    It's just such a nice addiction to have. You're doing something creative, productive, useful, beautiful and all kinds of other lovely adjectives. Just think, you could have become addicted to gambling, or other such nonsense. This is something wonderful that will add creativity, growth and meaning to any potentially empty spaces in your life, and you will leave behind you beautiful quilts and similar things that people will love and enjoy. Just think of the good you can do! But remember, you have to tear yourself away from giving long enough to make yourself a quilt. Not that I've done that myself yet, but I am "intending to do it" very soon. Possibly this year. If I don't end up giving it away. The last time I made myself a quilt, my sister saw it, fell in love with it, and, well, the rest is history. But I will make myself a quilt and keep it. As soon as I get the rest done. . .

    Quilting is a wonderful club full of wonderful people. You'll love it here!

    Yes! Welcome to the addicting world of quilting. I have tendonitis/tendonosis in both wrists & hands from quilting to much. I still can't quit. Wear my braces at night...quilt as much as I can in the day. So many quilts, so little time! I really am sure I live long enough to make all the quilts I have planned. LOL On the days my hands are really bad I have to take a break. It is terrible! I pace, fidget, complain, etc. Yep! It is an addiction. Oh, and I can't go to a store that has fabric without heading straight for that dept. before I do anything else. I am wondering who to will my stash to. LOL
