Obligations Reign over Quilt Therapy

On my cutting table is two entire fat quarter bundles of “Hill Country Spring” designed by Sentimental Studios for Moda.  It’s all layed out, sorted by colorways and fabric patterns.

On my sewing table is the stack of fat quarters from the “Hartfield” fabric line, designed by Barbara Brackman for Moda. 

My week is crazy, though, since the fabrics arrived.  Monday night my husband had Scouts, so I was the ‘homework, showers, dinner’ mom … Tuesday night, DD#1 had UIL practice until 6 pm, so I had to break up our evening to go pick her up in town.  Wednesdays are always hairy, as I leave with the son-man after lunch for our day in town, running errands and attending the kids’ church class.  Tonight, I have to lead the Girl Scouts … and tomorrow, I *must* finish a web design that’s been in the works for a while.

And to top it all off, I received two finished quilts from my quilter in the mail the other day which need to be finished with binding and a label.

It’s killing me!  No time to quilt, barely enough time to design – and yet, all of this INSPIRATION is piling up in front of me!  One of these days, I swear I’m going to become the IRRESPONSIBLE woman and just shut down the computer, lock the kids out of my sewing room — and QUILT. 

For therapy, of course.
