    I keep telling myself that I can't start a new project until I finish my UFO's, and I started another one last night......I am a mess...I know I have 3 completed tops, 2 almost complete, and 2 where the blocks are done and I just have to sew the blocks together...and last night I started a new one.

    I am addicted.....

    I feel your pain. I have been really good about not starting too many with out finishing. I just tell myself the sooner I get this one finished the sooner I can start the next one. My husband keeps telling me "what are you making another quilt for the closet is full" lol. I just tell him he doesn't need another tool or tool box. that usually shuts him up.

    So, what's the problem? I just got my long arm up and running and wanted to practice on something. I had 2 QFK's and a jelly roll 1600 I had put together. Did all 3 of those yesterday and now don't have anything to practice on. So now I have to make more quilts. Aw shucks, do I HAVE to ?!?!? :roll: :lol: :roll: You really NEED to have several projects in various stages of completion to keep your brain active. I used to think it should be just one project at a time. How wrong I was :!: :?

    Is there such a thing as Quilter's ADD?

    If so, I think it would show itself as starting more projects than you ever finish.

    I suspect a lot of us have it. ;)
