When does collecting become an addiction


A nana rug collection

Is it when you look in any direction in your house and you see at least one thing from your ever growing "collection" ? (Confession: There are another four blankets off camera in that room alone!!)

Is it when you make a beeline straight for the manchester section of every op shop that crosses your path in the hope of finding another one?

I think i have a problem...... at least its a warm fuzzy one

but what if there was an international blanket shortage? Then that Mr would be happy you had such a vast collection, wouldn't he? ;)

I'm sort of getting the vibe that your Mr is as resigned to your addiction as mine is to obsessions around my neck of the woods?

Is that why there is such a shortage for crocheted blanket Canberra wide?? I can never find any these days...! (just joking). Enjoy your collection, they're beautiful. :-)

Obsession:the domination of one's thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc....could be worse you could be obsessed with housework eeek how awful would that be....so is having eleven sewing machines obsessive???

Haha! They're warm, fuzzy and pretty :)

I've been going through the process of letting go of my collections. My siblings say I'm becoming cold and heartless! :P

Maybe I need to start a blanket collection of my own... ;)
