Hello. My Name is Bonnie. And I haven't bought a pattern in two days.

Yes, we all talk about buying too much yarn... buying too much fabric... buying too many patterns. I am definitely guilty of all of the above. I fell off the pattern wagon this past weekend and I wasn't going to admit it until I kept reading about all the other pattern-obsessed bloggers who also succumbed to the Hancock and JoAnn Memorial Day sales. So here is my damage:

Butteick: McCalls: New Look: Simplicity: Vogue:
5206 5522 6806 2927 8480
2326 2213 6799 3523 8470
5187

3711 2907

So I have to ask... Who else fell off the wagon?

I bought a couple of Vogues and Butterick - I was looking for coat patterns. Now if I'd just decide on the fabric and order it already!

Oh my - that IS a lot of patterns. I can honestly say I didn't buy any yarn, fabric or patterns this weekend! But a LYS is going out of biz and everything is 30% off - I can hear it calling me! Check out my blog - I tagged you!

Fell off the wagon and down the Grand Canyon. I have a pattern obsession that definitely *needs* a 12 or 24 step program. ;o) I do think I'm good for now...until the late summer patterns are released for Fall. But then there are always more independant companies if I need a fix. ;o)

Gosh, I think I bought over 20 patterns at Joann's over the weekend. Don't ask how many I boutht the previous week.

Since I don't sew, my purchases are knitting related. I can't even say 2 days. I'd have to say, "Hello, my name is Nancy and I haven't bought any yarn or knitting patterns today. ;)

Ooooooops!
I need to switch my answer from 4-6, to 7-10, and if I'd known JoAnns had Simplicity on sale, it'd probably be more than 10!

Well, I don't buy patterns, cause I don't sew. But I am a cross-stitch chart aholic! I have 45 or 50 projects started, and went out and bought more yesterday - LOL!

Oh, I couldn't wait for the stores to open up. I bought six patterns. If you have a Hancock Fabrics nearby, they will be having a $0.99 sale on McCall patterns from June 12th through June 15th. Can't wait for that one either.

Sometimes I feel so guilty because I spend way too much time shopping patterns and fabric! My vote is in. I bought eleven.
