  5. H-E-double hockey sticks!! LOL, I haven't heard that in a while :-)
    At least you have things sorted into neat piles and know what needs to be done. I'm not quite that organized!

  7. You are definitely not alone, I have 5 quilts that need to be quilted and about 10 quilts that are in the put together stage. Too much going on with my boys. I need a sew retreat.

  8. ::snicker:: If you could see my stacks, you would feel a lot better about yours. ;D The important thing is that progress happens!

    You have some gorgeous WIPs, by the way!!

  9. I have 5 to quilt, 4 finished to take to the Red Cross, 5 to piece, and I just started two more. Yup, I have sad little lingering piles too and currently not a whole lot of motivation to do anything about it. :(

  12. makes my '5 to finish' pil seem rather, well, pathetic in comparison!lol!

  13. oh my gosh, you're not alone... ;)
    But add to it a million stacks of other things too, and assorted trains, dinosaurs, burp rags and the like... and then it'll feel like home. ;) And good luck!

  14. pretty piles! I have that same stack waiting to be quilted - all sandwiched and everything, just can't seem to find the time to quilt them (doesn't help that I keep starting new ones!) Wishing you a very productive weekend my friend!! :)

  15. To be honest I don't have stacks like this but I think I'm a little bit of a freak about only working on one thing at a time. Just think of all the show and tell you'll have for the next guild meeting, I can't wait!

  16. My husband would describe my sewing room as "stacks of shit" so don't feel bad. And mine isn't even just stuff to finish, it's fabrics, papers, threads, you name it.

  17. I yearn to just get one thing halfway finished so I can finish it! If I could only quit my day job so I could fulfill my passion. I shoulda married in to wealth.

  18. Dude...

    Quilt folded on the back of the couch, binding is half way done, just need to do the hand stitching. Been there for a fortnight.

    Ironing board is out with a completed quilt top on it. Been there for a week, I've been ironing other things on top of it.

    Coffee table is covered in scraps and flying geese. Underneath coffee table some plastic stash tubs. Dining room table is covered in two piles, one of clothes to alter, another of fabric to make into new garments.

    You are not alone! :)

  19. Oh no... Not alone!! I have 12 quilt tops that need quilting & 3 that need binding. I did finish the binding on 2 baby quilts over the weekend (but we won't discuss how the baby is already 1 month old!!)

  20. Are you kidding? I've got all kinds of stacks of shit to do--quilts, books, dishes, beating the kids. oops, strike that last one. I'm feeling generous today.

    list. prioritize. conquer!

  21. I have so many stacks of shit, they cover the floor the ironing board the cutting table...uffff da. I'm thinking you have more stacks that you are not showing us! Those top two quilts in the 'to be bound' pile look so cool.

  22. I so can relate to your delima.
    Isnt it a burden we suffer. Ha, ha.
    Our small quilt group makes quilts for foster kids. That means my personal projects wait for a time that the kids do not need. Then I pull out either the oldest project, or the one with a timeline requirement. Then my husband says we need another quilt for our bed, or the couch because its winter, or some other occasion.
    In my head I think where and when can I fit this into the mix. And we do because its what we do.
    Be happy that this is the burden we are gifted with.
    Happy quilting to you...K

  23. You're not the only one. I've had shit laying around for months.

  24. Holy crap!

    Start with sewing on the binding and leaving the hand-finishing for tv breaks and visiting with the family who almost never sees you because you're chained to the sewing machine muttering about feather quilting and free-motion in a Gollum-like voice obsessed with finishing the stacks...

  25. Do not feel bad. We are mostly all out of control.
    I have 33 tops that need quilting,(down from 53 last year). 10 that need binding, 7 of them have the binding machine stitched, just waiting for some hand stitching. I also have 21 UFOs. This doesn't include stitching projects, knitting projects, and the mountain of unstarted projects stashed in every nook and corner.
    I need a nap. Or an assistant. Or an intervention. LOL

  26. Well, I just feel so bad for ya, I wouldn't want someone as swet as you to feel so stressed, so I'll take that Munki Munki or AMH quit top off your hands, and that would be one less to have to deal with... te-hee-hee...

    I am sure you are in good company. I think we can't really call ourselves quilters without stacks like that, although I wish I did have as many as far along as yours. To me that all looks like good progress! Glass half full, and all that!! Enjoy your busy weekend.

  27. I feel ya sister! I have a whole bunch of crap in piles waiting to be completed. I have finally come to the conclusion that I don't have the time to quilt everything myself and am looking for a long armer to help a girl out.
    I have 3 quilt tops to be quilted. One halfway quilted. And countless other 1/2 finished projects!
