Has This Ever Happened To You?

You go into the sewing room....

Ok, right there, except for crafter extraordinaire daughter Sarah and quilter extraordinaire neice Karen, I just lost all my family and most of my IRL friends....

You have a quilt ready to be quilted - and I mean READY - the bobbins are filled, the design had been decided, quilt & back have been pressed and are ready to load on frame.

You have a quilt top in progress with the next pieces sitting right there at the other sewing  machine and the fabric for the next pieces to be cut laid out on the cutting table....

Now I lost all the uber-organized sewers that will only work on one project at a time (how do you do it?)....

You have other projects lined up to be next - fabric is right there next to the cutting table....

And you find yourself cutting and sewing with fabric that you haven't contemplated using since you bought it. Making something you had no plans to make, no deadlines, no purpose, but doing it anyway.


Well, I got it out of my system. 
Back to the teapot blocks. 

But the Moda Peace On Earth charm squares keep calling too. 

What to do, what to do....

Are you a REAL quilter if it doesn't happen to you? I hardly ever have it NOT happen, that's why my studio is always such a disaster! I think you're perfectly normal. Have fun with those charm squares!

Love the bag, Love the quilt and love the story about your jeans. I think that you should write a book in your spare time.

Very cute. Can't say this has ever happened to me regarding sewing, but I've certainly experienced it in other realms!
