And I am going into withdrawals!! :-) I have had a busy week, and just havent had any extra time! I was hoping to work on my hand-quilting project in the car over the weekend (four hour drive-each way) on our way to visit family this weekend, however, its a full size quilt and WAY TOO HOT and bulky to work on it in the car. :? Hoping that tonight I can get the treadmill time in and then have the rest of the evening to sew. Question is... do I start on a table runner kit? A flannel quilt (pretty pinks and appliqued daisy's)? Or a simple three fabric quilt? Decisions, decisions... I suppose I could work on a UFO that keeps calling my name. :)

Which would be quickest to finish?
I personally am at the point of needing a sense of completion on something...anything...quilting or not!
So that would be my thought process.

Me either. I started a new job and I am in the training period. I am exhausted when I get home and havent done any sewing because my brain is mush!

I didn't sew at all the last 2 days but it was because everything I touched got messed up and nothing was going right. I was ripping more than anything. When I have days like that it is best just to step away. Got back to it today and it's going much better.

I have withdrawals too when I dont get to sew. If I cant get in there to sew, I pull out my GO and cut fabric in the livingroom so I can be with my family lol...Or I will pull my notebook out with all my patterns and go through them, or I look at what magazine/books I have....and finally, I get on here and look at what everyone posts LOL ;)
