Once again, my Quilting ADD has taken over

20170309_203711_resized_1Well, once again, my quilting ADD took over.  Worked on a multitude of projects instead of spending all my time on my one monthly project.  I did spend a little time on it, but I made the mistake of doing a little shopping, which makes my mind wander to other projects.

I bought some lovely fabric (you can never have enough).  So, I find the cutest dog fabric on the clearance rack.  As the crazy dog lady, it was my duty to purchase some.  Then I found some Pepsi fabric.  As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it (I will get to that later).  Then, I found some giraffe fabric.  Since my daughter and I (and a lot of other crazy people) have been watching/waiting for April the giraffe to have her baby.  I will likely make some sort of Giraffe applique and save it for my daughter.

So, about that Pepsi fabric.  I have to admit, my one vice is Diet Pepsi.  I am also a quilter that takes her handwork projects (Hospital Hexies) in a non-quilters bag.  So, I decided that I would make a bag to carry my projects around when I am working mobile.  I mean I am a quilter after all, so I think it is appropriate that I have a quilted bag.  Duh.  So, I will use that Pepsi fabric to make a bag.  I am sort of winging it (no pattern).  But, it will be quilted.  And yes, I have already started it. I should have been working on my “One Monthly Goal” project.

I almost forgot about the Fruit Loop Fabric.  It was just plain old cute.  I also have a Jar UFO that needs finished and a jar of fruit loops sounded awesome.

In other news, one of my fellow bloggers, Mary Puckett at Zippy Quilts, has included me in the “One Lovely Blog Award” chain.  As I discovered a few years ago, this isn’t a contest, it is a way for bloggers to promote each other, and I’m all about that.  You can see Mary’s blog at https://zippyquilts.wordpress.com/this-blog-and-me  Thanks, Mary!

The rules for the One Lovely Blog chain are:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and leave a link to their blog.
  • Post about the award.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate at most 15 people.
  • Tell your nominees that you have nominated them.

I’m nominating the following bloggers because I like what they do.

Kathy Nida@https://kathynida.com/ – Kathy makes the most fascinating Art quilts and she always has photos of her dogs with her blog posts (love that)

Susan @DessertSky Quilting – https://desertskyquilts.wordpress.com/ – Susan manages to get so much accomplished, I am jealous.  She is also one of the nicest people you could ever know.

Tracy @Its a TsweetDay –  https://itsatsweetsday.blog/category/quilts/ – Her blog is just so pretty.  I am jealous

And now for 7 facts about me, which is part of the deal:

  1. I am a widow, twice
  2. I am the crazy dog lady (I have 4)
  3. I have spent nearly 30 years working in IT,so I am a nerd
  4. At 52, I have a 12 year old (Woops)
  5. I live in the country but work in the city
  6. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis (which sucks)
  7. I worked as professional cake decorator in college.

Happy Quilting

Happy Sewing

Treasure your Family

  1. Love your new fabric! Here’s a tip from Flylady.net. Spend 15 minutes a day on your monthly project, then if you want to work on something else go for it and feel good, or keep working on your monthly project. I know. It doesn’t sound like much, but 15 minutes of focus, a lot can happen! Good luck!

  2. You hit my nail on the head! My ADD is severe and not limited to quilts either. I am also a yarn addict (so imagine my guest room closet – Ha!) Thank you for following IHQ’s blog – we are a small guild in a small town and that is how we like it 😉
