    I posted today on facebook that I was taking a break from cleaning and sewing all day long. Not one person "got it". I knew that if I posted here. EVERYBODY would "get it". I truly feel that we are a sisterhood, (sorry for the guys on here, you are definitely included) of quilters. And for those that have friends that are also quilters, I envy you. Except for my husband I really do not have anyone else that I can talk to without them looking at me like I have 2 heads, but I am not alone because I "talk" to you guys all the time. Thanks everybody, I love this forum.... :)

    They don't know what they're missing. I wish I could join you in your day of sewing.

    I understand, and you are right, we are a "quilterhood". There are some "quilters" in my area, most have made one or two in their lifetime and don't keep up with trends like our friends here do.

    Same here-mention sewing all day and my friends eyes glaze over. Mention the mall and they're all over it!!! Rather be here or in my sewing room thank you!

    I understand all of what you are saying. My DH thinks I have 2 heads too when I talk to him. I told him 1 day that if he wants me to listen to him talk about sports then he has to listen to me talk about quilts. You go ahead and take a day off, I wish I could but I'm too far behind.

    You certainly aren't the only one that feels this way! It's so nice to have a community of folks that really 'get' what you're saying - what would I do without this board and everybody on it!

    Put your feet up, get something warm to drink, and a
    good book. Cuddle under a quilt and spend a relaxing day.
    You deserve it! :thumbup:

    For the most part I dont have any quilting buddiess either. Recently a friend has decided she wants to make a quilt. So its nice to finally have someone. My aunt quilts but I rarely get to see or talk to her. Seen her last week at a funeral. She told me that when she passes I get everything in her sewing room because like me she knows no one else that sews. I wished she and I lived a little closer. Its about an hour drive for me. If I want to feel a "part" of a group I take a trip to a local fabric shop or here.

    I hear you loud and clear!!! Even my own sister doesn't get it and we are very close. However, she knows the joy I get and that makes her happy. She's a shopper and I'm a sewer.

    A couple of days ago I wasn't here and my son needed to sew something so he called my sis and was SHOCKED to find out she didn't have a sewing machine LOL

    I think my boys think every household has one :D

    I wish I could take a break and SEW All DAY for at least a week. My non-quilting friends at least admire what I do for the most part and most ask to see my newest projects. DH sort of understands my sewing habit - he's a retired technical engineer and love to tinker with his own projects. I have a group of friends from our quilt guild that gets together for quilting and "quilt talk" at least once a month - they are great about constructive criticism and helping each other out.

    My daughter in law got me started to quilt with gifts of a cutting mat and a rotary cutter - she is a working lady who is also a quilter with not much time to sew, consequently, I have you guys to talk with, as she is too busy...maybe some day she will retire to her sewing room !

    you know that's funny.. on my facebook page, I requested that someone lock me in my sewing room so that I had something to enjoy yesterday. It was a horrendous day, and today isn't looking much better..do you think the boss would let me bring my sewing machine and projects to work so that I can be happy?
