    I have, at last count: one quilt I'm quilting, one I *was* quilting and put away for now, one I've pieced and got tired of looking at, a few PP blocks I want to make into a wall hanging, several tube blocks that I'm going to make into a quilt for my DD, the thread and material to do some embroidery blocks in butterflies that I really liked, and a quilt that I really messed up BADLY that I'm debating to cut up and use for other things.

    Plus, I have a 2 year old DS, a messy house, dirty laundry, a couple of house guests due next week, a mess of a computer room and my "sewing" room (the dining room) which I had all nice and neat at the beginning of the year looks like a hurricane hit it.

    So why am I sitting at the computer complaining about it all instead of doing something? Because I knew you all would understand! :)

    The only thing I am lacking is the 2 year old and it could be me you are talking about. (grin). Hang in there...some way the more important things get done and the rest will wait.

    To quote, "I need six more hands and two more heads "

    As they say, pictures please! :) Not of the house. Of you, with three heads and six more hands. I need to see if I'd like the look before I ask for the same!!

    Are you sure you're not at my house??? My dining room looks like a fabric tornado hit...My DS asked me why I don't move the fabric so he and his sister can eat at the breakfast table? I just laughed and told him because I'm in the middle of cutting stuff out. Maybe someday they can sit there and eat until then we have a perfectly good floor in the family room.

    I too have about 5 projects started and about 500 left to start.... :shock:

    Just remember there's always tomorrow and as long as no one has to run around naked...you're good.

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Hey - if you are a quilter and your house is picked up, the laundry done and the dishes are done, then you apparently don't have enough projects started.

    I forgot one more- I have the material cut for a quilt I'm making for Mother's Day. But hey, that's a couple months away, right?
