Well, to tell sort of the truth, I have 30 bags with cloth and patterns put together. I keep going on shop hops with patterns in hand and buy the fabric for those patterns. They then go into bags and as soon as I finish one, I have all the fabric, matching thread, templates if necessary, the whole ball of wax ready to go. I have one to finish quilting and binding and one to bind and those tow are done and then I choose a bag of goodies and get going on the next one. :D :D
what is a wip ????

Have you thought about setting up an EBay business with that model?

Brilliant!

Here I thought someone should spank my hand for not finishing this top I started on months ago. It's done...but I was discouraged that the size was sooooooo much smaller than it said it would be. Even after I added the borders. I HATE MATH!!! So I cut out the pieces for 8 more blocks. Now if I could get those eight blocks sewn together now that I have them finished, I could rip the borders off (Not a big fan of frog sewing either rrrrrip it rrrrrip it), then I could add the 2 rows on, add the borders back on and then I might be done.....But I have 2 more patterns in my brain and am starting to complie fabric for them.....and schools almost out so my time is almost gone.....

Perhaps I should move to a state that has school all year????? HA

I just made the mistake of checking my list from page 1. I've managed to finish only one thing on that list. "Worse" is that I've added to it.

Somebody delete page 1 for me, will ya?
:shock: :mrgreen:

When I took up quilting about 4 years ago, I lived in a house that did not have much room for sewing ( a small nook in my kitchen). My stash all had to fit in a wicker basket/coffee table. I didn't have room for things to accumulate, so I just made a commitment that I wouldn't start anything new until I'd finished what I was working on. Even though we've retired and moved into a bigger house, I'm trying to stick to that. I took one of the bedrooms and converted it to a sewing room. I am beginning to accumulate extra blocks and squares (I sometimes change my mind mid project), but so far no UFO's. I will say my stash has exploded, however. No longer fits in my basket alone.

:lol: I think you just got elected.
Reading thru these, is real good to know that I'm not on my own and have had a good giggle too. I don't think I really want to go into the size of my problem :oops: and I don't want a cure :lol: But suffice to say that before I met my DH I lived in this house on my own for 5 years and didn't need to consider anyone elses need for space. I'm sure you can paint an appropriate picture :mrgreen:
