    You know you are a quilter when your DH ask you; Do you want the shoes or the quilt? And your answer is the Quilt kit.

    Funny, but my answer would be "BOTH!"

    Maybe that is why I'm not married.. Hmm. :D

    ...When you go for fabric, buy lots more than you went for (not wearing shoes because you would rather spend your money on fabric). Find yourself sneaking it into the house and stashing it somewhere while no one is looking and hiding the receipt...

    I was getting ready for work today and was looking at a pair of dowdy pants and realized- I have not bought a speck of clothes for work in 4 years! That dates to when I started this obsession! I never thought I would get over the need for the latest styles, but it worked! As I sit here in my 4 year old sweater and standard black dress pants.

    (I do faithfully buy new undies every 6 month, have this fear if I were to die, someone has to clean out my underwear drawer and I don't want to be embarrassed)

    LOL -- I think most of us would pick the quilt (or anything else that has to do with quilts)!!

    And if you can still wear the same clothes after 4 years -- Woohoo! (I'm thinking weight gain here). And think of all that extra money you had for fabric. Think the clothes will make it 6 or 7 years????

    You know you're a quilter when....

    you and a friend go to second-hand stores and she's looking for things to wear and you're looking for things to cut up. :wink:

    there's nothing in the fridge but the freezer is full of microwave meals :wink:

    every outfit you wear is embellished by little snippits of thread :wink:

    you can talk about 'fat quarters' and not care if somebody might think you're referring to a body part :wink:

    HAHA. I was just thinking this week that when DH puts that shirt aside, I won't bring it to Goodwill. I'll cut it up. Oh, my I didn't realize how we quilters all think alike until I read the last few posts. Yep, we need to start having meetings. How many steps will we have to follow? :lol:

    You know when you have had enough coffee while quilting if you can thread the machine while it is running.
