A silly little tale for sure...many of you know I suffer from bouts of insomnia. During one of those sleepless, let me see what is on the boob tube at 3 a.m. moments I purchased a sewing machine. She who hasn't "sewn" in a very long time. (baby stuff circa 1981 - 1984) The sewing machine, at least I assumed it was a sewing machine stayed in the box in the home office for probably 3 months at which time I thought I should make sure I had indeed purchased a sewing machine...breathe...establishing that it was in fact a sewing machine it went back into closet sans boxes. Fast forward to the present day and time...I have an obsession...I adore quilts... I now wish to make a quilt or ten. The fabric is purchased, the sewing machine is "set up" and I must learn how to operate the computerized version! We won't discuss how much time was spent ogling and touching fabric or thinking about quilt patterns. I plan things very well...it is the starting and finishing that is problematic for this lifelong procrastinator. I am pretty sure I suffer from an adult attention deficit disorder or a scattered memory disorder. I may start something in one room and go to another room for an item and get started on something else and remember there is a project going on in the other room...you see it is Monday already.
Wish me lots o luck. I will be under or around a pile of fabrics and lots of delicious sewing implements!
