Christmas, especially snowmen and purple stuff. I can't walk away and I'll probably never cut any of it. It's sad...but it's me!

Fabric is my weakness, especially flannels! They "speak" to me, LOL. My flannel stash is way bigger than my cottons, I suppose because I'm always cold it seems, and it's easier to make another flannel quilt for the living room than compete with my husband over the thermostat! :lol:

And it is right next to Trader Joes, so I must stop weekly and see what is on the sale table and what new fabrics have come into the shop. All the employees know me by name and everyone says "hello". Then there is my favorite store that had been putting fabrics on sale for $1.69 a yard and I cannot resist buying the whole rest of the bolt of a quality fabric that I like. Everyone there knows my name also. Too bad that store is closing. I prefer yardage cause fat quarters are never enough, especially if I like it. I love lucious florals and I am a sucker for the Kaufman "Fusions" in all kinds of colors.
Gayle, they say you know you're an alcoholic when all the bartenders know your name...so I guess you really know you're a fabriholic when all the fabric store clerks know your name!

lol. I may have to go today and just say "Hi" to all my friends. The shop closest to my house I have not been in for a couple weeks, cause I spent so much at the other one, well, they will probably ask where I have been. Can't keep them guessing why I haven't visited can I? Of course If I go in I have to buy something...... :lol: :oops: :lol: :oops: :lol:

I just had to hit two shops today. Didn't buy much, just 2 1 yard pieces, a seam ripper and a pattern at one shop and a 3 yard and a 2 yard piece at the one by the house. Can't go in and say "Hi" without buying something!!!
