    Thanks for explaining these acronyms. However, I did have difficulty with one of them. When I told my husband I was going shopping for SEX, I got in a lot of trouble!

    [quote=Lockeb]I just a newsletter from one of the quilt shops where I like to visit..and they listed some new acronyms that I've never heard before...perhaps they are not as new for you - but I got a kick out of these...

    PIGS (projects in grocery sacks)
    SEX (stash enhancement exercise)
    SABLE (stash above and beyond life expectation)
    Ph.D. (projects half done

    And here's the link they gave for lots more...
