I suffer from sewing ADD

Anyone else out there afflicted? I have so many ideas swirling around in my head it's insane! On top of baby sewing/embroidery, maternity clothes, top-a-palooza, to name a few of my schemes, my friend Annie showed me fabric she bought at Fabric Depot this weekend to make duvets. I took a jaundiced eye to the duvet cover on my bed and thought, "Hey, that looks pretty shabby, I need to make a new duvet!" Yikes!!! Luckily I found a brand new King size flat sheet at the thrift store in the most delicious color of chocolate brown to star as the bottom of my duvet. I have this diabolical plan for a wraparound so that the bottom layer becomes the edging as well around the center, which will be a quilting masterpiece. Well, maybe not a masterpiece because I would like to whip this out before Tom returns from Fire Academy, but it will be nice. The quilted piece will be done in strip fashion for speed and then the trusty EMP6 will do the quilting while I work on something else! I am leaving the top hem of the sheet intact and it will fold up and button envelope style to encase the down comforter.  Now I'm off to dig through the quilt fabric tote for the perfect fabrics. Hope I don't get distracted with another project!!!

I have it, too. I have so many ideas and get new ones it seems like everyday. There is just so little time to make them all. On top of that, I have been knitting for a year so I have all kinds of projects there I want to do.

OMG! I know just what you mean! I order patterns (that I JUST HAVE TO HAVE!) and when they arrive...but wait, this looks more interesting...but gee, shouldn't I be working on this... Wow, this looks like fun... and then I have stuff lying all over the place in various stages of completion and wonder why the apartment is such a wreck!
