    So my sister is in town and wanted to go to a bar last night and listen to her friend's band. I agreed to go and after an hour and a half I decided it was time to go and all I could think of is that I could be finishing my quilt!!!

    My DH has not been a fan of my "nesting" because it means that I am moving around the house and not sitting still long enough to watch any television shows we have recorded to watch together. The other night, he said to me, "Don't you have something to design or cut or iron that you can just sit on the couch?" So needless to say, I spent almost two hours sitting on the couch, watching television and ironing fabric for projects :)

    Yep! I can be at a wedding and think about quilting. I can get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, and think about quilting. I can't focus on a TV program without thinking of quilting. Hey, it's what we love to do and I LOVE it!

    I"m watching the Bears/Packers game now and reading these messages.... or any other program we have recorded... my husband is in his chair watching the game with his laptop.... I'm either planning the next quilt , looking for 'stuff' on ebay , usually quilting items, on EQ7, or my quilting designs for the next quilt i'm quilting .. I use HQ Fusion and ProStitcher... I'm usually laying out another quilt in ProQ Designer... so we never JUST watch tv...
    We call it togetherness!!!

    An hour and a half in a noisy bar would drive me bonkers. Much rather be home quilting.
