Default I am ready.....

I don't know about all of you, but I am ready to shut myself in my sewing room and hibernate! I haven't had time with the busy Christmas season to do much sewing and I am having withdrawl symptoms!

I am with you! Would love to have a sew-a-thon with no interruptions! I have so many UFO's that I would love to tackle and work on. So glad the busy time of year is over. And-----Christmas comes on the same day every year and I seem to be always behind on shopping and wrapping!!!!!

I'm with you also! Both my husband and I have been really ill with a virus and my sewing was put on hold. Today, I feel great and am heading for the sewing room as soon as the cleaning service leaves. I need to make a quilt sandwich of a quilt that I had planned to give my sister for Christmas. Hopefully, I can start quilting it this afternoon. It will be so good to be sewing again!

I agree! I'm ready for some healthy doses of sewing and quilting time. Catch up on a few things!

Me too. After all the dinners, I could not sleep. So what was on my mind? What should I start quilting? UFOs? Nope, let's start something new, something easy just to get it out of my system and then onto something that takes more concentration. Hubby is off fishing so I have the day to myself. Laundry and cleaning are done and I am off to the play room.

I feel the same way! Wish I could sew too, but we moved last month and are in temporary housing for the next year or so which means I will lose all that creative time. I couldn't find my sewing machine if my life depended on it!

I'll just visit here and look at photos of all the pretty projects!

I'm with all of you. I've been quilting in the great room, waiting for the family room to be finished with my sewing station, cutting island, etc - for two years! Had to put everything away for the Holidays so haven't done any sewing. DH has the electrician & plumber lined up to finish the family room and he ordered the formica for the top of my stuff. Hopefully it won't be long!
