When I was doing another monthly challenge many years ago, right after I discovered TAST, I used all of the stitches she had for the month on that month's piece.. it turned out very colorful.. Sharon is a treasure!

Gives me the shivers!  (In a good way, that is.)

I can see how a person could get addicted to crazy quilting and the stitching mania involved.

Oh, that is so beautiful! 

Sharon generously shares what she knows.  I can usually get myself out of a creativity slump by going to her blog or her books.

LOVE what you did to your block!

Dear Mishii, do not rearrange. Purge.

I so rarely need to purge. I’m not one to keep things “just in case”.  Clutter makes me anxious so I don’t have it. I rearranged and will see if I like the new view. 
 

Having Pita work in my space makes me jittery. He has no issues with clutter. I spend the first 10 minutes after getting home picking up scissors, seam rippers, markers, chalk, and other sundry items and putting them away. He leaves a trail of stuff wherever he goes. Why fold the leftover batting and put it in the leftover batting bin when you can just leave it where it drops?  Argh

Can't help you there.

I don’t really understand it at all. He says after 30 years I should be used to it. I’ve tried explaining that expecting and accepting are not the same thing. I have a hard time working amidst chaos. Digging through piles of fabric, looking hither and yon for my scissors, etc. He has no issues at all stepping over or around things or spending an inordinate amount of time searching for tools. 
 

We have done a significant amount of home improvement projects over the years so you would think we would have figured out how to blend our styles. You would be wrong. It seems quilting is no different than laying tile.  At least I have learned to just clean up and put things where they belong as soon as I enter a room/garage. It does cut down on the yelling a bit. And if whatever tool isn’t in the tool chest where it belongs, I just ask him to get it for me while I go do something else. I manage to usually not start yelling until the third time now. Progress!

Would he have an aversion to pink scissors?

If you bought yourself pink scissors would he avoid them like the plague?

Just an idea .... smiling_imp

Your tools, my tools kind of scenario might work or then again it might not ...

September 1st, so I decided I should probably get started on DD's llama quilt rather than sewing scraps.  So I headed over to Gibbson's because I'm going to need 5 yds of background and 8 FQ worth of browns and grays for the bodies.   I have nothing like that in my stash, though plenty for the bright blankets.  I found $8 & $9 yd for Moda.  Not too bad. I still have embellishment to do on 2 blocks plus applique the garland on my Christmas quilt.  But lately I've been missing my sewing machine, so the llamas might as well get going.  I want to make it full size for her new full size bed.  So that's a fair number of llamas and looking at the pattern it's going to take a while.
