Can I Stop Cleaning?

In two weeks I'm going to a 4 day quilt retreat. Invariatebly, I take way more than I can accomplish, but I like a variety of projects so I don't get bored. Not finishing what I take is not an issue for me (if it was, my UFO list wouldn't have 33 partially completed tops on it). Anyway, this year I'm going to focus on borders. - Note to self, find knee pads for crawling around on cement floor.

However, working or borders all weekend will get boring, so I'm going to take atleast one PIG (project in grocery sack). I easily have a dozen to choose from, but decided I wanted to work on Springtime at Heritage which is the kit pictured above.

I bought it in Septemeber and it's been kicking around in my sewing room ever since. The only problem was I couldn't find it.

My sewing room is divided into two main spaces -- a u-shaped area with my personal computer, work computer and sewing table and the rest of the room where I hope someday to have two casual chairs and an occassional table. Or where I can set up a couple of tables and have friends over for a sew-a-thon. On the wall are shelving units with my fabric, completed tops, ufos and pigs. That's the only area which is really well organized. The u-shaped area is messy but functional and the other half of the room needs cleaning.

So, for the last couple of days I've been "cleaning at" the other side of the room a couple of minutes at a time looking for the fabric kit. Tonight I finally found it. So can I stop cleaning?

Oh, click here for the quilt pattern I'm using.


  1. I'm always game to stop cleaning. Any excuse is good enough for me.

  2. Oh, what gorgeous colors! I'll get to see it being made up in person when you come to the St. Jude's retreat. I'm excited!
