This blog is a bit of a ramble through my life. There's a lot about quilting and textile arts, a sprinkle of my family life and some of my thoughts and ponderings. We currently live aboard an old wooden 1945 Navy boat, called MV Cerego, so you'll find me writing about that too. Welcome aboard!

Jumping on the Wagon.

My name is Ms Lottie. 

I am a Fabricaholic.

To save my family from bankruptcy (and my cupboard shelves from bowing under the weight), I pledge not to buy any more fabric this year.

The thought makes me very nervous - what if I NEED fabric?  What if I see a piece that will be PERFECT for the next quilt I'm going to make?

Well, I will be strong!  (And I will dive into my scrap box to see if it will yield any treasures.)

(Ulterior motive that I didn't tell my husband:  if I don't spend any money on fabric now, I just might be able to save some so I can spend it at the Remarkable Quilt Symposium next year.)


  1. It is not uncommon for people who seek treatment for an addiction to relapse. :-)

    Just don't buy fabric & drive. I believe that's against the law.

  2. I have the same!

  3. Well....yes. And yes me too.

    Maybe I'll get to see you in person at the conference :)

  4. Ahh. But there's always an ulterior motive, isn't there.
    Or fine print.
    Or BOTH!
    (good luck with it!)

  5. What I would give to have my husband read these comments. He doesn't do computers, but how I wish he did. I catch it daily on my collecting the things I do, fabric being a huge part. I am so glad to hear I am not alone.
