    I am currently working on...all at the same time:

    Hand-quilting a twin-size nine-patch
    Piecing a full-size civil war quilt
    Piecing a lap-size diary quilt
    Slowly piecing a...not sure the size...scrappy crazy quilt
    Planning a grandmother's flower garden

    I have all of this going on at the same time!!! I have to be crazy insane...someone stop me! lol

    Gee, I can't help any! I would just enable!
    I have a King size broken dishes quilt started on my design wall.
    I have a pinwheel lapquilt in progress.
    What did I do? I started an Autumn Lap quilt and would like to get it finished by the 15th!. In between this, I made up 2 quick baby quilts, 6 burp cloths, a couple of potato bags. Also bought all the material for a man quilt for my boss for Christmas! Starting next week on this!
    Yea, I am no help!

    Well, now I do not feel so bad :lol:

    I have a Christmas Throw in progress
    Trying to learn Applique while using my kids as the beneficiaries of the results (Design in progress)
    Table Topper waiting for me to finish the FMQ
    A butterfly quilt waiting for my first attempt of Applique to be finished
    At least 5 to 6 tops waiting to be FMQ (Nothing bigger than a lap quilt)
    A couple small bags cut out but not yet started to sew
    Finally, wanting to get some Mug Rugs done for Christmas

    Sounds like we work a lot a like in the Quilting world. At least I am enjoying every minute of the craziness that I have caused myself :-D

    Almost forgot the quilt that I have on a temporary design wall that is folded up at the moment. Need to bring that out to make sure I like the layout of the fabric.

    I used to be one of those people that started one project and worked at it until it was finished. Somehow when I wasn't looking my project list ran to having 4 lap quilts (Christmas gifts) and a baby quilt that needs to be done in the next three weeks. Don't even know how big a lap quilt or baby quilt should be. Well quess we have to just keep pluging along. Good luck all in finishing your lists. BrendaK
