BIQR 2010: Addiction, The Characters part 2

Hello, my name is Carol and I am a fabricaholic. It's true poor Carol, she is addicted to buying fabric! At each retreat she is on a new Fabric Reduction Program...last year it was the oriental fabrics, this year the 30's prints! Clutched in her hands are the last crumbs of her 30's prints and the last small wallhanging she made from it hanging beside her! Way to go!

Above one more 30's print top! Below, well... she is still working on those oriental fabrics....maybe next year.

They say it can start with just 2....

but for Allyn it leads to 5 and 6, and eventually 9 martinis!

It didn't help when Penny fed her addiction with this saucy little tumbler!

Poor Allyn after so many martinis, soon she was seeing spots, I mean, squares!

Where's Christine???
Can it get any worse than this? Digging and rummaging for scraps? While on her cel phone, no less!
Are you still on that phone? multi-tasking, I guess!

Some people are chain smokers, but Sue, well she was a chain piecer!

I don't think I've ever seen anyone chain piece 4 rows at a time!
Below you see one of the rare photos of Elisa. I never actually saw her sew...but she must have because, there they are, all her liberated blocks. Elisa, I think she is addicted to work...some people go on retreats to get away from work, but not Elisa. She tried, but being the editor of Quilters World magazine, well that job keeps you busy!

Green. Absolutely green. With envy. Looks as if great fun was had by all.

These women need an intervention! I would recommend more frequent quilting retreats and retail therapy!

That looks like so much fun! Now I'm really not in the mood to go to work today! I'd rather stay home and play.

I don't need an intervention. I can give up fabric collection at any time I choose. I just don't want to right now. And you can't make me!! LOL
