Quilt With Us

you know you have too much stuff in your quilting room when you have been looking for a project for months then discover it's been under your nose the whole time.  Today i was cutting strips for a quilt project and was putting some away for another time when a certain container caught my eye. Lo and behold it's the very project I could not find for many months, just sitting there laughing at me, or so it seemed. Guess it is time for spring cleaning and sorting for my sewing room or maybe later. Quilting is so much more fun than cleaning.

I feel your pain. Just a few weeks ago I decided to sort through the stuff in my closet. I found at least three projects I forgot about. It is a hazard of the quilting game.

I spent a day last week to clean more on my sewing room and my husband even helped. I guess his help was just the answer, for he gave me another place to store the batting. I did not realize how much space batting can take up.

Been there, done that!  Drives me crazy.

I can relate.  I got a request to make a fabric bowl.  I started looking for my book and could not find it in either book case.  I went over to the house thinking I may have left it there. Nope, not there. I was really mad at myself as I sometimes throw or give away things I later want.  I ended up tearing both my book cases apart. I found the book and got my book cases organized. But it took me all morning.

I believe we have concluded that we have all been there.  I sort of clean around things; if it's not visible to the naked eye, it doesn't need to be cleaned!

Several years ago I wanted to give my friend Lou Ann some fabric I had that matched some she needed to finish a project.  Had just seen it a couple of days before, but darned if I could find it.  Of course, a couple of days after she finally found some elsewhere, I lifted up something and there was that fabric.  If it had been a snake it would have bit me while I was looking for it.

Amen, Sister, to the cleaning!  Glad the lost is found.

It's good to know I'm not the only one. It would be awful lonely otherwise.much better to have nice company.

I have been looking for a project I began in the last decade.  I am pretty sure I know where it is, but it will take moving a number of other piles of fabric and projects to get to that area. Last month, while sorting and putting away somethings to get closer to it, I found another project that needed to be completed.  So I stopped looking to complete that one.

Cleaning?  It has been on my list for over a year now.
