August is almost over and still NO QUILTY PURCHASES of any kind! WaHoo for me! I'm not sure I've ever gone this long except during the times I've taken a quilting sabatical. By quilting sabatical I mean - every couple years I go thru a slump and don't do anything quilty at all. I mean barely even look at a quilt magazine!
My longest slump was just after I moved to Texas. That one lasted about a year and a half. Then I discovered YahooGroups (was Onelist back then I think?) In particular A group called One-day-quilt-frenzy. That one is responsible for a large number of my UFOs! I'm still a member but I just lurk lately. Why I don't know because I really had such a good time with those ladies. They have another frenzy coming up soon. Another Billie Lauder design as many of them have been. And if I have enough yardage in my stash when the yardage requirements go up I'll probably participate. But I will NOT buy fabric for it! The quilt pictured was one of those. Her Faux Log Cabin. I really like this quilt and don't know why I've never finished it. Such a lovely fall quilt. About twin size if I remember. I really should take this one to work to baste and maybe see if I can mush it thru my machine and just get it done!
Several times this past year I've found myself heading into a slump and have just barely managed to pull myself out. If you've read my blog for very long you can probably identify those times by my lack of posting any quilty content. LOL! And I honestly think it if hadn't been for Judy's Hour-a-Day project this month I probably wouldn't have sewn anything in the past couple weeks. So yet another advantage of blogging that I didn't list in my previous post. :-)
Okay I'm just rambling this morning. Nothing quilty gone on here this week. I've been distracted and could sooooooo easily slip into one of those slumps. But I'm not going to do that. Cause I need to sew something so I'll have something to blog about. LOL! But right now I need to get ready for work. Have a nice day!
