A friend just sent me some comments by Dave Barry, including one I thought rang a bell:"There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness'". Maybe 'obsession' would be kinder, A.
My sister just opened up a quilt shop and called it FABRIC OBSESSION. I sent her a definition of obsession from the dictionary "obsession...an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a persons mind." She put it on the back of her business card. I have it written in flour across my forehead. weavershouse
