Hey look, it's a quilt

Well, look here, it's an actual quilt picture on a quilt blog.  Stranger things have happened!  This was quilted before I left for my week's vacation in Colorado and I took it off the frame today to add another quilt.  That one is almost finished and ready to photograph, but I think I have room on the backing fabric for one more quilt top.  not sure I will get it finished tonight.  I just can't seem to get back into the swing of things.  Being at my parent's house inspired me to clean my house.  There is a long way to go to get it close to presentable.  I just don't have the room for all the stuff I have accumulated and I have a couple of options.  One: get rid of stuff (which is the most logical, but least appealing).  Two: use up all the stuff I have here, which will take the most time, but is the path of least resistance because it will require the least amount of effort right now.  Every day, I will have to eat the food in the kitchen, sew with the fabric that is right in front of me and wear the clothes that are unfolded on the couch.  Three: put everything in the backyard and start a bonfire.  At the moment, that option is most appealing.  Of course, it would attract the most attention from local authorities and neighbors and would probably land me in jail.  But in jail they do provide three square meals a day and you don't have to do your own laundry and I hear you get free cable.  Hmmm.  Tempting.  I guess I had better get back to cleaning the kitchen and quilting.  I've proven the law of entropy enough around here.

It takes me awhile to generate some creative energies when I've been away, too. I start small and work my way up. Funny how 'tidying up' seems to always come first, esp. when you've been visiting others and are 'inspired' by their housekeeping. Doesn't last long, though, if you're a quilter, does it?
