I Have A Problem

Spring hasn't even fully arrived here in the Northwoods and already I'm wishing for frigid, snowy days of winter when there's absolutely no work for me to do out-of-doors. Why? SO I CAN QUILT!!

The following pictures taken in my quilt room this morning could have been taken a month ago. Seriously. Nothing would look any different than it does today.

This pile of mumble-jumble just keeps growing (it's fallen over a couple of times already) as I stack more things on top. It's waiting for the Magic Organizational Fairy to come and clean and rearrange the storage areas so it all fits in. Somewhere.

These are a pair of my husband's pants that have a split seam. He goes through stages where every piece of clothing he owns seems like it needs mending and one item or another lives with my quilting projects for a period while patiently waiting to be made whole again.

I'll bet this baby quilt has been in this same position on the sewing machine partially quilted for at least four weeks.

Literally the only thing I have done in this room in what seems like FOREVER is to spend 10 or 15 stolen minutes here and there trying to finish the last blocks to complete this quilt that I think must by now be permanently adhered to my design wall . . . because it's been there so long.

Sign. Well, there are only so many hours in each day and if I'm doing one thing, I can't be doing another. (How's that for profundity?) I need to shape up and learn to enjoy and appreciate what I am doing and completely block out the plethora of other things I'm thinking about.

Anybody got an old set of horse blinders I can borrow?

I love the quilt on your design wall. Will it be a baby quilt too? The colors and the scrappiness are great!!

Hi, Beth - No, it's a big one (kinda) at 64" x 64". It will be a couch quilt for moi! :o)

Beautiful quilts. I especially love the one you have hanging on the wall. I know what you mean. I keep working on finishing projects, but somehow more keep getting added. It's driving me nuts! I guess I should relax and let that dream go...

Hi, Amber - Thanks! Wouldn't it be nice if we could just (guilt-free) quilt, quilt, quilt on whatever felt good? Hey, why not? There aren't any Quilt Police, are there?
