Now finish your quilt--don't let it become a WIP for 2011!!!

Aye aye Cap'n!!   Grin  I am off and running now that I have that other tut to help out, yay!

Also, that hat is very adorable, I will have to experiment with some different styles next time.

waggonswest  - trivia night, huh?  Sounds fun!  And I am so onboard with your #43, I have been googling and researching and keeping track of all the tips and ideas I can find on the 'paper' towels.  There are some adorable ones here on Craftster, I even saw some that snap together so you can keep them on the roll like regular paper towels.  If I find any incredible links I will post here!  Welcome to the board!

that quilt is gorgeous, bethieb!  and the rest of stuff I'm seeing too!  Girls, your works are seriously inspiring.
I am not at my brightest these days, so I don't know if I'll do anything this weekend.  I'll have another look at my list, might choose something easy.

The crafting gods have absolutely gone crazy.I signed up for a swap & what happens my life went crazy.I've beensick 2 weeks,then injured my back while cleaning off the snow from the car for my dh.So I was laid up for 4 days.Then my mom had dr. appointments out the gazoo ( which she almost waited til the last min. to tell me).Then she's  finished chemo but she's losing some of her hair ( very emotional time right now for both of us).And she's having some health issues due to the chemo.So I'm really having a bad time right now.I'm stressed about the swap because I don't know when I'll be able to catch up on the list I made to make for my partner  Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry.And some of the things are very time consuming. I had about 6-10 things listed.Can I just go somewhere and get some Jack Daniel's and valium???Or go and hide?I just give up. Cry.I have a huge list of things for this craftalong but I don't feel like doing anything. Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

Hey, don't worry about the crafts.  They have to help you relax and feel happier.  If time is pressing for that swap, speak to the person in charge of it, she may find an easy solution.  There is a lot in your plate already right now and you don't need unnecessary extra worries.  And crafty time is sometimes a wave that comes and goes, so just take it easy!  First things first and bum the rest for a while.

Thank you.I took your advice and e-mailed the coordinator of the swap.Hopefully I can get a extension.I just hope everything will settle down for awhile.Then maybe I can concentrate on things.I've been so scatter-brained lately,i just can't concentrate on anything.Hopefully I start feeling like crafting again.
