I am always so confused when I'm reading peoples comments about quilting anywhere and they use abbreviations. How do you find out what they stand for? I get so lost in conversations. I'm pretty new to quilting plus I'm not very computer savvy. Is there anyone that can help me figure this out please? Thanks alot!

If you have a printer just print them off so you can reference them while reading a thread and it's all right there so you won't have to go back and forth on the computer.

The one I get a kick out of is DH.

If you are happy with him it could mean Dear Husband, if you are not happy it could mean something else!

There's one that's not listed on there that confuses me. I know what the last part is but not the first and that's
ROT(something)lmao. I know what the lmao is I just don't know what the first part means. Then again, maybe it's something I don't need to know.
