Well, I have been off reading other peoples blogs today and having a great time with it. I have been as one blog is titled " manicuring my stash" I made a commitment not to buy fabric this year for anything unless I really had to. I have not done that very well, I must admit. I also read a blog on goals and other things too. I have four months this year to achieve my goals and for one of them I want to stop buying fabric unless completely necessary. I love what I do, but it can't be a business unless I am able to make a profit. To do that I have to be able to use what I have before I buy more. I do have plans for the Christmas craft show, and I may have to purchase a few things in order to finish some of them. Not many will need something and not a lot will be needed, but some. Then again I have so much fabric and so many embellishments that I doubt i should allow myself to purchase more. we shall see and I will let you my readers be my accountability. I may not be able to tell you exactly how much fabric I have used, but I can tell you an estimation.
As for blogging can be fun, I have seen many blogger's who do giveaways. I have signed up for lots of them, but never won. I have mentioned it before on my posts, and have been thinking about it a lot. What date will I use for my giveaway, what will I give, how will I choose from those who sign up. So I have made some decisions, as for how to decide who will win, I will put all names in a bag or bowl and have one of my family members pull one out. As for the date, I am looking at the anniversary of when I started my blog, a number of blogs written, or a day of the year that means something to me. Since I have passed my 100th post by 27, and I started my blog on March 16th of 2008, I will go with a date that means something to me. My oldest daughter was born on Sept. 27th and that will be the day I will choose to do my giveaway, so please watch for the next few weeks and see the things I will post as my giveaway. I will be choosing from things I have made as well as from my stash, so keep that date in mind and remember to post a comment on the 27th of September.
In the mean time please have a very quilty week.
