    You have invited 6 ladies (5 of which have to fly to Texas) to spend a week at your home for Quilt Festival and..

    Between the 7 of us....

    1.) Your stash can be raided and no one will know the difference afterwards.

    2.) You have enough quilting related notions that no one will miss anything.

    3.) You own enough sewing machines that everyone can sew at the same time all week long. (When not at Festival, of course!)


    I should also add that you are also an EXTREMELY lucky quilting addict when your husband encourages you. ;)


    17 days and counting until they arrive!

    (1 is my DMIL - 2 are DMIL's close friends that I adore - 2 are lifelong friends of mine - 1 is SIL of one of my friends)

    My Dear, you are definitely addicted to quilting, and if you think about all of the potential addictions in the world, I'd say quilting was at the top of the really good list of ones to have!

    Hope you have a blast! Sounds like that's going to happen anyway!

    Best Wishes to you!

    Sounds like so much fun! I'll miss this year's festival for the first time in about 20 years due to a mini-vacation.
    Oh but what a great addiction we enjoy!!

    Can I come? Can I come? PLEASE Please Please

    I need a vacation - and I'll even sleep on the floor - or outside - it's still warm in Texas now isn't it?

    Maybe if you set up a HUGE party tent 20 x 20 we could ALL come and sleep outside - wouldn't that be FUN FUN FUN

    Oh I'm sure said person would be VERY surprised! :)

    On an unrelated note....I have an idea of something I would like to make you but wanted to know if you were more of a crocheter or knitter? (when you're not glued to your sewing table of course!)

    I have never been much of a knitter. I have crocheted way more but have done not much of either in quite a while.
