Take 5: Resources, Links and Other Fun FindsHere in Central Montana, we’ve spent the last several days under cloudy skies. The alternating bouts of snow and rain can make for dreary days as winter refuses to give way to warmer, sunnier weather.

So, in an effort to brighten the mood, I thought it would be fun this week to share a bit of sewing-related humor …

Five “Sew” Funny Sayings

I’m a fabric-a-holic on the road to recovery. Just kidding. I’m on the road to the fabric store.

I'm working on my PhD (projects half done) in sewing.

My biggest fear is that when I die my husband will sell all my craft supplies for what I told him they cost.

My therapist advised I limit my fabric stash to one room. I now have a new therapist.

Sewing fills my days ... not to mention my living room, bedroom and closets!

Have a funny sewing quote to share?

    We don’t have a living room anymore. It is my sewing room and bit by bit, I am taking over the dining room. Only hold up is the darn dining room table!
