    The purpose of life is to discover your gifts.
    The meaning of life is to give your gifts away with love.

    I just saw one on Facebook- "Quilters always press to the Dark Side" with an outline of Darth Vader around it
    " a clean house is the sign of a broken sewing machine"

    I bought a pin years back that states "I have a weakness, I must confess it. I buy fabric just to possess it."

    Someone gave me a FQ with quilting related sayings.

    "Is a nine patch part of a twelve step program?"
    "Quilters know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em"
    "She who dyes the most fabric wins"
    "A quilt on the bed is worth two in the head"

    I hate to be a nit-picker, but embroidery is a noun,the name of the process. Embroider is a verb and that is what you want to do to the fabric. May I say that you are not the only one who uses the term this way, either. Another of my pet peeves is "boarder" for border. A boarder is someone who pays to live in your home; border is the finishing edge on something: quilt, wall paper, or pictures. Please don't be offended by my comments; I just like to set the record straight.

    When I was studying linguistics at university, a very dear professor of mine who was teaching an advanced class for students thinking of grad school said the following: "linguistics is wonderful but it could be detrimental to your social life. From now on you will pay no attention to what people have to say, but rather how they say it".
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise

    No one likes a show-off or to be corrected and embarrassed!
