    Lqs means local quilt store. Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it all.

    Hi char, nice to meet you. Yeah, some of them aren't rebuilding because of insurance problems.

    We kind of thought that. Hard to buy insurance when times are tough.

    Well, I had resolved to use up some of my stash in '10, but then I heard Wally World in W'chester was selling out of their fabric, and I could not resist the urge. So,...while I was there, I got two more empty tubs. And 2 pkg. of York Peppermint patties. Guess I'm set for a while.

    I've only been back to quilting for about 2 years. I started collecting fabric here and there and didn't think I had any solids. Well, they must have something going, as when I sorted all my fabric, I had 2 (old deep freezer basket) full of solids. I have gone to using up my stash, even it doesn't EXACTLY match. I'll never get sewn up all I have now. It is 60 miles to a decent fabric store. I'm 68 years old and do not like to drive that far by myself anymore. Silvia

    Well, this one really reminded me why it's best not to read with a mouthful of coffee!
    Truth be told, those large tubs do help hold the floor down under normal conditions...and in major windstorms the added weight may keep the house on its foundation! ROFLMBO
    Ditto! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I have already admitted I have an addiction. It is a real hungry sort so I have to feed it often. As far as doing something about it, I do. I sew every day and shop as often as possible.

    I confess to having lots in my stash, about 10 tubs worth plus a dresser, and still I buy both online and in shops. It's an obsession/addiction but I don't care. It's mine and I enjoy it. When I sorted my stash, I found so much I had forgotten I had even some "ugly" fabric that I's purchased twice plus some beautiful fabric that i ahd 3 different sixes of cuts in - my DD shook her head over the 3 different pieces of it. I even found stash fabric in my Xstitch stuff and in my pj drawer. Life goes on and so does fabric acquisition. :)

    That sound like a good trade. Can't seem to sew without those pep patties. Oh well, one addiction deserves another.

    I don't see that you have a problem. If you decide to adopt out some of these beautiful things, my house can always use more.

    nice to knowI'm not alone. My other problem is that I am a "Jill of many trades, master of none". Sound familiar? At age 73 I don't expect to change any time soon. Sew many crafts sew little time! Sew little storage space. Moved 6 years ago to a ranch home with 6 rooms. We left a home with 12 rooms. Dumb!!!

    O.K. Jill - you are speaking my language, besides traditional quilts and related runners, etc, - I am into Art Quilts ) esp. batiks, threads, embellishments, paints, beads, etc.), crazy quilts (non cotton fabrics), Purses and totes (asian fabrics and more non cottons), needle felting (wool, polar fleece, wool roving, yarns angelina fibers, etc,), needle punch (thread flosses, perle cottons, weaver's cloth, etc.), penny rug type stuff (wool fabrics, more threads, etc),

    Its all very comforting that there is something for my every mood I am in, lol.

    Any other multicrafters want to share their dilemmas?

    I also have tried just about every craft out there. I have finally settled into my quilting and rosemaling. I have recycled craft magazines, given mega yarn away for charitable projects & hauled away to Salvation Army & Goodwill. I plan to use a lot of my fabric for small quilts for a place called Liberty House. It is a local organization where abused children are taken to be evaluated. Sadly we took our granddaughter there because of a step-father. They are wonderful people. I also belong to the DAR and I make book covers for the ladies and lap quilts for veterans. So much fabric, so little time!
