you lose the ability to type the word quilt quit..................................

When you plan a vacation, the first thing you think about is "How can I bring my sewing machine?"

....You keep several boxes of scraps and know just what you want to do with each of them.

....You and your DH are constantly 'thready'.

---When you talk about your grandmother's flower garden, no plants are involved.

....When you talk about batting (sorry, Aussies) you are not referring to baseball.

...You plan trips around quilt stores and quilt shows.

...When you are planning Christmas presents for family members your first thought is something quilted.

....Your photo albums contain more quilts (yours and others you liked) than family members.

TMM, so true.

.....The only reason you have an iron is for preparing quilt fabrics.

When you'd rather watch TV shows that relate ONLY to quilting!

you have become an expert on voices because you don't actually watch, just listen to movies!
DH has to rewind parts of a movie because you were not watching and missed a crucial "silent" clue! Very Happy

You sew dresses for the GD but take all the scraps home.

You leave clothes at DD's house so the great fabric you found in their area stores will fit in luggage.

Life seems rather dull until you are around other quilters.

When you are looking to buy a home and all your concerned about is space for your quilt frame and fabric and there is a place for your fabric to go and hide while you are not using it. Measurements are for space needed for your quilting not your furniture.

...strangers see your purse and go all google-eyed over it.

...most of your charity giving involves quilts

...many of your friends are on-line fabriholics

...you spend much more on quilting fabric than clothes or accessories.

...recent rises in the cost of cotton put a major dent in your budget.
