    ....start a quilt for a raffle or a gift, and after the top is done I don't give it...I keep it and make another!

    . . . start another project when I already have too many going. I'm fighting with myself right now to keep from starting one or two more. Only have nine right now on the top of the "got to get these finished" list. Plus a few more I've put aside indefinitely.

    I didn't change my thread color and sewed a black fabric with light thread; it showed. I got out a black permanent marker and colored the thread.

    I'm ashamed to admit that - I burned dinner while sewing on a quilt.

    I start another project before I get the one I'm working on finished. The corner is full of UFO's.

    Have not dusted the house in 5 weeks because it will cut into my quilting time. I asked everyone not to touch the "faux finish" on the tables and floors

    Part of my yard is fenced for my 2 fur babies so no problem there. If I'm expecting fabric or something in my mail box, I put on my jeans and go down the hill...otherwise it can wait until I find a stopping point....or sneak down in my jammie bottoms and tee shirt since I'm very rural....
