    Oh quiltncrazy I didn't mean that y'all would actually yell at me. I just know a couple of people who would have teased me that I was trying to make my numbers look smaller. I wish they were less but I am horrible about getting ahead of myself. I usually find a pattern, technique or fabric I really like and start buying for it. Some of these I didn't even realize I had everything together for it until I started thinking about it. It is very true though that the projects for others will get done first. My DH is always asking just when I am going to make something for me :wink:

    Oh my! Oh my! After reading all these posts, I clearly do not have enough fabric. :lol: :lol:

    My WIP list is short.

    1. Winter Wall hanging ( Taking Home the Tree - Applique)
    2. Queen Quilt (pattern is a Flying Goose derivative with a Flying Goose border)
    3. Advent Calendar (Paper Piecing)

    That would be it!

    The more fabric you have, the less painful the fall. lol

    I like this-- I guess if I keep throwing it all over the floor when I'm trying to "match" scrappy quilt fabrics, then I'll have quite the cushion.

    A lady at church is having a yard sale this Saturday and has a ton of fabric and notions. I told my mom that we have to be the very first people there so that we don't miss anything.

    Way to go on finishing the WIPS!!

    No not got facility to post pics as yet... but had a good sort through and kept a lot of florals, some plains, there was 2 big lengths of dark blue and black heavy cotton.. drill ?? we call it.. and its perfect for making bags for the caravan , so going to make a new awning pole bag, himself said he coud do with a few new bags for his odds and ends. so going to do that today.. it will use up some.

    My husband has no concious!!! he came home last night and the dining room looked like a sale room!! and despite asking him for shelving... its still not' materialized' if you excuse the pun!! I get so frustrated when doing any sewing as I have to go through all the boxes and baskets stacked up to find what I need...

    Just makes me soooooooooooooooooo annoyed with him :evil:

    Better you should vent your anger here where we understand than yell at him :evil: cause you can bet your sweet patootie he won't 'get it' :?: Sometimes the men in our lives do the sweetest things, and other times they make us wonder what we ever saw in them in the first place. Fortunately, most of the time for me at least, the sweeter outweighs the rest. And when it doesn't, I try to firmly bite my tongue! Doesn't always work, though :evil:
