Quilt Signs

Aren't computers the most interesting things? You inadvertently press one little itty bitty button, and days later you find out that your posts have stopped feeding to the blogging world.
I was wondering why I didn't have any responses in the comment box. At first I justified the lack of response thinking everyone must be going through the January dull drums. Then I wondered if I had done something to make everyone lose interest. Lo and behold it was just a technical difficulty. I am so relieved!
I have been honored today to receive many kind words through e-mail and the comment box. You have missed me as much as I have missed you!
I have only been doing posts since June, but I've become quite attached to my blogging friends. I love to view the things you are working on, and I love receiving your comments.
It's so good to be back.

I've been thinking about quilt signs. My sewing room has a few signs that represent my (addiction? passion?) interest in the quilting world. They say "This is me. This is what I love".
This sign hangs over my collection of thimbles.

Friends have given me a few quilt signs as gifts. This one really represents how I feel.
(Duh! Very silly!)

I found this metal sign at a quilt store. It's so heavy that it could double as a bacon press.

Bev, who is in my friendship group gave me this sign for Christmas. We share a lot of personal things while we are sewing in our group, and it's true that we try and keep that information just among ourselves.

I've seen a lot of other signs around quilter's houses. What signs represent you? I'd love to see them on your blogs.

Hey Nedra - I think you bought one of those QUILT signs when we were shopping together! How fun to know that you still have it!

These are so cute. So so cute. My favorite is "silly question" However, the quilt take on the Vegas saying is hilarious. Kind of true too. Glad you got your issue fixed.

I was just wondering where you were today - so glad it was just a technical glitch and nothing serious! On the bright side, you sure gave us all a bunch of great posts to read all at once!!!
