    A wise man said...

    I have to share this. I was in Joann's at the cutting table, and the woman in front of me and the woman behind me both admired a floral flannel I had in my cart, which I'd found on the half-off red tag table. I said I really liked the fabric, too, but that I didn't need it, I just wanted it.

    The first woman said, "My father used to say, 'If you want something that bad, then you need it.' He was a good man."

    "Yes, he was," I said, and the woman behind me agreed as well.

    I hope his wife was a quilter. A man with an attitude like that shouldn't be wasted!

    I wish I could get my husband to think that way.
    "Be yourself...everyone else is taken."
    Strong people don't put others down...they build them up."
    "Remember that your instincts are more important than rules"

    My husband feels that way too.

    Right now I *need* a HQ16 and he *needs* a BMW Z3.


    Will see who wins first
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    How wise of him. It is a real pick me up to get something you want.

    Then there are DHs like mine who follow me into a quilt shop and "finds" things unlike anything I have and insists I buy them. What bums me is, after protesting and then buying, I find a use for them right away! He just says, "I knew you needed that!" Need I add that the quilt store ladies love to see him come in.

    DH and I are at the time of our lives that we don't need anything. All our buys are wants.
    Got fabric?

    Is that way of thinking possibly a cousin to what I call "retail therapy"? :-) That is my favorite kind of therapy, and it is much cheaper and more fun...well, most of the time it's cheaper! LOL
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
