Total slacker

So these last few months not only have a been a total slacker on the whole blogging front, but I have also been a total slacker on the whole quilting thing. If you missed the picture of my craft room from my post yesterday, here is the disaster I have created with my oh so busy life and my total slacking.

Craft room exploded

If we take a closer look you can see I did accomplish a few things. I finished two bee blocks late both for my Sunday Morning Quilt bee.

The first was giant. It was ok, but it just showed me no matter how cute I think ticker tape quilts are I will never be making one for myself.

The second one, she asked for blues and yellows... These were the only ones I could find in my stash. I finished this one on time, but it is still sitting in my pile to mail.

To be mailed

Yes all of this is a month or more late into the mail. Some of those are fat quarters I owe for a swap I was in.

Plus I still need to finish one more block for that bee. Naughty bee mate that I am.

Oh and I totally didn't tell you all that I won a silhouette, seriously how could I not share such exciting news as that.

I also finished a commissioned quilt. I will share more about that later. I think this is enough for now. I am hoping that admitting I have had a problem will be the first step to solving it, because if I don't start quilting again, I will continue to be stressed and I will never finish the million and one projects I have.

  1. your life sounds crazy busy! It really is okay to just be a slow sewer and a slow blogger - just work on a project you love and don't give yourself deadlines :-)

  2. Jenniffier, I thank you for posting the pictures of the sewing room! This is so the reality we mostly do not share with others ( especially outside the quilting community) . I showed the pic from last post to my parents to make them understand what kind of mess I tend to get myself ( and my sewing room) into.... I said: "Look, it is like this, but way worse!" They could not understand it... Well I surely know what a sewing room like yours feels like! I do not mind cleaning my sewing room. Strange how I really dislike cleaning ANY other room in my house, LOL! When the room is clean again, I start getting it messy again by pullong fanrics for new projects. Circle of sewing?
    Bye bye
