    Yes, I will absolutely still quilt. I am on a mission this year to use 90% from my stash anyways, so unless it's a fabric I absolutely need to complete a project, the rising costs won't bother me.

    I am also counting my blessings we're in a financial positon now that both DH and I can "indulge" our hobbies a little more than we have in the past..and his playing golf ain't cheap, LOL.

    Of course! I don't stop eating because the cost of food goes up :roll: :lol:
    This is exactly what I was going to say. Too funny.

    I also will continue to quilt. I have a stash, but not that extensive. We can resort to the ways of the frontier men and women. Recycle, reuse, repurpose. I will be making quilts out of whatever I can get my hands on. Isn't that how it all started anyway? Necessity is the Mother of invention. Where there's a will, there's a way.

    I definately will.I have MS and my doctor said that quilting probably has a big part in keeping the muscles in my hands and legs from drawing up. So that's health-wise. Brain-wise,quilting gives me something to focus on daily. I can't work anymore,so without quilting my mind would just be occupied with what I couldn't do . Then there's money-wise. Making and selling quilts is what provides birthdays,Christmas,and most important home insurance, home repair, and furnture replacement as it is needed.

To many sales, clearances, E-Bay, we exchange among each other here and on other sights to shop so...Nahhhh I'm good. I need to lose weight anyway! I'll drop my A&W and Tea and stick with water! HA! :D :mrgreen:
    My daughter says that now I have given her another addiction.She smokes(nasty habit),has to have her pepsi in the fridge,and now whenever she's in a store that has fabric she goes to look and ends up buying fabric to bring home to me. Her husband just smiles and shakes his head.He told me he's just getting used to it since my 4 year old granddaughter sits on the floor with fabric peices I gave her and makes block patterns out of them.He does encourage my daughter to come to my house and help me cause I can't be around smoke. That way she doesn't smoke very much.

    Yes, but maybe as my stash goes down, I'll try patterns that take longer!

    Yes it is my therapy and my passion being around beautiful fabrics is so much fun and looking for that perfect piece of fabric is like being on a treasure hunt.
