Does This Happen To You?

I spent time yesterday doing some reorganizing in my sewing room.  OK, sidebar here: when does a sewing room become a quilt studio?  I want to have one some day.  Any way, that's what I did for my 15 minutes.  (I really spent more time than that, but for the record, 15 minutes was used.)

So in the middle of the night, about 2:00 A.M. , I wake up and start thinking about the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt and how I really should be further along than I am.  I'm not staying focused.  I really need to just get the Ohio Star blocks done and get on with it.  You may know the drill.  So - I got up and I cut out 100 half square triangles.  I didn't even work on the Ohio Star blocks.  Does this happen to you? Wondering if it's just me or what?

But, while cutting, I did decide for the Twister quilt to leave 2 of the white squares and add 4 yellow ones and to make the border that I need for the Twister yellow also.  So maybe that was it, I just had that hanging over my head and needed to make a decision.

Declutter item -  Yesterday -more bookmarks off the computer.
Today's item was a tote being donated.

Karen, let me talk about a quilt studio and a sewing room..I've been told that before that a sewing room should be neat and tidy but if you call it a quilt studio, it can be a mess as you are an artist at work and you can't worry about neatness...it works for me!!!

I don't know what a sewing room is. All I do or want to do is quilt. I think sewing rooms are for those with a broader agenda.

Sounds like you have the ADHD bug...yep, I know what that's like.

I don't usually wake up like that, I just stay up to late..That's when mistakes are made, so I can't craft after 9pm. It's like my brain shuts off at 9 sharp..

I think I like Stitches suggestion! Be "le artiste!" Okay, I just made up that word, but it sounds French, eh?
