    Thank you QuiltE. I just added your Dictionary & Acronyms to the list Craftybear posted a few months ago.

    Do you have the link to CraftyBear's?

    I think I have already consolidated her listing here, or on the one I am working on for the next update!
    Just in case, I'd like to check and make sure.

    I just keep adding, as new/different ones come along!

    Well QuiltE ... if your going to add non-quilting acronyms for those of us who are AC ... you need to add one of YOUR favorites which I see is missing from the list.

    ITL!!!

    I can't tell you how many times that one threw me.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I'm guessing ITL, is it's southern cousin?

    Hanging head in total SHAME!!! You KNOW I'm AC!! And yes - I saw HST and the *wrong* definition

    ahem ... let me try that again .....

    ITA !!! ITA!!! ITA!!!!!!!!


    (you might as well add ITL as well. It can be "I'm a total loser!")

    I sent a PM to the user. I'll let you know what she says.

    Perhaps ask the person who has used it ... and if you'd post the answer here, I'll add it to the list for updates.

    MUF = Masterpieces under fermentation.
    It is not a term created by me. I only adhered to the idea of Kelly's blog Charmen Chatter (http://cottoncharmquilts.typepad.com/) in January 2011. There she explained that it considers that everything that we have unfinished, pieces are masterpieces in fermentation until the day that we find you the "spin" that was needed give terminated.
    In this thread said that meant the acronym (2 Muf's finished: Christmas Table Runners for 2!) thinking that it had been clear, I hope I am sorry that not I kept repeating it.

    This is the reply I received from GVO9

    For those who are saying ... where is this list? ... here's a link!
    Quilter's Dictionary & Acronyms ... a consolidation of previous posts
    .

    Here's another one for the list. Learned it this weekend at a guild meeting: SABLE=stash accumulation beyond life expectancy. Fits me to a 'T'.
