Thing 1 - do not buy magazines.
I've managed to do this thing in February mainly because I don't allow myself to go down the magazine aisles when I go shopping. I have picked up a couple of free magazines in the supermarket but, to be honest, most of them are, in my humble opinion, just a waste of paper.
February Result: Thing 1 done. ★
Thing 2 - use what I have.
I did buy this text fabric but I have now used some of it to make this pincushion so it's not as if I've bought it and piled it in the piles not to be seen for years. (Does it sound like I'm trying to justify that purchase?? :oD) Other than that, I bought some fabric from a sale roll in my local shop and have already listed 2 pinnies made from it in the tartan bee shop which is allowable according to my "rules".
February Result: Thing 2 (sort of) done. ★
Thing 3 - I'm going to do the "52 weeks of happy" thing.
I have been keeping up with this. You can catch up on all my "52 weeks of happy" posts so far in the page tab at the top of the blog.

And for this month's funny photo - here's Molly caught in mid-shake after she'd been digging in the garden. She really needs to learn to stop doing that - the digging, not the shaking!
