You know you're a stretcher when you crochet a poncho for your vet's daughter in exchange for payment on services for your dog, or perform animal care while your neighbor is away in exchange for farm fresh eggs or milk.
You know you're a stretcher when you use envelopes from one company to pay bills to another.
You know you're a stretcher when you save your poodle's shaved fur (for the nieghbor to spin) for some prespun wool yarn that you can now dye to a color you want. Yes, I've done this. LOL
