    Okay--just think, when you're done--you can post a photo of the masterpiece in the picture section and get lots of compliments. :wink:

    Linda, you need to make a rug! It uses up alot of your scrapes too. Look at Mary's tutorial and go to town. It's mindless work and You get a great rug out of it!

    I like, no, I LOVE quilting but I also have many other committments. Often times, if I get 5 minutes to sit and quilt, I feel like I'm really missing out on my favorite pastime.

    That said, I keep projects in various stages. If I sit to machine quilt and it's just not clicking, I can grab another bag that needs 100 2 inch squares cut, or go embroider on the other machine. I find if I do things while I'm doing my laundry, I am very good at bribing myself--only 2 more to do after I fold this load!

    I love the LQS--I always find something :wink:

    So nice to talk to you guys...I did get some sewing done yesterday. I had a big stash of batiks and saw the "tube" quilt in Quilters World mag and started that one and must say I got alot done on it. It has a diagonal setting so each row had to be lined up right. Anyway love all the hints and maybe I can get back on track. As of right now I don't have any hand projects going. Finished all my blocks on the Asian quilt. My DD and I went to the Chicago show in April and I took a class from Pat Campbell. She had alot of gorgeous patterns. Hope everyone has a great New Years. We probably will be staying home. Heavy fog here in NE Michigan with rain???? predicted. Last Friday we got 12" of snow but thats Michigan......

    I always find this time of year heading into January I have to really push myself to get back into sewing mode. I guess I sew up a storm from Sept-Dec I am whopped come Christmas. I am finding I am very tired this season. I tend to give myself a little break before getting back into sewing/quilting mode again. I really need to push myself hard this year cause I have a pile of things I want to complete and need to be completed this coming new year!

    Maybe this will be seen as apostasy :wink: but I just stop quilting for a while. I knit, I crochet, I read a book. I even -- GASP -- clean! There. I've admitted it. Nothing gets me in the mood to sew or quilt like taking a break from the machines for a while.
    Anyway, just my two cents.

    Cleaning would do it for me :) :) . I'll do anything to avoid that!!!
