Have you ever read this blog and wondered "I wonder why Sunny doesn't show us many finished quilts?" Well, I'm here today to try to explain.
I have a sickness, but I'm not sure of it's scientific diagnosis. I want to (and often do) start every project that interests me!! But then I find something else that interests me before that project is completed. Part of the problem is that I spend too much time here:
So for all of you who are on my reading list, or anywhere else in blogland for that matter - you are to blame. Where do you think I find most of my inspiration, after all???
I also spend too much time here:
Now see what you made me do? I just wanted to take a picture of quilting books on Amazon, and one is coming to live with me! It really is a sickness.
You have to understand, it's not just quilting that I'm in love with. I've also rediscovered my passion for cross stitching, and now I'm learning embroidery. And let's not forget crocheting, but it's lower on the list.
I work in healthcare, and a nurse recently suggested that I may have ADD. I had never considered that - but perhaps I do! It happened again last night. I sat down to work on a cross-stitch ornament that I had started. (My back has been bothering me, so I'm just working on small hand projects right now.) I had an inspiration, so I put that down, and made a couple of prototype ornaments out of hexies. The jury is still out on them. So then I started a NEW cross stitch project!
Whenever I start a new project, I make up a little project kit with all my threads and a pair of scissors along with the pattern. There are a LOT of project kits around here. This way I can grab something whenever I'm going anywhere that will involve "wait" time. As a sideline, I've also been purchasing lots of cute little embroidery scissors. Maybe that will be another post some day.
I have tons of embroidery floss from my earlier days, but I almost always have to purchase a couple of colors that I'm missing. And you know what that means - - retail therapy! Last night I stopped for ONE spool of quilting thread, and well, let's just say that was a very expensive spool of thread! And now I have to go back because I started yet another project!
I also make hexagon flowers each week for One Flower Wednesday, and I exchange hexie flowers in the Inchy swap.
And let's not forget the yoyo's.
After seeing all these projects, I think I'm inspired to get to work! See y'all around, and maybe someday I'll even complete a quilt again.
Counting my blessing...and my projects....Sunny
