    You know you're a quilter when you jump in the car to drive 35 miles one way to hit a sale of fabric 50% off and don't even think about the price of gas. Did that last Saturday and only bought 19 yards.

    don't pick on her. she was obviously having a slow day. poor kid. the rule of thumb in a case like that is approximately one yard per mile travelled or per percentage point of discount.

    isn't it?

    Most of the time I hate my tiny house...but not at the moment. I'm kinda glad that I don't have room for 5 yards let alone 19....I'm sure the checkbook is happy too.

    If you saw how much I have already. I've got fabric in the sewing room, so much i can't get in there any more. There is fabric stored in my son's room, the son that has moved out, fabric in the closet, fabric under the bed in the guest room and of course where my machine is set up.
    Nancy runs this sale every year around Memorial Day. This year is was a couple of weeks early because she has a graduation to go to.

    Maybe someday when all the kids move out....that inpires another one:

    You know youre a quilter when you map out and design your quilting room when the children move out....and they are only 3,4, and 5!!

    You know you are a quilter when: You get up in middle of night to go to bathroom and end up in your sewing room instead of back in bed.

    Yes, I saw that machine you are talking about, not something I would ever spend money on however. Was it called a felter?

    you've got it backwards. the frame is forced to share the room.
    :lol:

    i must be a quilter. i'm always recruiting new ones.

    just got back from a nice long visit with my buddy in Naples, FL. i left behind (accidentally on purpose) a brand new 12" square ruler, rotary cutter and mat, plus a PIG. when i called to let her know i'd made it all the way home, she told me she'd been to the store and ended up bringing home ... what else? ... more fabric! The PIG is now a UFO.

    :P

    omigosh!!! we shopped til i dropped! LOL

    i didn't do much teaching. i just showed her the board; she saw a block she really liked and started pulling out the fabrics we'd bought and choosing which to use for what. she wants to see how much she can figure out for herself before i get a chance to "teach". she's a smart cookie, so i may not be needed. [sniffle, sniffle.]

    She may not need you but we need you all the time. So no need to sniffle.

    I think pigs are my favorite. The first time I told dh about them he asked if I was working on a herd!!!! Cracked me up.

    Glad to see you back Patrice. Maybe Tim isn't so happy, but I know I am!!

    thankyou, thankyou, thankyou :-)

    if he isn't happy, i'm pretty sure he'll pretend to be. i wouldn't want him to know i said so, but he's a smart cookie.
    :wink:

    I'm really surprised he didn't respond to that!! I've had a few lengthy posts with him before. He is really smart and he does things with math that I certainly don't get.

    oh and

    You know you're a quilter when you have a macy's size inventory of shoe boxes all filled with 4" hexagons made of scraps for that grandmother's garden you are going to make someday when you have enough fabric.

    You know you're a quilter when...

    --You were a poor math student in high school, yet you are able to figure out exactly how much fabric you would need to make a quilt you've planned out.

    --You think you can run the little handheld thingy (that spits out the price stickers) they have at the fabric section of your Wal-Mart just because you've seen it at work so many times.

    --You've gone to a friend's house to stay one night there and you bring your quilting stuff (quilt project, graph paper for ideas, etc.)..."just in case".

    --You got fabric for your birthday.

    That birthday one is definately right. I got 10 completely mismatched fat quarters last week. WOOO HOOO. No clue what to do with them yet, but my stash needed fed.
