    quilter's dilemma

    i have a quilt that needs two borders quilted and the binding completed.

    i have an ongoing handquilting project that's not going to be completed through good thoughts.

    i have a basted quilt that can wait.

    but...i designed a quilt last night and all i want to do is start working on it! i have everything i need to do it too, but it's gorgeous outside and retreating to the dark basement to quilt seems like a waste of a tremendously beautiful day.

    so many sad stories...we should all be so sad!

    Yep, i feel your pain. I have VOWED not to start another project till i finish the 4 i have going. Now once i have top, back and binding made its"finished " to me. Waiting to be quilted doesn't count for me....maybe that's why i have 8 quilts in the quilting queue!

    We had such beautiful weather this week and I felt to guilty to enjoy it. All I could think about were all those suffering on the East coast. My prayers are with them all.

    I'm in a similar situation!! I'm in a block swap and I have ONE more block to finish but I need to get fabric for it. I have other things I *can* do ... but none of them are "speaking" to me today. I keep wandering into the sewing room, picking a project up and putting it down for lack of inspiration. All I can think of is the block for the swap that I want to complete - and the fabric is on it's way in the mail.

    So instead I gave my dog a bath.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I'm on a two-for-one (self-imposed) schedule right now. I have to finish two UFOs before starting another new. It's working! I've already picked out 10 or 20 different patterns for my next one.....talk about motivation to finish up those UFOs! ROFL

    My delemma today is to buy or not to buy, I have an opportunity to buy an APQS Ultima II, 12". It will end up in my living room. Will I use it as much as I think? I've never owned a long arm.

    Sigh -- isn't this why we all have UFOs. I keep telling myself to finish a UFO (its been sitting around too long to be a project) and I have something else I want to make now -- and did I mention I have my eye on another project... Hmmm.. my problem is I get an idea, design it and then want to get going on it but in the mean time another idea comes to mind. No wonder I have a hard time finishing projects.
