Wink Quilter's Acronyms - Funny

Hooray - it's Friday!

And as we're at the end of the week, I thought you might enjoy a giggle at some of these Quilting Acronyms.

As you know, as quilters we're pretty good at coming up with short set of letters to explain quilting terms - I mean, we've all got UFO's, right? And we happily use FQ's in our quilts or bags too.

Try googling quilt acronyms, and you'll find some like these:
(Not so familiar, but very clever)

HSY Haven't Started Yet

PHD Project Half Done (yes - we all have PHD's behind our names!!!)

WIM Work In Mind

WIVSP Work in Very Slow Progress

TOAD Trashed Object Abandoned in Disgust

PIG Project In Grocery bag

USO Unstarted Object

STASH Special Treasures All Secretly Hidden (!!!)

SABLE Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy

And my favourites...

WOMBAT Waste Of Money Batting And Time

Here's a link to a list on this Board with these, and many more that you may find just as amusing ... and perhaps helpful too!
Quilter's Dictionary & Acronyms ... a consolidation of previous posts

Hope they help you make your way around the alphabet soup!

What a great way to start a Friday, with a smile.
My goal for the weekend:

start on the PIG,
put the USO back in the STASH,
get rid of the TOAD,
send the WOMBAT to the Goodwill,
say no to the FART with my friend
and sell some of the SABLE.
