    This makes me feel much better. I thought I was just lazy, or procrastinating.

    im finishing my avatar block with handquilting.
    I started a pinwheel tablecloth for my sister, but set it aside.
    Just finished a series of cathedral window samples, and want to do one more.
    I have a sampler quilt planned and shopped for, but haven't started.
    But I want to work the sampler before I start my big Irish quilt.
    But then, I may do the small Irish quilt first.

    Hmmm, decisions, decisions. I won't even mention the ones I have in my head.

    Crazy?: yes.
    Alone?: no.

    I myself am trying to finish five quilts before Christmas...which ain't looking so good.

    You are not crazy, with so many projects you don't get bored and I'm sure you have fun being creative with all of your projects

    Oh You are in the wrong place for help here. We are all enablers. We all need help ourselves. I am a fabric addict, myself. I have to touch fabric alot and I think I have more goinig than you do.

    After reading all of the above, I can't believe I have always considered myself a "loner" -- Looks as if I'm anything but. I'm in the middle of a very large crowd, it seems.

    Nothing more soothing to the soul than just sitting in front of a sewing machine and quietly sewing the afternoon away. But I also jump from project to project. I do eventually finishing most of them, mostly. I do get bored with something I've been working on especially a large quilt and nearly have it finished. But then, I get bored and pick up something new to get enthusiastic over - for a while anyway. However, this habit has given me a huge scrap pile and a fantastic stash. There's good can come of it, girls. LOL

    My Mother would have said: "Dear, don't you think you should finish one thing before you go on to the next?" That's just the way she thought, and the way she worked. She was a great seamstress, and she quilted (one at a time).

    My Great Grandmother, who taught me more about quilting than anyone else, would have said: "You go Girl!" Honestly. She was like that. A simply awesome woman. And I must take after her because there isn't room here for my list of current projects, and never mind the ones piled up in my head!

    You go Girl!

    I started a counted cross stitch of the last supper in 1991. There were 47 colors or blends. I called it my worry piece. I would work on it until I started making mistakes then I'd snuggle up in the recliner with my ripple crochet throw I was also working on because I didn't have to look at it to work it.
    I like to have something easy to do when I'm to mentally drained to concentrate on 22 count cloth. ;)

    No help here either. I currently have the following in progress
    Piecing the 108x108 Civil War Quilt (I'm taking this as a class and should be finished piecing in December)
    Piecing the 97x112 Thimbleberries Quilt (also should have pieced some time in December)
    Hand quilting a 80x95 mystery quilt from last year that my LQS did (about 1/3 of the way done)
    Pieicing a pineapple quilt that I can't remember the size it will be
    Appliqueing the Hop to It (by Edita Sitar) that I am making larger that the pattern
    Appliqueing a Autumn Reflection wool wall hanging
    Paper Peicing Carol Doak's Twisting Mystery wall hanging that she is doing on her Yahoo group
    Just finished pieicing this years mystery quilt but still needs to be quilted

    And I'm sure I'm forgetting something. LOL

    On top of all of those projects I work full time
