I admit it. I'm obsessed with quilting and there seem to be others out there with the same problem. When it gets in the way of my life, home, relationships, and business, I need to step back and regroup! There is something so soothing about pushing those fabrics through that machine and having them come out as a beautiful bag or quilt that keeps me going. Somehow I've got to get a handle on this. One thing I've noticed, I don't eat as much because I'm too busy sewing.
I need to go back to Flylady and set that timer for 15 min and attack some piles.
I covet fabrics and as an interior designer, I've always said that they multiply in the back room, at night, when you aren't looking. Then you have too many. I recently received 3 boxes of new fabrics. Oh, heavens. Please. Now, I have to go through the old fabrics to make room. And that is work.
At least I realize my addition and know I have to do something about it. What, I'm not sure. Tomorrow I am tied up all day with a sewing workshop that I'm in charge of for my guild. Then tomorrow night is a big party/fundraiser that we are going to. Hubby is not excited but I paid for tickets. I made a quilt to auciton off and it is really pretty and I want to go see how it looks and how many people want it!
When I was at my conference last week in Atlanta, I bought 2 new fringe books. I have some that are really old and want to pitch them. However, can't pitch then until I take off all the old bits of fringe, etc. to use for embellishments. At least I know how to recycle. I think I'll go and do that now, while I'm thinking about it. Later.
