    A quilting friend of mine recently went into our lqs and making small talk, asked the owner how business has been going (our area has a super high unemployment rate). The owner stopped and looked at my friend and said "I deal with women that have an addiction". 'Nuff said.

    So is that why I obsessively check the classifieds here even though I don't need anything and can't afford to buy more fabric?! :shock:

    :-( One of the fabric stores I go to is closing in December. (No LQS where I live) They are closing because there are not enough addicts in that town. The young lady said she was going to be unemployed and is currently looking for a job. She also said she was lucky she had this job because her Mom owns the store.

    I am always looking for someone who just wants to give their fabric up for a low price, not everyone loves fabric as much as others. Its hard for me to walk out of any store without at least a small piece of it! It may be an addiction but its a great one!

    I think you need to be coveting your neighbor's fabric to break a commandment. Just lusting over it in general is permissible, I think. ;)

    I covet my neighbor's fabric, then I buy more. I lust after fabrics, then I buy more. Guess I haven't broken any commandments ... I just resolve the issue before anyone realizes. :D :D

    Conversation with my therapist last week. (True story):

    Dr: What have you done for Pat recently?
    me: Nothing that I can think of.
    Dr: What do you enjoy doing ?
    me: Sewing or Quilting.
    Dr: You use needles, thread, and fabric for that ?
    me: Yes ....
    Dr: Go buy FABRIC !!!! Would that be considered something for yourself?
    me: (with a LARGE grin) Yup!

    I couldn't contain myself and burst out laughing .... I explained why .... that everyone tells me I won't need fabric until the next lifetime or sometime thereafter. He said "That's not true. My wife enjoys fabric too .... and she NEVER has enough. We're always looking for the elusive piece of cloth."

    Sooooo .... Doctor's orders .... I must go shopping. My daughter wants my doctor's name and address ..... and the waitress at the restaurant today told me that fabric shopping may be covered by my health insurance!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: If only .....
