    I am new to this sight and now all I want to do is quilt, quilt, quilt!
    I have looked as so many pictures of your beautiful quilts, clean rooms and great ideas and that is what I want to be...when I grow up! Whoops I am grown up! My kids are gone and the ex is as well and I have a totally new life to celebrate! A wonderful new man in my life and a beautiful golden retriver...Bailey...that we rescued in November from the pound.
    So, here is the addiction...I am now getting up an hour early running to get my coffee and sit to check this website and read all of the fun things. Then I go in and look at my stash and start putting things together. Kiss my bf good bye after he says what are you doing to day? I only teach three days a week now due to the economy...
    Then I am off..rotary cutter in one hand ... ipod on.. and iron heating up! Zip, zip, zip...sew, sew , sew ...PRess..YES another block done...up on the board for later use...again go...again go...and in between seams throw the ball for Bailey...
    Shoot its noon gotta get in the shower and get to the grocery store...OOPS! Grocery shopping? What did I need again? Oh that's right dinner for tonight.in the car with Bailey in tow to town we go..BRAKE!!!!!Quilt shop.....two hours later with a new stash and my mind going a mile a minute...home wash the fabric,,oh ok put a few shirts in while I am at it too.
    Back to the stash and repeat...4:00 bf is home.
    Hi honey what did you do today? UMM...should I tell him? Oops gotta iron...well I look good at least...I will throw a shirt in too..
    He says what's for dinner..oh um um Pizza!!!Quick call Pizza Hut they deliver right???
    Eat, Honey watch whatever you like, I say..I am just going to clean a little in the guest room...He snoozes...yes! Zip, zip, zip..
    10:00 bedtime...I toss, turn, toss, turn, he snores,so I sneak downstairs and sew just a little longer...2 am! OMG I have to get up in 4 hours and then I can start again..Sleep dream...wake up to thoughts of yellow and orange fabrics in my head...
    BF gets ready for work...I give him a kiss and am ready to start again but not before I watch him walk out the door with a plaid shirt on and imagine that in my next rag quilt...
    Life as a quilter.....it's a wonderful addiction!!!

    That is so funny, but oh so true. I think we have all been there and done that.

    My favorite thing about sewing late at night was in summer, when the windows were open. In August, the crickets were singing, and occasionally an owl called. There used to be a train that went through around 1 am, and the way the engineer blew the whistle at the crossroads was distinctive, unlike any other. It almost felt like a nightly greeting of sorts.

    Enjoy! These are the moments when life is very, very good.

    Oh my goodness, I do the same thing, except my hubby works around here at the house. He will come in to "inspect" what I am doing every so often, except I do spend the evenings with him watching TV.

    OMG what a great story! You are absolutely addicted to quilting now. Little does the BF know that he will soon get a solid colored shirt in place of the plaid shirt! :lol:
