I feel like Tigger....

.... because bouncing is what Tiggers do best!

I have been bouncing....from one project to another.  Starting with these beauties -- from fabric we bought in Houston.....
 ....to playing with some of my 1.5" squares.....
 ....to making a charity baby quilt from donated flannel strips.....
 ....to another charity baby quilt....
 ...to playing with my yummy pink fat quarters that range from the palest of pink to an orange sherbert to a deep deep pink.
So, I haven't finished anything (yet) in the last two weeks -- but I've played with lots of fabrics, patterns, and used up some scraps as well as finally cutting some fabrics I've loved.  Who knows what this week will bring.

I hope you are finding time to play with fabric -- whether it's bouncing like Tigger or devoting yourself to a single project until it's done.  It's all good!

Keep piecing, Jan

Wow - you may not have finished anything but it looks like you have had a lot of fun!

Bouncing is good therapy - when my youngest son was little whenever he got really angry I would make him bounce on the mini-trampoline. How in the world can you not be happy when you are bouncing - go Tigger!

Absolutely nothing wrong with bouncing like a Tigger. Especially, when you are working on so many wonderful projects.

Renee said...

I'm the type to only have a couple of large projects going. It helps keep my mental (and quilting!) space from getting too cluttered, and there is less to worry about my small kids getting into! I love the first quilt, the colors are so vibrant!

Cayte Pisky Cove said...

As long as you bounce equally and enjoy yourself nothing wrong with more than one project!!!!! Gorgeous quilts - so clever.

Wow, you've got a lot going on! I'm normally project monogamous, so I think my head would be spinning if I had that much going on! All of your stuff looks great.
