A bit of a Dilemma

I have been busy making Christmas stockings and working on my Dear Jane this past week. But I have been seeing quilts and bags and this and that on all the different blogs and I now have a big list of things I want to make. I see a quilt -- then I save a photo for later - then I can't remember where I saw it.

I just really want to make the Japanese quilt that is on Fairybread's blog. That is first on my list. And Passionate Quilter had the slouchy bag on her blog. So that is now on my list. And then last night I saw some patterns for a row quilts that is really scrappy, Lori Smith design, that was on Spiral's blog. I just love the row quilt, I have so many bits of fabric I think it would be a great quilt to do. So I have a few patterns to order!! There are a few other quilts that I have seen lately that are on my list as well. I love the quilt and class that Patti is working on in a class.

This blogging is creating more work for me. My sewing room is a mess of fabric and a stack of unfinished quilts. I should finish what I have started. I started a quilt for Eric two years ago - it is still at the "flimsy" stage. Poor Eric - probably has forgotten about it by now. Jim is still talking about getting his "Long Beach" quilt. The Mariner's Compass is about 3/4 finished. I am not paying an attention to the list on my sidebar that took me hours to figure out how to put up there.

P.S. I just posted this blog and the strangest thing happened . The link to Passionate Quilter got a TV guide "Days of Our Lives" advertisement. And Fairybread was completely gone. I hope the gremlins let this post work - I have to go quilt!!


  1. Ah Pam, that's EXACTLY what I said about finding these blogs, and starting my own....when do all of these other quilters/bloggers get all of their quilts done????? I just keep seeing more and more and more that I want to make....and I'm not getting anything to the "Done Done" stage! ROFL And I loved that slouch bag too....

  2. I know what you mean - too many ideas, too little time! I just clicked on your links but alas I did not find the TV guide for DOOL. They worked ok for me. I must start that quilt, but it just doesn't feel 'right' yet. Still thinking... Keep going with the stockings - it's nearly November.

    Thank you for the welcome. I do worry about my son when he is out of contact. I'm so grateful for the ease of phone calls now and the convience of instant messenger and e-mail. It helps greatly. Your Christmas stocking are beautiful! Have you hand pieced your Dresden Plate?

  4. Yup, it is a problem.......... I am struggling with my goals also. So many quilts, so little time.
