    I have tons of batting. I have loads of fabric that I COULD sew, but the tops that are done, and ready to be quilted, I cannot play with because I have to wait until I get some backing fabric. I want to work on the Boxed Squares that I named "Candy Shoppe". Now I could be working on several other things including one in a frame and one in a hoop, but I really want to do this one.

    Jeepers it's just like one of the cats. 32 toys scattered across the living room and little paws are searching for something that rolled under the couch.

    Am I the only one who is like this?

    The grass is greener, we always want what's out of reach. I don't like waiting very much either. I have this itch to sew a quilt, but I don't have enough fabric to get to it yet! I've been buying little bits here and there, but mostly have stuff that would not match or coordinate with each other. So, I wait... Maybe I'll play those numbers and get lucky lol

    Don't you just hate it. I have loads of fabric in my stash, but nothing matches for a quilt. I have made myself promise that the only quilts I will make, has to have at least 1 of my larger fabric pieces in my stash.

    At least that is how I feel/think when my husband is in the room looking at all my fabric.

    I'm waiting right now. I bought some fabric today. Wanted to come home and get busy but waiting for it to come out of washer.
    And yes, I hate it when I open my cupboard to a thousand scraps but nothing goes together.

    I'm the same way. I need to push myself to finish the quilt tops I have now. The problem is I just got two new quilt kits from Connecting Threads and I want to do those. :cry: :cry: :cry: :roll:
