Quilter's Cramp............

Quilters cramp

Okay - where do I start. I have had this quilt on the racks for a while now - I have worked a ton of hours on it, but I still have three rows to go. It is taking all that is in me to finish this thing. It's going to be gorgeous and I know that I will be proud of it, but I am having a hard time finishing.

I am so disorganized that I get so distracted. I should say my brain is so disorganized that I can't face what I need to get done when I need to get it done. Please tell me I am not alone in this........

Every day I wake up thinking I am going to conquer the world by getting everything I need to get done that day. When it all comes down to it - I don't get everything done and I feel so far behind.

I am the kind of person that allows myself to get distracted when it comes to quilting because I feel so far behind. What I need to learn to do is to stick to a task until it is finished and not allow myself to get distracted. I have realized something about myself though - I have to make each quilt a masterpiece. I can not just skip the stitch in the ditch - I can't leave out the fillers, I want every quilt to be amazing! So, I end up taking so much time to finish one quilt that during the middle of it I get -- Quilter's Cramp!

Truth is - sometimes I just want to crawl up next to Clint on the couch and watch TV with him - even if it's football.

PS -- Please, please don't think I am complaining! I love to work on these quilts - I just need to find a better way to get them done faster!!!
