    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 keep more vinegar in my laundry room than my kitchen.

    or

    Since I've become a quilter, I now refer to my sewing/scrapbooking room as my quilting room and can't remember the last time I did those other two hobbies.

    or

    Since I've become a quilter, all the painter's tape that our house contains is stored in the quilting room and if you need to "borrow" any, please put it on the shopping list. :lol:

    Since i became a quilter I think paying more than $4 a yard for fabric is fine.You would have never seen me pay 8 or 10 dollars a yard before quilting.

    Since I became a quilter I think its okay to have more than one project going at the same time. I was always a finish one project before staring another before.

    Since I became a quilter I think everyone needs a quilt no matter what their age is because how could anyone live without one.

    since I became a quilter having tons of fabric in the closet is a neccessity not hoarding.

    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!

    Since I became a quilter, my sanity is a lot better! I don't spend time worrying, I spend time hand quilting! Since I became a quilter, I am more relaxed. Since I became a quilter, I discovered a talent I never knew I had.

    since I've become a quilter, I enjoy letting my creative side out and creating unique quilted products for myself and others. Sewing was utilitarian, quilting is creative.

    Since I've become a quilter......

    There are places in my house where dust bunnies hold conventions.

    The restaurants close to me that have "carry out" available have become my new best friends.

    DH has learned to make "U" turns to go back to yard/garage sales if he spies a stack of fabric or quilt...all without being asked.

    A trip to town (45 mi. away) is not complete without a stop at the LQS.


    We never leave the house unless either DH or I have threads hanging off 1 or more parts of our bodies.

    DH has learned that a happy wifey makes for a happy DH :D:

    Since I have become a quilter, I have gotten to know so many other wonderful people on this board that I feel like I have a whole new community that I'm part of.

    Since I have become a quilter, the island in my kitchen is kept clutter free since I use it frequently to cut, sandwich, baste (not the turkey), etc. Just realized these activities SHOULD be done in the kitchen anyway.
