Gini,

ear plugs won't work. They're telepathic.

Grace and Heidi welcome to the stashers and UFO ers club of America and we're just about all guilty!  Don't you just love it, partners in crime.

Kris is right.  Earplugs won't do a bit of good.  They fabric talks to us telepathicly.  And there is nothing we can do to keep from buying it once it asks to come home with us.

Becky,

I got it from my grandmother. My sisters too. Our mother didn't get it though. She's an odd ball. LOL

i think it must skip a generation.   my grandmother was very crafty, neither my mom or my two aunts have one ounce of artsy in them.  my daughter makes baby quilts, but she isn't "into" it.  anna and wil however both love to come doen to the studio with me      gini

i keep telling my self things will get better but some times i just dont know.

 

Adele, things will get better, they always do when you have faith.  I keep you in my prayers that your husband will soon get a job.  Keep thinking good thoughts and everything will turn out fine, you'll see.

I don't know about that Gini, My mother or grand mother neither one quilted. In fact my mother says ( I don't understand why you want to take a piece of fabric, cut it into a bunch of little pieces and sew it back together LOL.

Leslie,

my grandmother wasn't a quilter she was a seamstress. She always had tons of fabric. She taught me to make doll clothes then my own play clothes with scraps. My sisters love fabric but they're not quilters. One of them makes bags, another designs dresses in her spare time.

It's the love of fabric that connects us.

o boy, I hear u loud and clear - and others making good points about fabric collectors -  I am NOT a hoarder - hoarders are those that buy things and do not use them, ya c.  And I use mine.  But sorting and stacking take a lot of time and effort - not to mention the right square (color and size) for a particular pattern.   I just started cutting out the gazillion pieces for  'Gathering Baskets'  from American Patchwork, April 2001 - it was among my saved patterns.  It will keep me busy -  enjoy it!!!!!!!!

BTW:  I dont know where my love affair with fabric comes from - there is no one in my family who quilted or even sewed.  I have four daughters and two might take up the habit someday, but not now.  Two sons sew, however, and one makes his own costumes for halloween.  Go figure.

Kris, I'm thinking u might need some help.  ; )
