Think, what have you done?

The Sweet Boy and I ate Chinese Buffet for Memorial Day (what is more American than 5 buffet islands full of various stir fry items and soups?). The fortune cookie at the end of dinner revealed the little guy you see above.

"Your problem just got bigger. Think, what have you done?"

I'll tell you what I've done. I've totally ignored that the picture below consists of more wool than I'll be able to spin up this summer (I'm slow) and I bought more tonight.


Hello, my name is Erin and I'm a woolly batt addict.

Hello, my name is Denise, and I'm an all-craft-supplies addict. If I did nothing but projects till the day I die, I still couldn't work through the piles of "alternative art supplies" in my studio and garage. And yet I can't stop collecting.

We're not screwed up. We're...optimistic!!! :)

I like your thinking on this one, Denise. :)

I don't acknowledge collecting as a problem. My husband thinks it is, but I feel the same way about his sports viewing as he does my stash. I say stash away...you have to get your inspiration from somewhere and a lovely pile of wool might be it!

That is the most accusatory fortune cookie fortune I've ever seen! It didn't even give you the lotto numbers!

As for addicitions, there are worse ones to have than wool! I've always feared getting into knitting because I know I'd go bananas over the yarns and wools and all of that.

Haha, no worries! We've all done it... nothing wrong with having *too* many supplies... right?
hehee...

Oh, I think we are all kindred spirits in sharing the same affliction--the need to collect.

Sometimes when I know I shouldn't buy anymore, I will grab a bunch of findings, beads, and wire, just randomly, and sit down to make something. And I'll do it over and over again until I've used up a good portion of my supplies before I'll allow myself to buy anymore.

I've had some pretty amazing results with that too!

Oh sweetie! I could totally help you out with that! However, if you can confine all your batts in one plastic tub, I don't think it's quite on the scale of addiction. I know someone who has an entire garage, guest house and spare bedroom full of FIBER!

What a bizarre fortune cookie...
