I'm begging....

This is for all you wonderfully talented, creative, inspiring blogging quilters out there in Blog Land! I'm begging you to stop posting tutorials, cute patterns, cute quilts, and all the other wonderful crafty stuff you do. I'm drowning in all of it. Now, I only want you to stop for a short time. Just until I try every one of those cute patterns, tutorials, etc. I'm doing my absolute best to start each and every one of them I find! I don't seem to be able to finish any, due to finding another one and immediately starting another one. Ok. I'm re-thinking this. Go ahead. I've got stash. I can do them all. Sure I can. Post away! heheheheeee!

So. Here's today newest one. Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew has this great tutorial on double hour glass blocks. I love it! I did want to use a specific size strip for mine so some math was required. It came out great though. Here's how far I've gotten on this adventure.
Craft day at church is this Saturday, and I'm going to try to go this time. I missed the last couple and I really miss those women. I want to work on my paper pieced log cabin blocks, but I didn't have an acrylic table for my smaller machine. I was talking to a friend about getting some foam and making a portable table to use. My dear husband decided he could make me one. Off to the plastic place he flew! And now, for a really cheap price, I have a portable table. Wanna see?

I love love love love the fact that my husband is handy. There's nothing he won't attack and figure out and then make. I love lighthouses and several years ago he built me a 6 foot wind chime light house for outside. He used copper pipe of different sizes for the chimes. Unfortunately, it weighted a ton and finally, after several years, it broke. But, it's repairable and boy was it cool. So...I am heading back to the many projects I have started......oh man.....

I feel the same way! I wish I could sew as fast as I can find fun things to make and do online. SO many talented and generous quilters!! Love the blocks! You are very lucky to have a handy hubby. :)

Dang, Gary rocks!!!

Talk about an instigator! You should be the one we're all looking at. I do remember having to make a jewel box because I saw it on your blog. Gary is incredibly handy and you're so lucky. One of the girls I used to sew with had a plexi-glass place build her one.

I love those blocks. I saw them the other day and wanted to start them but they are on my to make list. Wow, does Gary hire out for projects?

LM*O----you absolutely cracked me up with this post {{because it's SOOOOOOOOO TRUE!!!!!}}

I'm trying to be good, too, by finishing projects before starting new ones.....but it ain't happening!

Barb said...

Yeah well now thanks to you I want, no NEED to make some hour glass blocks. I agree with Moneik. YOU are the troublemaker here!

I have the same problem.... I want to make everything.... Maybe we can get help in Group Therapy, oh wait... that's called a quilt retreat! LOL!
Good job, Gary! Looks great!
