    I keep adding to my stash whenever I see something cheap and funky. I justify it by reminding myself that my mother is a superstar with the needle (sewing, quilting, knitting.. you name it!) and someday I will get the hang of it and make something beautiful out of all these scraps.

    I think it's finally time to start putting my stash to use.
    Oooohhhh yea! That's the start...first you buy fabric cause it is neat, then you pet it and stroke it, then you justify buying more and then you start looking for LQS's that just happen to be on the way when taking a trip, then you start finding patterns that would be "perfect for that piece of fabric"...and before long you will be quilting up a storm! So glad that you are here, cause it is the perfect place for help and tips and sharing the addiction! :thumbup:

    We dont "hoard' - we "build stash." (We are also delusional but won't admit that to ourselves.) :mrgreen:

    Oh I like that! I don't like using the word "hoard" because it implies negativity. When I'm going through my stash, of fabric and beads, it's a VERY positive experience!

    Congratulations and THANK YOU Konstantin! Teach that new bride to love quilting so the two of you can at least remain Quilting Board members.

    Whew -

    After a busy day of quilting and not being on the board I sit down to rest and catch up with the latest. Was NOT expecting my breath to be taken away with the title of 'A Farewell to Konstantin" and .... well, let's just say my heart sank until I read the whole story. I can't imagine this board not being here, so am sooooo glad that is not the case.

    Having said that --

    Congratulations to Konstantin and his bride to be! What wonderful news there.

    Patrice - so glad you are staying!

    And a very warm welcome to TaliaRose! I love your name! It sounds like the name of a beautiful quilt!

    Welcome TaliaRose and I wish you the very best here on the board. Wishing Gorilla Konstantin and his new bride many blessings and maybe you and she can drop in from time to time to say hello! PatriceJ, it is good to know that you will be helping with the transition and also keeping the position of Moderator. I just love this site and look forward for many more years of coming here.

    Parting is such sweet sorrow, but you're embarking on a wonderful new life and I wish you and Mrs. Gorilla a long and happy life together. Thanks for all you've done for us.

    A warm welcome to TaliaRose. As with all newcomers, I'm sure you'll find this a warm and cozy place to be and I wish you well.

    He's getting married? No way!! When did he have time to do that? I've ALWAYS seen him on here at the wee hours of the night/morning. Hmmm....I sure hope he takes care of Future Mrs. Gorilla!!

    Now TaliaRose....Be careful and watch out what others say/do. I'm the ONLY sane one here on this message board. It's true, I used to live on an big island and then moved to a much smaller one, but hey...not my fault. Something or other about a wife is supposed to follow her husband or something dumb like that. I listened and followed the man. He FINALLY brought me back to civilization where I have met some of the nice ladies of this board. Don't believe them if they try to tell you that I am crazy. I'm really not. I'm as sane as you are, but then again, you can't be all that sane if you are taking over this message board. hehe

    Anyway...A HUGE welcome to you and if you need anything, just ask and one more thing....I've got your back, as will some of the others.
    Oh, forgot...one more thing...Patrice is as crazy as I am! muhahahahaha!!!!

    I'm so new here, I don't even know who Konstantin is, but I still wish him and his new bride all the best for a happy, blessed future together! :D
    Talia Rose, I just love your name and your avatar. I also have two orange kitties who keep me smiling throughout the day. Welcome aboard!! :D
