More Music and why my Dad's quilt top isn't finished...

So why is the quilt top not finished, why isn't the whole damn quilt finished? Three words

Lack of Focus :/

I get really excited about projects get about 1/4 of the way and start a new project, I have three laundry baskets full of half finished projects. I had a lot of momentum in January and it has faded a bit. This coming week I'm going to try really hard to finish my prairie point pillow I have 3 rows done out of 16 . EEK!!!

I also really need to get my scarf done and my February bag as it will soon be march, but because of my love for pink, candy, and hearts I will probably rock it for the rest of winter, and part of spring.

More music to craft to:

Rage against the Machine- YES I was very productive, however I don't know how I feel about sewing and cutting while simultaneously singing out loud " You got bullet in your fucking head"

Brandi Carlile- YES excellent for ironing small pieces of fabric, and great for early morning getting started to work music

The Decemberists- YES fun and very productive I love to sing out loud along with them

Tomorrow my goal is to take pictures of the finished projects and the semi-finished projects and actually post them. And to at least finish another block of my dad's quilt, good thing there's not a time that it "has" to be finished.

I think I'll have some tea in the morning with Brandi Carlile and then get moving with some Rage...Know your Enemy...mine is procrastination.

ooh fun!

So the quilt top is not quite finished, but I'm coming along really good on it. It should be done tonight.

In the meantime I put down the rotary cutter for a few minutes to find out which tarot card I am. I'm quite pleased with the results

You are The Star

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised

The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.

What Tarot Card are You?

Uh...long time no blog :/

Well it's been awhile, opps. The end of last year is all kind-of a blur. I have been sewing quite a bit though. Pictures to come soon, by soon I mean by the end of the day ;) . Today I'm working on a quilt for my Dad I'm piecing the quilt top and also doing some embroidery on it as well. I'm hoping, no I will be done with the quilt top today!

I've been experimenting what I listen to while I'm sewing. Here are the results so far:

Tegan and Sara= YES

Motion City Soundtrack = Yes

Al Green = No I love that man but I was about to fall asleep at the cutting table

Otis Redding = YES

Sufjan Stevens = No again sleepy, but may be a good choice for when I'm painting fabric

SO far this year I've made: 3 Stockings, a purse, a table runner, a crayon bag ( a pattern I made myself), a duck, and I think that's is so far. All of this done in January 2008 I think that's pretty darn good.

OK no back to lunch, and then back to the cutting table
