all you have to do is plan!

so I told y'all about my worries of all the incomplete projects I have on my plate.  Well with a little patient thought I have come up with a plan that has soothed my woes.  Last night I spent my time folding and organizing all my fabric. This evening I have been busy at the cutting board. That's right all the fabric for my time limited projects has been cut! And what will tomorrow hold?! That's right folks tomorrow evening I've got a hot date with my sewing machine.  I am looking forward to it!

what are your plans?

I am starting to feel...

overwhelmed!!! I'm sure we have all been there! I know I was getting everything finished for the craft fair I participated in not to long ago!  I've been resting (and cleaning up the mess) since then... however there is always another procrastinated project to take care of.. I know I know I do this to myself but I have SO much to do!! I've got to get some stocking blocks ready for a block swap at my favorite local quilt shop... I have yet to even get started... I have baby blanket to give make and give to one of my dear friends for their first child! Did I mention I've designed well.. Just part of the pattern but the part I've added is applique (which terrifies me) but I know it will be loved so I'm really excited!! I also have some home made christmas gifts to finish up.. I started them months ago but got distracted by this project or that. You know how it goes.. Basically I thought I was done with the stress.  I soon turned the corner and realized I've only piled up more.  I'm sorry for the complaining I know I've done this to myself but I also know that in the end it will all be well worth it!

dear quilting friends (especially those of you who went to market in houston) I'm on the hunt for a quilt pattern that was made up entirely of basket blocks. My neighborhood quilt shop shared their pictures and my mom fell in love with this quilt.  However nobody could remember who had made it when we asked.. I understand with all the beautiful things they saw.  So if anyone has any clue about what I'm talking about please please let me know who it was designed by.  Her birthday and christmas are coming up and this pattern would be the best gift! Even if its not ready to sell yet (we give I owe you coupons when needed) thank you for helping me by racking your brains.. So far good ol google has been fruitless.
