You Know You're a Quilter

or maybe you just know you're crazy when go on a shop hop on Saturday morning and choose a pattern for a quilt, gather the fat quarters and fabric for border and background at one shop, purchase the backing at another, begin cutting immediately after completing another quilt and work on it until 11:00, get up at 6:30 and sew all day in your pajamas until 20 minutes before it's time to take said quilt to the LQS where you have an appointment with the longarm quilter so the quilt can be done in time to cover your oldest son on Christmas morning. I didn't stop to eat (and if you knew me in real life, you'd realize how obsessed I must have been) and only took time to brush my teeth, get dressed, comb my hair and put on a little mascara before heading to the shop. On the way there, I realized I had forgotten my camera so I don't even have a picture to show you until the quilt comes back to me. By the way, the other quilt I finished yesterday was for my daughter's Christmas present. Fortunately, the one for my middle son has been done for about a month or I would be totally insane by now.

Shop hop was fun but I'm exhausted! I'll have a full report and pictures for you tomorrow. Now I'm off to clean up the sewing area, clear the table for the next project and find places for my new stash.


  1. You missed a great class at guild yesterday but now I understand why we didn't see you!You must have been in your own little frenzy! I kind of love days like that but they usually only happen when my husband is away. Can't wait to see your pix.

  2. I'm pretty sure that's just plain crazy! Lucky kids.

  3. Wow! It sounds like a brilliant day, though. I can't wait to see pics!

  4. That was a great story. Just like a quilter! Shop hops are a blast, but you need a few days to recover after!! LOL!
