Thing 1 - do not buy magazines.
I haven't bought a single magazine this month. I feel very proud of myself for managing to resist because those sneaky magazine marketing people always make magazines looks so interesting. For the first couple of shopping trips I confess I did look at some of the mags in the magazine aisle but I didn't buy any of them. Now I just walk right past the aisle - I don't even allow myself to look!
January Result: Thing 1 done. ★
Thing 2 - use what I have.
I have been really good at this one. I've made several pinnies, a shopping bag and a cover for a dog cushion all out of "stock". (I know there are several other things but I can't think of them right now.) The only fabric I bought was the owl fabric which I have made into pinnies for the tartan bee shops - links are in the right column.

Thing 3 - I'm going to do the "52 weeks of happy" thing.
I have been doing this too. You can catch up on all my "52 weeks of happy" posts so far here . I try to do the posts on a Monday but life does tend to get in the way some days so I'm just doing them as close as I can to a Monday and being happy about it.

And because it doesn't feel right to not show a photo, let me show you the hat I was working on. Do you think I kept it or did I rip it down? Mmmmm. I wonder?? :oD
