One of the group's I participate on held an Online Retreat in celebration of the group's third birthday. Although I didn't participate because of other obligations, I did read several of the messages posted by participants. Below is from one of the posts.
Only A Quilter…
Only a Quilter says, "I really don't need another project," then offers to make a quilt for a friend.
Only a Quilter's family would put up with, understand and love a quilter.
Only a Quilter invites everyone to see her sewing room, then says, "Don't look at the mess."
Only a Quilter has a welcome mat at the door to her home and an "Enter at Your Own Risk" sign on the door of her sewing room.
Only a Quilter would rush to finish a gift quilt. Not so it's done in time for the recipient's birthday, but so it's done in time for Show and Tell.
Only a Quilter would let three later-arriving patients go ahead of her at the doctor's office because she is on the verge of completing a block.
Only a Quilter would spend more hours sewing several hundreds of buttons on a quilt to embellish it, but wouldn't take five minutes to replace a button on a pair of pants.
Only a Quilter would spend hours shopping for the "Just Right" fabric and find out later that she had it in her stash.
Only a Quilter would spend an hour ironing wrinkles out of fabric but have a basket full of wrinkled clothes.
My friend Daisy submitted the original post and my other friend Karen added the last two. Although the statements are quite funny on their own, they are so very true!
How many of these statements can you relate to?
