    I also go in streaks. I'm that way with my house, my quilts, my cooking, my computer etc. LOL why not. If I go the other way, it becomes a job. I just left upstairs looking for binding material. I just turned off the light and came down and am on this machine. Gonna watch football and maybe nap along. I'm 83, why can't I?

    I am very disciplined I totally finish a quilt before starting another.

    There are times I am very productive and then times when I allow the heaviness of life to interfere with my quilting. I generally do a good job of finishing projects. Although, the one I am working on right now should have been done last November. It is for a coworker who went out on disability for ALS. It makes me sad, and I refuse to work on it sad. Hope and Love only...no sadness!

    I get distracted when I see a quilt I want to make. Then I drop everything else and start a new one. Lots of unfinished quilts in my sewing room.

    I think I am ADD late in life. I love quilting and the many paths it has taken me. I have even set a goal this year to learn to appliqué - then I get side tracked and now want to make cathedral window pincushions for Valentine gifts. I also have some potholders that are perfect for Valentine's Day that need to be finished and mailed this week, oh wait I have this cute lattice quilt and all its strips sorted on the table - will it never end.

    Yep - that's me - a sporadic, mood quilter!!! My attention is easily caught by this and that. I could look at website after website of design ideas and such, get inspired by Bonnie Hunter and scrappy quilting (I did get a lot of my fabric sorted into bins), etc. - rather than spending time quilting. I get pulled in so many directions as to what I want to do - that I then do nothing! As I don't want to have multiple projects around that need to be finished, I normally do not have more than 2 projects going at once. Right now I have a tumbler lap quilt that is about 2/3rds of the way quilted, and I have the squares ready to put together for another lap quilt (x's and o's pattern from Missouri Star Quilt). That one is scrappy - my first.

    I am semi in the mood to get back in my sewing room again, and actually got my sewing machine set up for FMQing on my tumbler quilt. Hopefully soon!

    Even knowing we are moving from Michigan to Nevada this next year has not stopped me from starting new projects. I keep replacing what I sold with more. I have refrained from buying books and patterns...so far anyway!!!

    My problem is I want to make about everything I see. So I get that started and before I know it I have put it in a plastic bag for later. New project has come along.

    I think that's just the nature of many of us. There's nothing wrong with quilting when you feel like it and doing other stuff when you don't. Unless you have a deadline for something that absolutely has to be done! As for all your projects you have you want to do, who knows, you may surprise yourself and finish all of them
