Of course, of all the things to confess on my blog, that seems to be the least of my worries. Maybe I should admit to being a bit addicted to fabric. Or I should admit that I'm turning thiry-:cough cough: next week. But no. Today, I'm jealous.
I follow a LOT of blogs. A ridiculous number, actually. Which is good when I need a quick break at work and it's easy to flip to my google reader and voila, instant quilt vacation. It's bad when I have some time off (4 days) and come back and it takes 2 days to catch up on my blog reading (I'm still not caught up!). It's even worse when reading all of those blogs makes me jealous for so many reasons.
The pictures? On my camera.
2. Projects. Oh so many projects. And not only that, but people finish things on these blogs. Yup. FINISH. See that picture up there? The selvages on the beige border indicated the fabric is from 2001. I started that nine years ago. Luckily that's my earliest start. Sadly, it's not the only one I haven't finished. Care for a photo re-cap? Of course, keep in mind that there are likely updated photos waiting on my camera.
3. Stash. Sweet baby james, there's a lot of fabric out there. I lug my fabric and notions around in one plastic under-bed storage bin. And a basket that holds scraps and the fat quarters for my next batik quilt. I covet the fabric stashes so many out there in blogland have.
4. Sewing rooms/workshops/craft rooms - whatever you want to call them, I don't have one. Again, I store my stuff in a basket and an under bed storage bin. My sewing machine lives on a collapsible table from Costco in our bonus room because it's almost out of the way. Some day, the basement will be finished, our computers will live down there and that extra spare room will be mine, all mine!!!!!!! Muahhahahahaha.
Where was I? Oh right. Jealousy.
I think I'm done being jealous for now. I have a meeting tonight so I don't think I'll get pictures uploaded tonight, but before this weekend, I really do hope to have some kind of update to share with you all about my quilting progress.
