    The reason I ask is because I dream about each quilt I am working on. Last night I dreamed that my sewing machine was also an embrodery machine. Imagine my disappointment when I woke up. Am I the only one that has these kind of dreams or am I just an addict?

    I dream of the quilt I am working on and fabric lots and lots of fabric. I think that is why I can't sleep most of the time.

    I agree with you, I also dream of colors and of patterns. I should have a pencil and paper handy so if I wake I can write down what I have dreamt. Some are beautiful!!!! Just can't remember it all in the morning. Lyla

    I dream about all the projects I want to work on and how the finished look will be. No wonder I am so tired in the morning.

    I dream about the quilt I am working on. The other night the quilt was not going together well so I quit & went to bed. I dreamed that I was almost finished putting it together. When I woke up I thought to myself "Maybe I just dreamed that I had trouble." Imagine my disappointment to go in there & find that the dream was that it went well & I was NOT almost finished! :D That set the tone for a great morning. :D

    I have dreamt about building a new house with a HUGE sewing room and everything that I want in it. But what is really wierd is that no matter what I dream, there is a quilt in the dream somewhere and that quilt is usually the next one that I want to make!

    I did last night. I think I was so full of excitement. I got a Featherweight at a garage sale and a Singer Purse. Both can be seen on the board!

    I dream of the quilt I'm working on, or the other craft project, and how I can arrange it, change certain things. I also dream of new designs and patterns. Last Sunday I woke up with 4 new pattern designs in my head! I couldn't take time to draw them out until I made it to work and had a few brief minutes.
    I sometimes wake up tired, but anxious to get to my quilting studio!

    You are not alone.

    I have worked out some complex problems I was too tired to tackle the nite before. In the morning I go to the sewing room, and they are as easy as could be!

    I guess that is where the old expression "sleep on it" comes from. All this time I tought it was to keep me from throwing my sewing machine out of the window in the dark and beaning an unsuspecting neighbor walking by.

    I dream about what I'm working on, quilts I want to make, just everything. Some mornings I have to get up and go straight to the sewing machine!

    I am so glad to see I am not alone. I was beginning to think I was gonna have to stop quilting cause I was going crazy or something. I only wish my quilts were as beautiful in life as they are in my dreams. Many great ideas do come from my dreams. I just wish I felt rested. Thank you all for your dream stories, I feel better now.

    Yes, my mind is like a word video. It is totally due to my being on the quiltingboard so much. I learn so much and want to remember everything. I see so many beautiful creations and look at them over and over in my mind. Sometimes I think I need to dry out so I can get an uninterruped nights sleep. I just haven't been strong enough to resist the temptation yet to do it.

    I dream about quilting a lot. A new quilt to make or finishing one I have started. I had a dream about a cat quilt. It had the cutest fabric. The next day I went to the fabric store and they had just got that fabric in. Funny.

    "OH ya" I dream about it all the time..... I thought it was my age, but it must be our creativity inside us all that makes us have dreams about it. I even fall asleep thinking about what I'm going to make next.
