    sew, sew, sew!

    It's 1:00 AM and I have to be at work at 7:00 - sew, sew, sew
    I just finished a project, but then I started another - sew, sew, sew
    Two hanging over chairs all sandwiched and waiting to be quilted - sew, sew, sew
    Even the dog is whining cause I'm not in bed, but I sew, sew, sew
    My back is starting to hurt, but I sew, sew, sew
    Four-year-old grandboy staying with us for the next two weeks - he's sleeping soundly now, so I sew, sew, sew

    Is this a disease? Am I obsessed or possessed?

    It's 12:at am here. You're sewing, I'm checking the Quilting Board. Whatever it is, I'd say we both have it real bad.

    Why does it say that? I edited it twice to show the zeroes. - 12:00 - Let's see if that works!

    Jan, I did a little sewing earlier in the evening. But I can't stick with it like you do. For one thing, my back bothers me if I sit at the machine too long. And for another, when I get tired I make BAD mistakes. So I've learned when to quit. It's better in the longrun since I usually end up unsewing if I try to continue when I'm tired. I'm trying to finish a quilt for my granddaughter's graduation. What are you working on?

    I understand..it is like a disease!! Many times when I get going, it is real hard to stop~!! I am constantly thinking about the next thing on my list....At least we all have something we enjoy to do, which in turn ends up making others so happy!!

    I had 8 due dates in May - worse than Christmas! Six are done and working on the last two - almost done.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    who needs sleep when we can quilt to relax! It's overrated anyway, right? If this is an obsession, don't put me in rehab!

    I've analyzed this and think we all suffer from OCQD (obsessive compulsive quilting disorder). I don't think it has a cure and hasn't been written up in any medical journals (YET). The only thing that seems to help is to quilt, quilt, quilt!

    I definitely have OCQD and the sub disorder that often accompanies it, CSB (Compulsive Stash Building). I understand they are looking into treatments for the OFP and CSC (Obsessive Fabric Petting and Chronic Scrap Collecting) but I am not willing to trust my health and well being to any of these new off the wall (I put things ON the wall- the design wall) things they keep coming up with.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I agree with you, wildyard (got one of those too, but that's another chapter). I'm not a guinea pig, so they won't be doing any of the preliminary trials on me! LOLOL! I also have OFP and CSC. Hubby caught me petting my fabric and threatened to call the dingbat police. I told him to go ahead, but my sewing machine and fabrics go with me!

    But it is a Magnificent Obsession! My husband thinks I have entered another world. He will say, "What are you looking at now?" I never thought I would be a computer-aholic, but I am a quilt-aholic and I am getting inspiration from this board.

    Wish I could. I work, work, work. But I need the money. I sew when I can. Enjoy yourself, don't worry, be happy.
