Time Flies

Wow. It's scary how quickly time can get away from you. I haven't been feeling very motivated these days. Work has gotten crazy busy and chaotic. Plus, packing and moving has started to take over the house. This is making it a little harder to carve out quilting time.

Even with all that, I managed to finish the top for mormor's blommar. Plus! I borrowed a digital camera and once I translate the instructions (they're all in Swedish, yup, long story) I'll be able to download the pictures. I've got one of my current sewing area. All the sewing room makeovers have before pictures so I figured everyone could see the living room/kitchen/desk area. :) And one of mormor's blommar.

Right now I'm on a ssssslllooowwww course. The information will be useful but they could up the course pace several degrees.

First! I got my very first comment! From Dee. Hi Dee.

She asks why do we need to limit UFOs? I guess we all have our limits and while it's good to discover them we shouldn't hide behind them. I have limits on the number of UFOs I can handle for a few reasons. Mainly space. (Both physical and creative) If I have UFOs taking up storage space I have less room for fabric. Plus when I go to sew, I see the UFOs around and they're talking to me. Telling me that they're projects I started and need to finish. If I have too many, they stop talking and start yelling. When all the shoulds are drowning out the creativity; that prevents me from starting something I'm inspired to do .

Plus, I just love the sense of accomplishment when I finish something. :)

It's March already. Wow. February flew by. I'm trying to decide if March came in like a lion or a lamb. It's snowing outside and has been pretty steady all day, but it's only -9 (Celsius). So, it's a tough call. I'll choose lion, just because I want spring to show up early this year. :)

Well, I didn't finish anything I was hoping to do this past month, but did taking on some unexpected projects. Most notably, buying a house. Yeah!!

I'm almost finished the top of Mormor's blommar and just finishing the binding on the snails trails quilt, so I'm adding another project to the list for March. Dolls! I wasn't going to make anything for my cousin's kids when I go to visit them, but then I saw this pattern... Another project is born.

Plus! I'll be picking up the digital camera either today or tomorrow, so pictures should be coming soon.
