1. At least it wasn’t yarn!
    I’ve been looking at the chisel die, but I don’t think I’d use it often enough to justify buying it. Definitely some triangular dies though….

  2. Well, I don’t see a problem!

    Accuquilt dies ON SALE are perfectly legit purchases and not even in the textile category, ha!

  3. One more comment. I too am in the ” NO more fabric until I make a dent in my stash” category.

    Alas, I found beautiful Valori Wells FQ bundles on sale. So I bought it in 3 different colorways. Sigh.

  4. I had to laugh — your story is universal, Mary! There are several dies I’d love to have, but the price is always more than I want to spend. The alphabet dies, especially, call to me, but they are SO pricey!

  5. After you wrote about the kite die and showed the picture from eBay, I ordered the die. Don’t know when I’ll get to it. I have a box of 1930 repros to use with my double wedding ring die too. And I also bought the triangle dies you recommended. Thanks.

  6. I caved on the Bow Tie die — it was too good a deal to pass up as a two die set. I’m hoping that the 1-1/2″ F HST die that it comes with will be useful when Bonnie Hunter does her mystery quilt in the Fall! I too am waiting on a good deal on the lowercase letter dies.

  7. Hi Mary! You stuck with your words – a die isn’t anywhere near yarn. Different crafting categories altogether. In my book, you kept your word. Enjoy the die! ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. It is so hard to pass up a good sale, and you have been wanting that. Sounds like a good deal to me! Have fun with those cute grandkids. They grow so fast, enjoy them every chance you get. And it looks like you cherish every minute.

  9. Glad to hear that I am not alone. I am always picking up so crafting item even though it takes me a while to use or figure out what I needed it for.

  10. I’m sure I looked at that die but I went for the new appliqué die with embroidery called Sea Life. (And, darn, it wasn’t even on sale.) I’ve been making kits for smaller quilts recently and have been giving the Go a good workout. I love when I have all the dies I need but I don’t rush out and buy a lot. I need to use 3 or 4 that I’ve bought and never used. Sigh.
