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!
