I can never seem to do just one thing at a time. Seriously, I never read just one book at a time. Currently, I am reading Atlas Shrugged, The Atonement and Lord of Misrule.
Also, I never just watch television. I always do something else along with it. It might be planning the monthly menu, perusing a magazine or one of my current books, binding a quilt, or any one of a myriad of other tasks. It's so bad, my son Kade once accused me of listening to (as opposed to watching) T.V. He's right. I usually miss the important parts of every show because I am focusing on my other project. Then I drive everyone crazy asking, "What happened?! What happened!?"
I think the kinder, gentler term for this behavior is "multi-tasking" but I tend to label it a.d.d.
I'm always telling people, I have (fill in the blank) a.d.d. I hope that's not too politically incorrect.
Lately, my "quilting a.d.d." is in overdrive. So much so, that I haven't had time to blog.
So, buckle up baby, this is going to be a looooooooooong post.
I love how this quilt turned out. However, I did get bored with the seemingly endless pebble quilting. So, right in the middle of that project, I started working on a couple of others.
this Flickr photo and remembered that I had a bunch of these strips left over from a previous quilt.
My nephew and his wife are due to have their third child next month, so I began work on a baby quilt for them. A while back, I found the pattern at the Moda Bake Shop site and I've been dying for an excuse to make it.
Using published patterns is something I do regularly. However, I really want to improve my own design skills. So, while I have been working on all these other projects, I have also been working on a couple of ideas.
My inspiration came via a couple of magazine photos I clipped.
Well, that's what I've been up to lately. Now, I'm off to read one of my books and listen to the television.
