Since I've become a quilter, so many things have changed in our house. :D I thought it might be nice to know that I'm not the only one (my DH seems to think I am sometimes :lol:) so I decided to create this thread to see what has changed at your house....like.....

Since I've become a quilter...I will pay more for a yard of fabric than I would a nice top or piece of clothing! I will go 25 miles out of my way to go to a quilt shop... I will work in my sewing room from 8-2 then hurry & make the bed & throw something on the stove & do dishes to make it look like I've done something for the day! I will also solve some of my 'quilting problems' at 2 a.m. when all is quiet & I can think uninterrupted! And since I've become a quilter I have met some of the greatest people I could have ever dreamed of meeting! Quilters are the bestest!
What more can I say than has already been said!:)
