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  Smiley Or let me know if you want to swap.

Hi Brandy,
How have you done so far with your resolution. I'm glad I didn't make that one cause I never follow through. I always see and fall in love with new fabrics and then just don't get around to using the old stuff.

Thanks for asking. I am doing well. I have not bought any fabric since December 20th, but I have been given some fabric that I needed....some plains. I have completed 4 baby quilt tops & 1 entire quilt. I also have completed 1 Craftsrer swap & am working on 2 others Smiley
