    There's a little screen that pops up all the time on the lower right side of the screen that I turn off as soon as it pops up. I'll have to see what the site is. I HATE IT!

    There's a pop up blocker on your computer. You can turn off those pop ups and not be bothered by them.

    Hey quilters, I am always with each one of you who have thought that this Quilting Board has sown seeds for us all to keep on doing quilts. I too wish always that I had 200 years ti live on, to complete each pattern!!

    Thanks for all your ideas. :lol:

    You have no idea how many quilt books I have purchased, but never opened. How much fabric I have purchased but never touched - how many UFO's I have that I have lost interest in.

    1 - I have decided this year, I am going to unbury my sewing room - had to declutter my spare room so my inlaws could spend Christmas Eve at our house - so naturally - as you do - I uncluttered that room into my already cluttered sewing room
    2 - Organize books, fabric, sewing supplies
    3 - Cut out and sew at least 5 hrs a week.
    4 - Finish all my UFO's or just pass them on to a new home

    I WILL DO THIS - I WILL DO THIS - I hope

    If I turn the pop-up blocker off, something else I need gets turned off too. Some of my games won't work.

    If I win the lottery, we'll have to have a week long retreat someplace fun----------and really learn from each other.

    That sounds like me with quilt books and magazines. I looked at them one day and decided if I made just one quilt from each of the books and magazines I have, I would not live long enough to get one from each done. Decisions,decisions, decisions......

    LOL, just a hundred? What's holding you back?

    Way too many wonderful picutues on this board.
    I was guestimating...wasn't going to actually count :lol: I also have a 4" binder FILLED with patterns. I rather like the idea of putting all the names of the quilts in a jar and just pick my next project that way. How long will it take me to write down the names of them all to put in the jar? :?

    I have the same problem. I see blocks I haven't tried before and just started 3 different pinwheel tops (3 different size pinwheels) just cause I loved the fabric and forgot where I left off. I'm overwhelmed with ideas too and people I want to make a quilt for. No time to do any of it. I keep thinking I need to focus on one until it is finished, but I love learning new techniques and new blocks. What is a girl to do?!

    Oh, you mean like the tile floor or the window in the community center? or the pattern the silhouette of a tree makes across the snow or the huge picture of a giraffe and how perfectly the shapes of the spots appear...... on and on and on?

    I think I figured out the answer for what next! Last night I was dreaming about a way to do a scrappy quilt.

    DRAT------------HIT SEND TOO FAST

    It will be called BUTTONS & BOWS, 8 blocks wide by 10 blocks long, and sent to a female soldier at Walter Reed. It's a folded block I learned to make on a Nancy Zieman show. I'm going to set the blocks together with a black or very dark gray tone on tone.

    A little bit at a time------------since it is going to be a scrappy quilt. I expect to be done this time next year

    I was at my LQS yesterday, and I wish I'd brought my camera!
