A CC/Stitchy reward

I had an idea to get myself to pay off two of my credit cards, sort of a reward and an enticement. I have two cards with a combined balance of $1500--I blame these balances on Christmas last year, and living in an 80 year old house (whoda thunk Lowe's was pretty darn close to being the happiest place on earth, like Walmart with all the clothes and toys removed?). Granted these are not my biggest cards, but I think if I pay them off, that would go a long way, and I could put the combined payments on my car payment. (which now that I say this is doable, I will never do. Just being honest here.)

Anyway, I was surfing on Friday and I realized that I would like to join Silkweavers FOTM club. But I can't justify spending $40 a month on fabric when I have these two cards out there with balances that I could be done with if I just stopped buying useless JUNK. It's not that I can't afford the $40, but it's a guilt thing. So maybe if I post it here, it will keep me responsible. But once I get those paid off I can afford the $40, especially once I pay that car off!

Glad to hear that you found your "meow" fabric. We didn't get over to the Nemo Parkway Walmart to see if they had it.
Went to the quilters store today and they helped me choose fabric for your wall hanging. Think you'll be happy with our choices. Keep your fingers crossed that I get it done and to you by August 9th. Also, because I have the same disease that you and your mother have, picked up a embroidery/quilt kit for a 4th of July pillow and two kits for some Halloween kitchen towels (the ribbon on the towels was incredibly whimsical and they should be easy to complete). I told the lady that helped me that I was adding both items to my "hope I get it done before I die" stash. Glad to hear that you and your mom had a great "memory day." Later.

I'm always tempted to join that FOTM club too, but the guilt stops me in my tracks ;)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
