Wednesday’s Words

Recently my sister blogged about making decisions, and that got me thinking.  With the advent of the new year, and all of the resolutions, expectations and anticipation that it brings, there are usually a lot of decisions being made.  So the word for today is:         Decisions
While on vacation, our decisions were easy – which tourist spot to hit on any given day.  Now we’re home and the decisions are a little tougher – like which quilting project to tackle first!!   My cupboards are stacked with projects just waiting for me
002003 and I’d made the decision to commit to a couple of challenges and swaps – so really need to get at it.
Along with getting projects done, comes the decisions around fabrics and supplies to purchase.  I’d made some purchases before leaving on vacation, and some more while away, but there is always more to buy, isn’t there!
But if you’re undecided when fabric shopping, not because you can’t decide on the ‘right’ fabric, but because other excuses come to mind, I leave you with this:
15 Reasons to Buy Fabric)
(as if we really need them)
1. Insulates the closet where it is kept
2. Helps to keep the economy going. It’s our duty to support cotton farmers, textile mills and quilt shops
3. It is less expensive and more fun than psychiatric care
4. A sudden increase in the boll weevil population might wipe out the cotton crop for the next 10 years
5. Because it is on sale
6. The one who dies with the most fabric wins
7. It keeps without refrigeration
8. You don’t have to cook it to enjoy it. You never have to feed it, change it, wipe its nose or walk it
9. You need the extra weight in the trunk of the car if it’s snowy and icy
10. Because you are worth it!
11. Like dust, it’s good for protecting previously empty spaces in the house, like the ironing board, the laundry hamper, the dining table…
12. When the big hurricane comes, all the fabric shops might get washed out into the ocean and never be seen again
13. Stress from dealing with the Fabric Police (husband) is enough to make you buy more fabric
14. It’s not immoral, illegal or fattening
15. It calms the nerves, gratifies the soul and makes you feel good
Happy decisions!   Blessings, Peg


  1. And it is very soft in case you fall down, you might land on it.

  2. With a few minor adjustments, this also works for yarn!
