    I found myself at the sewing machine a lot today, yet I kept walking away from quilt blocks to making things like pin cushions? I do this a lot. Sometimes I start a new quilt and then within' an hour or so, I whip out a quick skirt for myself! Hmm...strange. Is this disinterest or what?

    I start working on a quilt and when I see how it's going to look I want to start a new challenge. I need to make the new challenge to finish what I have started!

    Me, too. I need some kind of pill that will make me work instead of wander around and raid the fridge.

    No, you are not the only one. I also seem to have several projects going at once. 2 quilts, an aporn, set of placemats, and a 5th grade graduation dress.

    Ha! This is so me! My DH says I can't finish anything! I have a ton of WIP (I refuse to admit that some might be UFO's) I just see a piece of fabric and it screams to go into a different project!

    My fiance is always teasing me that I have too many projects started. He can't understand why I don't work on just one project at a time! :roll:

    I, too, have more than one thing going at a time. Even then, I have ideas streaming through my head. Right now, I am trying to finish up "work in progress" as I start another project.

    If I never finish all my WIP's or use all my stash, I've told my husband not to fret. I use this hobby to keep my sanity. It is worth every cent invested and every hour I relax.

    Sue said it best CREATIVE MINDS. There is nothing wrong with that. It's when we procrastinate, then we have a problem lol lol lol

    I was on the other side of the state Friday and wanted to check and see if their walmart had fabric still. Saw this beautiful fabric with large roses . I just loved it, and said I know I have seen that fabric used somewhere I have been. Got home earlier this evening and was sitting at my dinning room table and I looked up at my new curtain I made last week to use just to brighten things up for the summer. You guessed it. I had made them out of that same fabric and I had even purchased the fabric at our local wal mart. I did find out I have very high blood pressure and my thryoid is under working and they started me on new meds. Do you think I am safe to be around people or just losing it?

    Ok, here's my theory - when my oldest was younger and we were homeschooling she would flit from one creative thing to another - she would embellish things, etc. I was told it's a sign of a genius mind - yep, I'm going with that....

    Lets see, One on the frame-worked on it for two hours today, cut my next project on the Accuquilt, finished DGD cross stitch quilt, and bound it, finished second DGD birth wall hanging, still working on the "Year of" for second DGD book. And am in the process of designing DGS quilt.

    Yep, that's what I got. Add that to my pattern illness...

    I must be a genius, too!
    My sister bought me a mug that says, "If I was organized, I'd be Dangerous!" Problem is that if I ever got everything completely organized, I'd just forget where I put it all!

    Me too, me too!! All of the above! I have so many UFOs and WIPs. A quilt to hand quilt, two applique projects right now, a top without a border, 30+ tops to quilt, a baby quilt that needs binding, another one that needs a label, a project on my sewing machine, another in a case that I take to a sewing group on Mondays, a dozen purses and tote bags started, a knitted purse that needs a lining, quilted pillows that need backs and stuffed, a dozen scarves that need fringes... oh I could go on and on. And on. Oh yeah. That's me.

    When I am sewing on one quilt, I am THINKING about cutting out another...and sometimes just can't wait to get up and slice a few rows of that new fabric that's just waiting for the rotary cutter!!
