    You know you're a quilter when you jump in the car to drive 35 miles one way to hit a sale of fabric 50% off and don't even think about the price of gas. Did that last Saturday and only bought 19 yards.

    don't pick on her. she was obviously having a slow day. poor kid. the rule of thumb in a case like that is approximately one yard per mile travelled or per percentage point of discount.

    isn't it?

    Most of the time I hate my tiny house...but not at the moment. I'm kinda glad that I don't have room for 5 yards let alone 19....I'm sure the checkbook is happy too.

    If you saw how much I have already. I've got fabric in the sewing room, so much i can't get in there any more. There is fabric stored in my son's room, the son that has moved out, fabric in the closet, fabric under the bed in the guest room and of course where my machine is set up.
    Nancy runs this sale every year around Memorial Day. This year is was a couple of weeks early because she has a graduation to go to.

    Maybe someday when all the kids move out....that inpires another one:

    You know youre a quilter when you map out and design your quilting room when the children move out....and they are only 3,4, and 5!!

    You know you are a quilter when: You get up in middle of night to go to bathroom and end up in your sewing room instead of back in bed.

    Yes, I saw that machine you are talking about, not something I would ever spend money on however. Was it called a felter?
