My name is Charlotte, sometimes known as Ms Lottie, occasionally as The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady. This is my blog, where you'll find me writing a lot about my quilting and textile arts and a little about my family's life in a small seaside town in New Zealand. Haere mai!

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

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

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

  4. 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.
