A retraction

Not too very long ago, I said something about how I have a lot of quilts &, because I live in the sub-tropics, I really don't need many quilts.

That hasn't changed, that's still true.

But the winter has begun early down here on the Gulf Coast. I know, I know, it is nothing like as bad as what places further North are experiencing -- heck, even Dallas has already had an ice storm -- but our long, hot summers make us pretty fragile, so when it gets cold(ish), we suffer.

Anyway, I have to admit that I feel richer than Bill Gates right now because of my wealth of quilts: one night is a 3 quilt night, the next night just requires 2 -- but maybe a different 2. How about these 2 small quilts on me & these other 2 small quilts on Shug. Clashing piles, coordinated piles, I change the quilt combinations like ... well, like I *can*, because I have so many!

I LOVE it & it makes me feel like a billionaire!

Ha! Love it!! In the summer I feel a little silly having all these quilts, but we do like to cycle through them during the cold spells.

I feel exactly the same way! I live in Sydney Australia and our winters aren't as cold as others and some nights its 2 quilts and others are a 3 quilt night. The fun is picking which ones to use that night.

Yea! I totally agree. Maybe we should send a quilt to poor ol' Bill Gates.

Yes too...unless I am taking a picture, my bed looks just like this picture of yours. Quilt hoarding and quilt making were not so useful in Miami or Phoenix, but here in the Carolina's, I too feel so rich. pile 'em on and sleep well. Merry Christmas
