All of your clothing takes less than 1/4 the space of your fabric.

Your animals feel entitled to their own quilts.

Soooooo true. ....and you comment to people you meet that their blouse, or whatever, would be really good in the quilt you are making. (Fortunately, the staff in both my doctors' offices understand me.)

. . . the only garage sales you go to may have been an estate from an elderly lady. They are the only ones around here that may have an "oprhan" block that needs rescued and loved.

Oh dear does that make me sound like a vulture, waiting for estate sales? Hmmmmm Undesided

No, a rescuer. If the heirs appreciated what they had, it would not be in the sale.

Hey, my futuer SIL says crafting goes in the same category on a budget as groceries! One of the reasons I love her....that was said after she said she really only needed grocery stores and video game stores, but some clothes stores would be good too.
