    my DH gives me 'that look'.....you know the one where he's smiling only with his mouth, but his eyebrows have gone way back into his (thinning) hairline as if to say 'today might be the day you go in there and I won't ever be able to find you again'!!

    Nothing wrong with dust bunnies on a quilt! Especially if it is an Easter quilt! And dust bunnies give quilts movement! And dimension!

    (I am in denial about the whole cleaning thing.)

    If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted I wish I had some ice cream.

    You have to walk in your sewing room with protective head gear in case of a fabric avalanche..

    I've lost the 3 Chihuahua's! Or when I can't find my straight pins. (I eventually found them, in my bedroom! where I was working on my pillow cases.)

    Which reminds me, thank you to the person who gave the you tube address for the simple way to make pillow cases. I have made 8 so far and I love them. Giving most of them away. They also make great replacement covers for the dog pillows!

    Is there a doctor in the house? I just got bit by the quilting bug!

    There are fiber artists that use dryer lint .... so now you are officially a fiber artist ... CONGRATS! LOL. Can't say I've sewn a dust bunny into a quilt, but I have quilted dog hair (ooops!)

    I clean when the 6 feet of office/computer table extends into the 6 feet of sewing table space or vice versa.

    Yep that's where I'm at right now!! The "to wash load" of new fabric that is, has begun to get almost as high as my cutting table!!

    ...when I can no longer remember if I have carpet or hardwood in my studio. Seriously.
    ...when I don't have enough pins left on my magnetic dish to load a baby quilt onto my frame. Really.
    ...when my kids or DH won't come hang out with me because there is no place to even stand in there, much less sit. LOL

    Ha, Ha. My DH has told me he's worried he will come home to find me buried underneath a pile of my "necessities".
