Fabric Diet and PIGs

I went through my receipts for February last night: and boy have I bought a lot of fabric over the past four weeks (more than I have posted pictures of here - and there is more to come in the mail)! So I'm putting myself on the fabric diet for March! Let's see how this works out :o)

By the way: Does anyone know what PIG is short for? "Project in ..."?

Good luck with your fabric diet. As soon as I put myself on any kind of diet then I think I must have IT. LOL

Good luck with your diet. Can't do it myself, but I can root for you!! :) PIG could mean Purple Is Good, or Peach Isn't Gold, but probably not. :)

Pigs - stand for Projects in Grocery Sacks - which mean it is not yet a work in progress - just a collections of fabric and a pattern in a bag. (in Canada we don't have sacks - just bags - lol)
I had to ask Patti from "Quilting is my Passion" that very same question.
I have a few PIGS in my cupboard! :))

Ahem - um, Anne? Do not save fabric receipts. (giggle) If too many of us do that, then go on too many fabric diets, we could cripple the fabric industry in a matter of months! (snort snort!) Think of it - (LOL) thousands of hungry shop owners begging us to stop dieting! (ROFL)
hee hee -- good luck!

As you well know by now it is "projects in grocery sacks".

I tend to watch those fabric diets. The instant I decide not to buy fabric I find myself stocking up.

As to UFO's and WIPS, I struggled with that for some time. The only difference I see is that the WIP's are the ones you are actually working on and the UFO's are waiting in the wings.

Yes a PIG is a UFO that is not started yet!

I have certainly overloaded on material this last few months and I am not even game to find the dockets and ad them up. I have also had to buy material for a special quilt so on a fabric diet for a few months I think except if I need a couple of bits for my special quilt. Do like the materials you have got though.
