Some of this - some of that...

I was sitting at my sewing machine stitching some triangular blocks together, and just realized that the things right next to it really mirrored my scatter-brained approach to quilting lately. Some stitchery-blocks, a piece of denim and the pattern for my haunted house quilt, and just out of sight to the left, my little blue bucket filled with colouring pencils, gel pens and paintsticks. I haven't been able to settle down to any one thing lately and seem to be flitting from one project to another, adding a few stitches here, a few stitches there. Well at least I'm doing something. And those stitches will add up and I will finish something one of these days... I had better concentrate on the Haunted House quilt, actually - it's that time of year. In spite of not really celebrating Halloween, I have one Halloween quilt already, and this will be my second one. I've been telling myself that it will be the perfect quilt for my cousins daughter, but it might just stay put here... There's more Halloween inspiration over at Dover - subscribe to their emails, and you get to download free samples from their books every week. This friendly witch is from a whole page full of Halloween images added this week.

Stitches do add up, and yes eventually you will finish something! Atleast that what I tell myself too!!
Thanks for the link to Dover, I'm off to look at their site :-)
