My name is Suzie and I am a fabric addict.
The rationalisations that prevent me from believing I have a problem.
It is cheaper than gambling.
It is more legal than heroin.
It is less physically damaging than extreme sports.
It is less socially destructive than alcohol.
It is more socially appropriate than sex addiction.
It is more practical than collecting fine china.
It is more community building than playing with model trains.
It uses less bandwidth than facebook, myspace or you tube.
It is more useful than restoring cars.
It is less privileged than playing golf.
It is less fattening than a vanilla slice.
And welcome Spring. What other way would I want to celebrate the turning of the seasons?
Now all I need is a clone to do all the child minding, report writing and domestic godessness whilst I sew us all our spring and summer wardrobes...
