So many projects buzzing around my head.....

.......that I don't know where to start. Do you ever do that? I want to make a Carpenter's Star quilt for mom for her birthday next May. I know I need to get that started. I have pulled the fabric. Does that count? LOL
I recently won a Bento Box pattern and I'm itching to start on that. I bought a bunch of fat quarters at Joann's last weekend to add to my collection. I actually went back the next day to get a pair of Gingher scissors and bought about 12 more lighter colored fq. (grin)
I also picked up these fabrics, the fabric that looks like boards for my future 'When Nature Calls' quilt, and the butterflies because I thought it was beautiful. I just couldn't resist it.
I would love to get the top done on my Trip around the World quilt. I have a big tote bin of flimsies just waiting to be quilted. I need to create a pattern for a quilt for my niece for her wedding Oct. 2013. I have numerous BOMs in the works. EEEHHHH! It is all getting so overwhelming. LOL So what do I do? I pull a panel that I won a couple of years ago, played around in EQ7, till I came up with a pleasing design to add to the panel, and got it all cut out. It is sitting here waiting on me to quit playing on the computer and get to sewing on it. LOL I haven't taken any pictures of the panel yet. I will when I get the blocks sewn around it. Quilting is what I do for fun, so why get all stressed about it? I have decided to just work on what I feel like working on, whenever the urge hits me. LOL

So, how did you like this whole rambling post about nothing really? LOL Thanks for visiting. Please come again. Have a great day.

I like your fabrics for the Carpenter's Star quilt. I definitely think picking out the fabric is a major part of making the quilt...that and getting everything cut out. Love the fabric that looks like a board and all the fun FQ you picked up. Have fun with all these projects and don't stress---it really is for fun! Nola

Looks like you got some great fabric! I'd love to make a carpenter's star someday. It's on my list! :0)

"quilting is for fun".....yes, that's right, no stressing allowed - why do we do that to ourselves! I'm guilty too, lol.

With all those choices, there shouldn't be any stress at all. Just go with the flow.
How are you enjoying those scissors? I bought a little pair of Ginghers with pretty decorated grips at the quilt show. They cut well even left-handed.

I can sure identify with you on being overwhelmed, Winona... I always have projects I want to try swirling around in my head. (And believe me, it can't hold too much stuff swirling at once. *HA*)
Once I thought I was going to be really smart and industrious and make a list of all the projects I wanted to do and in the order I wanted to do them in.. have you ever done that before? Well, don't~ I took one look at the list and felt REALLY overwhelmed then! *haha*
I love your new fabrics~ the butterflies are so pretty. And I would love to have some new scissors... James tried to sharpen my fabric cutting scissors and I wouldn't want to hurt his feelings but they don't cut very good anymore. *Sigh* Oh well, at least he tried, I guess... *grin*
Hope you have a wonderful weekend... I can't wait to see what your next project is.

It's been a while since visiting with you; enjoyed your "rambling", and I like your attitude about quilting because it's what you do for fun; me too!

Maybe if we draw numbers for the next project~would it work?
