Alright, I've just got to admit it. I got a little out of control this summer. I'm involved in three exchanges/challenges. And while that number isn't really very high, I think that might be one too many.
I blame it on the blog. I was so excited to see what others were doing out in blogworld, and was so inspired by other's greatness that I kept starting new projects. That in itself isn't so bad. I've made my peace with my tendancy to juggle a gazillion projects at once. I like it that way. It makines life interesting . But then every other blog I visited was hosting some kind of fun challenge and I got caught up in all the blog hype. I wanted to join all the other "cool" quilters out there and try to be like them in some small way by joining in on their fun challenges. The only problem is, I'm not good with multiple deadlines.
I could get them done but then my children, my husband, the housekeeping and worst of all, my sanity might suffer. I pulled all nighters in college to finish papers. I pulled almost all nighters when my babies were brand new or when they are sick. But all nighters for a quilt blog challenge? Sorry, folks, ain't gonna happen.
The deadline for the two color challenge is coming up in about two and a half weeks. And I'm so sorry, but that one isn't going to be done.
And then the Scrappy Mosaic Quilt is supposed to be done sometime in August. And uh, that one probably won't be complete either.
I've got a block exchange with my old girl friends from Utah at the beginning of September and that one absolutely has to be done. It will.
Anyway, I really don't think you bloggers will care if I get my quilts completed or not. Do you? I mean, I'm gonna get them done, just probably not in the next month.
