    in order to get everything you want to do - completed....

    I'm guessing if I could make it to 500 I may have just enough time....BARELY!!!!!!!

    Sorry, no time to die. Too much to do!

    There may be a subconscious plan at work...

    nope, that still wouldn't be enough.

    during those 500 years you'll still see pattern, designs, fabric that inspire you to make something else.

    its a never ending cycle - we have to be immortals.

    That's me all over! Every time I see something appealing, I think, I'll never do all the ones I want.

    We seem to always find something made different. You will never get all that you like done.

    Reminds me of a Spongebob cartoon I saw yesterday. There was an old woman who was so old she was reduced to a skeleton and rode around in a wheelchair....I think even she hadn't lived long enough to get everything done she wanted to do! :)

    I have a goal that every one of my friends will have one of my quilts before I die. I keep making new friends, so I'm going to live forever! lol

    There is no amount of time that would be enough. My list of want to dos grows daily. :-D If I never looked at another pattern, i would still not live long enough to finish all that is in my "Must Make" folder :shock: :shock: Guess I had better start taking better care of myself, because I have a lot of years of quilting i need to get to! :lol: :lol:

    I would need to live forever, with the mind and body of a 25 year old. Since I'm already twice that age, I'll just have to hope that reincarnation does exist. :lol:
