I had never made a BOM on my DSM and so I embarked on a FART.  My husband suggested I check my STASH and my STABLE.  I considered it since I had HIPS.  I thought about my PhD and all of my PIGS but ignored this and left for my LQS.

I was excited about being out and about again and thought of WHIMM.  Right now I have eleven WIPS and they seem to be WISP.  Was I shopping for something that would be a WOMBAT?  Thoughts swirled around in my head as to why I had so many WIPs.  Maybe I had a FOB?  Or maybe I doubted my FMQ skills.   I pushed that aside and fantasized about all the FQs I would see, TOTs I might touch, and of course the WOWs that I loved so much.

After I shopped and purchased my BOM, I resolved to work on my UFOs.  Maybe I would hire a LAQ or a MAQ?  I knew one of each.  If I did this, I could TGIF my UFOs and finally be happy with the PHIMC.

That’s my story.  Now have fun matching up the acronyms with the quilting terms.
