Hi! I am happy to introduce myself. I am Brandy & am from Minnesota. Yes, it's very cold here right now. It's a perfect day for crafting!
I have been using Craftster for about 3 years to find (free) tutorials, etc, but just joined this lovly community today since I am going to make my first New Year's resolution in several years. I need some support, please. My resolution is to not buy any fabric until I use up most of my stash by making 12 baby/kid quilts (and anything else I decide I "need"). This should take me atleast until July 1. I have a stash of decorator fabric from making bags & purses....I'm not sure what to do about that fabric. I may need to buy some fabric for backings, but will try my best not to....my dream is to trade with someone for the backings if I run out of large enough pieces or if I need anything further.
My 12 quilts will be donated to local charities. My #1 thought is to donate them to Bundles of Love, a local non-profit that gives baby supplies to a new baby whose family has little resources when that baby leaves the hospital. I also may donate them to a battered women's shelter that is only a couple miles from my house & I drive past often.
Feel free to say "hi" and encourage me along my path! I'd be happy to encourage you with any craft resolutions too Or let me know if you want to swap.
