    You need to "train" your DH like I did mine... he thinks EVEYBODY has a whole basement full of fabric & UFO's & that it's just how it is for quilters... LOL! Keep my secret for me, OK?

    Welcome Dawn. I have three Staple boxes full of different sampled material from all over the world plus two plastic crates and two smaller boxes. This is not counting the material by the yard, fat quarters etc I bought from Connecting Threads. I just started sewing from the sample material a table cloth for my kitchen table. Will post a picture when I'm done. Some times I don't what direction to go but, it's funnnnnnnn!!!

    No, no! It wasn't like that! I only stopped there, for something for DH . . . (which I almost forgot) . . . and was just passing by the fabric department and there was this beautiful fabric, about to be discontinued . . . and if I didn't get it then, it'd be gone forever . . . and it was some I'd almost bought, several times before . . . and . . . and . . . it was crying out to me, I SWEAR!!! I HAD TO SAVE IT! I NEEDED - I mean IT needed ME! Yeah, that's it! That's what happened! Then there was another piece and I couldn't very well take one and not the other . . . and . . . then there was . . . .

    Oh, I see. No, you're right... you COULDN'T leave that other fabric behind... it would be like leaving a buddy behind & that would never do! Plus it's feelings would be hurt. So I understand completely. Of course, my sudden understanding could (just maybe) have to do with the fact that I just got my own fix... I mean placed an order for the daily deal over at MO Star. I was afraid if my credit card cooled down too much, it might never start back up again. And that's my story & yes, I plan to stick to it!

    "Daily deal" over at MO Star? Oh, that sounds very important! You're right about the credit card cool-down. Many cards will expire, if you don't use them every so-often, so it's important to keep them active, in case of emergency. You were VERY wise, to keep it active.

    Now, about that daily deal . . . may have to go check out what's going on, there. Just window-shopping, of course, as I haven't yet finished washing my last fix . . . I mean rescue.

    I'm worried about one of my other credit cards going dead, too, so I may "help" it by buying today's deal, too. Hey... somebody has to do something to get this economy moving! It's my patriotic duty!

    Is this also where we talk about our vintage machine collection and the thread collection or are those different groups? Just wanted to say, you are not alone with your collection of fabric.

    Well, I was naughty again today. I came across some vintage, cotton dresses. I took one look at the charming cotton print, and that was all she wrote. I get my fix just about anywhere these days!

    Do I start with my variegated collection or the solids? Smaller spools or large cones? Or do you all want to hear about my vintage thread collection in jars that I use as decorations? Just where does a girl start with the thread? Perhaps the latest obsession with Aurifil?

    I'm not Rebecca but I'm sure she'd agree with me, on this. NO time limit. Just keep the thread/fabric stories coming!

    You can tell us about all of the thread you want to. That bug has not hit me yet. I am pretty much a black and white thread person unless it if for something really special. It is all the same. It is pretty and shiny, and therefore we must take it home with us like a lost puppy.....

    Hello, my name is Marie. I am a fabriholic!
    Wait a second, if we join this group, does it mean that we are putting together a 12 step program to quit fabric????

    Not a chance in this world, girlfriend! We're all addicts here & fiercely proud of it! LOL! The only 12 steps we care about here are the ones that lead us into a quilt shop!
