    Quilt acronyms

    As you know, as quilters we're pretty good at coming up with short set of letters to explain quilting terms - I mean, we've all got UFO's, right? And we happily use FQ's in our quilts or bags too.


    Try googling quilt acronyms, and you'll find some like these:
    (Not so familiar, but very clever)




    HSY Haven't Started Yet


    PHD Project Half Done (yes - we all have PHD's behind our names!!!)


    WIM Work In Mind


    WIVSP Work in Very Slow Progress


    TOAD Trashed Object Abandoned in Disgust


    PIG Project In Grocery bag


    USO Unstarted Object


    STASH Special Treasures All Secretly Hidden (!!!)


    SABLE Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy




    And my favourites...


    FART Fabric Acquisition Road Trip ( so can we call previous trips Old farts???)


    WOMBAT Waste Of Money Batting And Time
    Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use.
