LOL -- I think most of us would pick the quilt (or anything else that has to do with quilts)!!

And if you can still wear the same clothes after 4 years -- Woohoo! (I'm thinking weight gain here). And think of all that extra money you had for fabric. Think the clothes will make it 6 or 7 years????

Glad I'm not the only one!!!

I am retired and shop resale shops for my kahkis, but go to quilt shops for my fabric! Got my priorities straight! :D

You know you're a quilter when....

you and a friend go to second-hand stores and she's looking for things to wear and you're looking for things to cut up. :wink:

there's nothing in the fridge but the freezer is full of microwave meals :wink:

every outfit you wear is embellished by little snippits of thread :wink:

you can talk about 'fat quarters' and not care if somebody might think you're referring to a body part :wink:

HAHA. I was just thinking this week that when DH puts that shirt aside, I won't bring it to Goodwill. I'll cut it up. Oh, my I didn't realize how we quilters all think alike until I read the last few posts. Yep, we need to start having meetings. How many steps will we have to follow? :lol:

when you notice as you are going out the door that your DH is covered in thread snippets.. :oops:

You know when you have had enough coffee while quilting if you can thread the machine while it is running.
