Then there's that other wicked phrase that's been drilled into us, "Buy what you love." Yikes! That's some dangerous advice. However, I probably give into that philosophy more often than I obey my own philosophy.
I've had to apply the "use it?" rule to my sewing over the years. I don't know if anyone else suffers from this ailment but sometimes I over-spend by over-creating.

I took what I knew I needed and threw in a favorite Southern phrase I read about in Creole Thrift...
Well, it's true!!!
