I made a resolution, a goal, a pact, a rule, a code, a decree…call it what you will…but it went out the window yesterday in a moment of weakness…Oh I had been fighting it…for over a month now…but slowly ‘IT’ wore me down…
I’m talking about my VOW not to buy any more quilting magazines…(excluding Quiltmania, Simply Vintage and Primitive Quilts Magazine…of course!) I had been doing so well too…it had been well over a year since I had succumbed…maybe even TWO and then THEY did it! McCall’s put THIS on our Newsstand…oh I am such a sucker for a basket quilt…
Yes, I fought it out with this magazine…every week I would pick it up while at the check out at the grocery store…yes, I admit it…I was LUSTING over this quilt! And look, it’s called ‘Basket Dance’… which is what we were doing…dancing around this magazine! Yesterday it dawned on me…if this quilt was hanging in a quilt shop, I wouldn’t think twice about buying the PATTERN…so what’s the big deal?
So I bought it! There…I’ve said it! This magazine came home with me! I broke my rule…my sacred VOW to stop buying magazines!
But the good things about rules is, that they are MEANT to be broken…besides I am making a new rule…NO more magazines UNLESS there is a basket quilt on the cover! Oh, I feel so much better!
And besides…what can one little ol’ magazine hurt? :o)))
BUT, don’t you just LOVE this basket quilt…CARE TO DANCE?
Have a wicked Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P
