She says she read a post from a blog she follows about this lady who was so bogged down the the thought of her 26+ UFOs sitting there, that she did not feel she could begin something new. So she became stifled in her creative process.

So landscapelady jumped out of her current project that was bogging her down and created a new piece with sun prints and seta colors! She instantly felt rejuvenated! Yes.
I have been long wanting to make a quilt of words. By that I mean a quilt with words on it much like Tonya Riccuci's fabulous word quilts. So I think I will do that. I do need to complete the quilting on Dan's quilt currently sitting on my long arm, but that will need some ripping out of the last three rows since the tension really @#$%*! ........you don't want to hear that word I used there.
So when I get back from the retreat, I will finish that up. And I can move some more quilts out of my UFO pile and begin to create some to replace it. I have a week of opportunity to finish up some things I have started, like Bonnie Hunter's Plaid Bargello from my shirt stash and her Playing With Jacks from the time she was here what, two years ago? I love that one and do want to finish it soon.
But when I do finish it, I am sure I won't want to give it away (did you think otherwise?!) So if you are in line for a quilt gift from me, you may want to start lobbying for it NOW! By Christmas I may just give in and send it to you!
