    I'm at work right now - and on a break so sneaking a peak here. I started a new project last night and can't wait to get home to it! Made three blocks last night and went and stared lovingly at them before I went to bed AND took a peak before I left for work. While going about my work I am thinking of the layout of those blocks.

    Hello, my name is Jan, and I have a problem!

    Hi Jan
    I have a problem too. I'm at work sneaking peeks at patterns, mentally searching my stash for what I have and plotting what I'll need. I'm beginning to suspect I just work to buy fabric. Sigh. :lol:

    I first noticed I had a problem when I hurried home to intercept the mail for a squishy before my husband could get home and find it. And I'm the thrifty one who usually fusses at him about spending!

    "So, Jan, what is your problem?"

    Too funny! I started quilting this summer so am really new at this. I've noticed other signs of my addiction, but today is the first day I find myself craving my blocks.

    I'm reading a book set in the 1800's and the main character is 87 and a quilter. Her block is in her apron pocket to pull out as needed - complete with thread and needle of course. She says her stitches are the size of grains of rice. It's interesting to read of the lack of materials - including batting - and the steps it took to get a quilt finished. I do not long for the "good old days"!

    It's only a 'problem' if you perceive it that way(-;
    You're in good company, no matter what you call it!

    Hello, my name is Sherri and I share the same problem as Jan. I go to bed at night thinking about the blocks and quilts I want to make. And dream of yards and yards of flowing, cotton fabric!!!
