    P.i.g.s

    On the quilt show this morning, Eleanor Burns mentioned another acronym that I'd not heard before.

    P.I.G.S------------projects in grocery bags!

    Mine are in shoe boxes, but they are PIGS.

    I'm really good about not having PIGS,but I'm good for FARTS. For some reason I'm disciplined enough to not start a project when I'm in the middle of one, but I just can't stop buying fabric.. Thank God I'm not buing big quantities but it still adds up.

    I've got to say I definitely have a lot of pigs in my house and have farted several times in the last few months what with shop hop and the anniversary sale at one of the LQS as well as the Sewing and Quilting Expo that was just in town. Should change my name to QuilterwhoneedsBeano LOL

    I have many boars, sows, and piglets (depending on the size of the project) in my house also. As a matter of fact pulled one of those piglets out today. Gave her a good look and very gently put her back in the bag!

    I stuff mine in those plastic hanging shoe storage thingies, have one half full and other one is full. I sit there some times and look at them, try to think what kind of layout I had planned. Yes, do get some of them done. Have a small basket though with baby quilts for hospital that gets emptied first although it gets refilled just as fast. I found a large picture at St. Vincent few weeks ago. Cut most of the picture out and wrapped remaining material around frame and stapled. Just the right size for pinning baby quilts to and tieing them off. Can set it on my quilt stands or have one end on desk and other on my lap. About 45" long and maybe 35" wide. Works great, easier than getting out the side boards for the large quilting racks just to do a small one. Now if you will excuse me, I hear some oinking in the dungeon.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    Lori, thank you for the laugh this morning. Love your (FART) Fabric Aquiring Road Trip, I'll have to remember this one for the next time I go sewing.
