    I have the squares cut for my S/O's Christmas quilt getting ready to start sewing together. sorting fabric now to make it easier to sew small squares together......
    Waiting for November for Udder cowboy fabric to come out so I can make baby quilt.
    I have fabric for my Christmas table cloth.
    Fabric for my "Texas Lone Start Flag" wall hanging using bluebonnet fabrics.
    Just now I am running through my head how to make the Kool Kats walhanging.

    Welcome to the club. The longer you are a member, the more projects you will have in your head----and your sewing area!!! The fabric, patterns, books, tools---it is all so addictive. But, what a fun addiction it is!!!!

    I was told by a lady at my quilt shop you are a quilter if you are binding one quilt while piecing another and cutting another and planning another, all in the same month. Wow, I have found something I excel at.LOL :lol: :lol: :lol: . OK, I'm littlehud and I am a fabric addict. ( and I love it )

    Think about it this way=====What a MARVELOUS problem to have! To always have images of quilts running through your head. Thinking about all those fun projects, dreaming about fabric, what beautiful and exciting thoughts--kind of like being a kid thinking about your birthday, Christmas, or some very exciting event to look forward to. Sounds like a guarantee for being happy. Glad you have the fever!
