty about buying more fabric, but then I just looked and I have 17 yards of fabric in that pile. I also got a 5000 yard cone of thread and two 1200 yard spools. All of that - under sixty dollars.  
Okay, now I feel like a smart shopper! 


I see some of this having a good chance at ending up in the quilt I am working on now...just saying!

Nothing to feel guilty about - just think about all that money you saved and can spend on MORE fabric!!!

It's dangerous to be on the computer at times! =) I have to be on guard....or the fabric bug can attack...thankfully, the money is not there...so I'm usually good. Love your finds!

Well I say that is a deal and when you are looking for something specific you can never find it so get it while the getting is good.

I love shopping the clearance aisle at Connecting Threads! I seem to always have a running cart on their website. I use their thread for all of my quilting too! You bought some beautiful fabrics!!

You are too funny. I admire the fact you stopped at only $60! My shopping sprees regularly go far beyond that amount. LOL
