Time to Ride Again!

Actually, it's Time to Sew Again!!!
I'm ready...
1.  new blade in my Olfa cutter (Splash is hiding - grrr) - check
 I have one blade holder marked "used" and one marked "new".
This way I dispose of the old blade in a safe manner and don't confuse myself at the same time.
2.  new needle in my machine - check
3.  10 bobbins wound - check
After I've used all ten bobbins I know it's time to do some dusting & cleaning
4.  chase the dust bunnies out of my machine - check

Now it's time to find a project.  I find myself getting distracted by the 'shiny things' (new fabric/new patterns). 
I completely dismiss the 'slightly tarnished things' hidden in my stash closet.  Sigh!! 
They once were shiny things I had to have ... why did they lose their appeal? 
 I've decided I need to right that wrong. 
I'm going to dig for a slightly tarnished shiny thing to start working on. 
Hopefully I won't have to dig too deep.
Wish me luck and stay tuned. 
Have your days been pieceful?
In Friendship!

Now .... just what are you up to????

Shiny Things! Oh, how I know what you mean. I have 3 UFO's which are soo close to completion, but what do I do? I find 2 QAL patterns that are so tempting! I could cut out a few pieces, and use them as my leaders-enders, right? Never mind that I already have a leader-ender project that has been ongoing for umm, 3-4 years. Oh, the devil siren of new projects!!

KaHolly said...

I need to do all those things, too!! I'll bet your can come up with something that will make your heart by finishing it up!!

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

Shiny new things are always tempting... it's funny but many of my UFOs seem sort of shiny after aging for several years!

Have fun!

Debra @ Life is a Stitch said...

GREAT idea!! I need to do the same.

I can't wait to see what you find! You go girl!

Carol said...

I'll be on the edge of my seat until I find out what you're up to!

Wendy said...

Somethings brewing in the pot, can't wait to see what you pull out of the pile.

Jocelyn said...

I tend to do the very same thing. Pretty much end up in a stalemate. I'm hoping to get quilting again soon. The knitting has been very relaxing and less of a brain activity :-)

I hope you found Splash! Not much piecing going on here today. Just fabric purchasing LOL! Hopefully tomorrow some piecing will happen. The fabric I was purchasing is going with some that had gotten pushed to the back of the closet. Does that count? Mixing old with new? I hope so. I know exactly what you mean and I'm trying to do the same thing. Wow, this comment got long LOL!

I know just what you mean. I went through my things and decided I need to use up the old first from here on out. The old just doesn't seem as wonderful as it was when I bought it :)

I do the same with my blades. I have been doing a little sewing. Need to blog about it.
