    Saw this sign on the wall at my LQS today. I think I might be infectious!

    **WARNING** Quilt Pox

    Very Contagious to Adults


    Symptoms: Continual complaint as to need for snuggling under a handmade quilt. Patient has blank expression, sometimes deaf to spouse, kids, and friends. Has no taste for bedspreads or electric blankets. Hangs out at Quilting Bees. Mumbles to self: "Log Cabin, Double Wedding Ring, Ohio Rose...Need Fat Quarters."


    NO KNOWN CURE


    Treatment: Medication is useless; disease is not fatal. Victim should attend as many Quilt Shows and visit as many Quilt Shops as possible.



    I don't know about you, but I think, I might take the cure. :D

    If a vaccine is made, I refuse to take it.

    I saw a thread where someone had posted their quilting space. It's an amazing old church turned into a studio. We should decend on her! I bet she's got all the amenities and it looks like there's plenty of room. Why, I bet there's even a back room for those who are silly enough to want to get some sleep. :lol:

    I had to send this to my quilting buddies. They loved it and had quite the good laugh. I'm sure we'll be telling everyone we have "Sable" and it's uncurable for many months to come.

    Not to change the subject here - but what kind of dog do you have? It looks like our dog and I am just interested in people who have our kind of dog - "Pointer/Lab" aka Black Lab/German Shorthair.

    Sweet!

    I am going to copy down the "Quilt Pox" sign and put it in my little itty bitty sewing room. Edie

    I thought the same thing when I looked at your avatar. Actually, Hero is a pound rescue puppy. We think black lab/Border collie mix. His coat looks like it would be course like a lab, but is soft as a bunny. And water doesn't roll off his back like our labs did, he gets wet and his hair goes...poooooof! :-)

    I've attached a pic of him with hubby a few years ago

    He is so sweet! And so is the dog!!!! Gotcha!!!! When I am trying to finish on a quilt and I have it laying on the floor, Bess comes over and lays on it (sort of a canine baptism, I 'spect) and she gets very perturbed when I want her "UP" - she just looks at me like, "Hey, you laid it on the floor, whatever is on the floor is mine". "Yah, but Bess, I already made you a quilt." That is another project I am working on to sell. Kitty Kovers and Bowser Blankies. Actually, Bess likes to be covered up, tucks her head under the quilt and there she will sleep for a few hours. Just mixing in some doggydom with quilting - gotta keep with the program. Incidentally, Bess was given to us by a farmer, who had both the mother and father and used them for hunting. Lab for water, G.Shorthair for game birds - we ended up with a dog that can point on two legs, has a thing for rabbits and during the summer she will go after the little white moths, she will point them with a point that would put a G. Shorthair to shame. (on two legs). Then she grabs them and eats them - protein!!!!

    Quick grab that FQ just in case you have to wipe your nose.

    Edie, Hero doesn't point, but he does tend to eat flies and moths.

    Crystal...save myself? Awh shucks, I don't wanna be saved.

    Trupeach, Use FQ for a runny nose? I should say not! That's why sleeves were invented! :wink:
