    It's amazing as to the kind of trouble that you can get in to because of this board and all the ideas that there is. I have had to stop buying fabric because I need car parts and it is so hard. I went to Walmart today and I told DH I just need to look and touch the fabric's and then went on my way.

    I would not call it trouble -- just sweet inspiration! Even DH is impressed! But you have made it so impossible for me to keep up with the projects I want to do....purses, aprons, bargello quilts, the list is ever expanding thanks to you all! I am a better quilter by allowing all of you to stretch my imagination and test my abilities! Thanks so much!

    What I really need is a cook, housekeeper, and gardner, so I can design blocks, piece, and quilt. Somewhere between all my quilting I would take some time to fabric shop and shop for a longarm. Sigh, too many quilts--too little time.

    I'm with you. I can't get around to everything I need to do, so my quilting has to be set aside.

    Oh, I agree with you 100%. Since I have been on this board I have spent a fortune. Not only the fabric, patterns and notions, but because of Lostn51 and all of the people showing their wonderful machines, I have started collecting Vintage Sewing Machines, Yeah, Billy, I'm talking about you. Thank you!

    But to be honest, this board is the best! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I have learned so much and met so many nice people. This board has changed my life, which may end sooner if I bring another machine into this house! LOL! :)

    My granddaughter just doesn't understand all of the machines, she just says "Another one!" LOL.

    At my house it is, "Jim I have ideas for more quilts than I can make". And the response is "Whatever my little girl wants."

    Stick with us, girl, and one of these days Wes will come home and you'll be saying "Wes, is that you?" He'll answer, "Yes, which pile of fabric are you behind this time?"

    Totally agree. I keep saying to myself..."No more fabric until the stash shrinks" and what did I do today stop in a LQS and bought some more fabric....It was just too pretty to pass up.

    YOur right! I keep getting in deeper and deeper and deeper!Last week my DH agreed to bring my little garage sell find home for me,like I needed another one, I wasnt even looking. Couldn't believe he was willing to haul another vintage machine when I already have a sewing room full of machines. Sometime I am going to have to make something! Really!
