    Can't figure out how to edit the first post, but that first table topper is Chocolate Lollipop, not Riviera...

    All of them are very pretty but I really like the last one.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Lovely work
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    I LOVE it... it's the Ti2000. I have a cheapo Singer from Sam's, and it's like night and day. It's so easy to piece accurately, and fast, and I can actually do real quilting on it. The knee lift has changed my life...

    Wow, I feel overwhelmed having 2 projects going at once plus 1 not even started yet! How do you decide which one to work on and how long does it take you to get one finished? I hope you don't mind my questions.

    Well, most of these tops I finished and put aside because my old machine was such a pain to quilt on. Now that I have my new Juki, I can get to work finishing these. But these are just the completed tops- I have about 10 other projects in bins in various stages of piecing! It's just the way I work- I like shifting my focus often, sometimes on a daily basis. That's the way I've always been, I'm a multitasker, I have a million different hobbies ranging from sculpting, drawing and painting, to graphic design, pretty much all of the fiber arts, gaming, cooking, writing, etc. Quilting is taking most of my free time these days. I think having so much going on at once feeds my creativity- since I'm juggling so many things in my head, my brain has to be flexible and often comes up with news ways of combining ideas.

    Although.... maybe I just have undiagnosed ADD... :P
