    Are you a fabriholic?

    I knew the answer before I even took this test, but for those of you who aren't sure --->

    I am not ashamed to say that the only thing I don't do is blog about the fabrics I have found. Usually by the time I find it, everyone has already had a taste of it in their stash. Or gone to the local LQS and touched it already.

    " Hmmm, your fabric gene needs some nurturing"

    The above response was my answer (3 "right" out of ten). Cute quiz, but hardly "accurate" as is evidenced by my ever growing stash. Honestly ... what is wrong with immediately washing my fabric when I get home, or wanting another bath in my next house (current house has ONE - I can "make" a sewing room a whole lot easier than I can "make" a bathroom), and I have never purchased fabric that is "too pretty to cut" - I bought it to cut!!

    But it was a fun quiz

    Thanks for sharing ... even if I "failed".

    Wait. I wonder if my failure means that I NEED to buy more fabric? YEAH!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Wel....90% is pretty close to perfect isn't it. I have n idea what the others will do the piles and piles of fabric, fat quarters,oh yes, and piles of scrapes to use. Right now I am enjoying all the fabric.

    I got 9 out of 10. Could have guessed that without the quiz. I think bring home over 2000 yards qualifies. LOL

    Wahoo!!! I'm only a fabriholic in training .... there's still learning for me. That means I don't have to de-stash! and I'm not a fabric hoarder as some of my neighbors hint!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I got 8 out of 10 correct, but if you could see my sewing storage room there would be no doubt that I am a HUGE Fabriholic.
