I Think I Need An Intervention!

Oh, my!  I seriously think I need a quilting intervention.  Someone needs to sit me down and tell me that adding to my already long list of things that I need to finish is not a good way to get my list completed.  At the rate I am going my list will be longer at the end of the month than it was at the beginning!  

It all started by simply going to my job this morning.  I only work one day a week at the quilt shop.  How dangerous could that be?  In my case - way too dangerous!  If you technically want to be totally honest, it started last week when I brought the Star Shuffle quilt to the quilt shop.  At that point my boss fell in love with it and decided to order some table runner patterns.  Now I am making a sample, as well as teaching it as a class.  What?  How did I manage to volunteer to do this?  I truly am my own worst enemy!

The tale gets even better, though...the next thing I knew I was looking through a box of fabric she was cleaning out of her sewing room.  Free fabric?  Well, that's even better than my employee discount!  I came home with some gorgeous floral flannel as well as a mix of beautiful romantic florals.  I didn't realize until I got home that now I have two more projects to work on.  Well, I suppose I can feel good that I only took a couple of skinny packets out of that box of patterns and books.

On the happy side, I finished quilting the Blue and White stars today!  I don't believe that I did have a plan for the binding at this point and will need to buy some fabric to finish it up - I think I am going to put one of those two color bindings on it.  I haveplenty of the accent color and just need some dark blue to go with it.  I am excited to finally get the quilting finished so I can baste the next one - I really am addicted, aren't I?

But, then again, I wouldn't have it any other way!
