Confessions of a Quilt-aholic: Sewing in Moderation?

Can one sew in moderation?

I don’t know about most people, but when I try something new, I give it 100%! When I started quilting, I made a king size quilt top in less than a week, and I’ve been working hard on sewing and quilting ever since. I’ve been trying to work on finding a balance of sewing and normal life, but I always end up in my new sewing room, pumping out one project or another. Recently I took some time off for my depression, but now I am back and have been hard at work on Christmas themed shenanigans, and then a very lovely lady bought a quilt fro me, so I have been working on that.

Recently, I started looking for a job to help me get out of the house, and I’ve come across a few that seemed interesting, but most of them make me want to quilt instead. Haha. I’ve just been looking for some moderation to keep me more balanced. Does anyone have any advice?

I’m kind of looking for a full time job, but I also want to make sewing, quilting, and crafting my full time job, so id=s there an answer for this age old quandary? I’m not sure.

Finished The Top… Now To Quilt It!

I finished the top late last night. Boy, this one was quite a bit of work, but I think that was mostly due to its size. The woman I am making it for said she loved it so far, so that made me quite happy! I cannot wait to quilt it and get it in the mail to her so she can see it and touch it!

I decided to go with a dark burgundy back, because… well, I thought it looked hot in comparison to the front. I think it really sets it off, and for the binding, I am doing a solid black… but that may change, because I already have a new idea for it looming in the background of my mind, so we’ll see!
