So I've become a bit obsessed with those little card holders and now I've made four of them, with a few more ready to cut and sew. I just can't seem to stop. I haven't decided yet if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
It's keeping me somewhat busy - though not too much, since they are SO quick to make - but I really only had use for three - one for me and one each for friends having birthdays soon. I suppose I can save them for other gifts or something... but really, how many do I REALLY need to make???
I suppose I could find something else to do - like layer and start quilting on a couple of raw edge applique quilts that I have backs all ready for, but that sounds like too much work - having to cut the batting! Woe is me. Actually, I'm just being overdramatic - it's not that big a deal to cut the batting for them, I'm being lazy though.
I have lots of quilts that need backs made too, but that DOES sound like a lot of work to me. I simply detest making backs... I usually piece them out of scraps, so my backs are as pieced as my fronts sometimes. But I also have large pieces for making single-fabric backs, so the piecing is not an excuse... I just really hate working with that much fabric at once. I guess that's one of the reasons I love making blocks, but hate putting them together. Also one of the reasons I've stopped making huge (like King and Queen sized) quilts.
I notice a definite trend on my part lately to make wall-hangings or lap quilts. I think I'm just 'over' bed quilts. I hate wrestling with that much fabric - and I don't mean just for the quilting process, I mean for piecing too. I like little quilts. They are fun. They are fast.
Hope you are having a quilty day.
