Monday...gotta do

Spent the weekend pretty much lazing around. Too many hours spent in the studio simply staring at the design wall. Ever have one of those weekends? So now, it's gotta do Monday.
This quilt has to be bound and ready to hop on the plane with my hubby in the a.m. The baby is late and so am I.
This is a design I'm playing with inspired by some leftovers and a song. It's not a gotta do...it's one of the things that distracted me from my to do list.
This just needs to be quilted so I can share the tutorial for it this week. Should've had this done by now.
I really didn't get a thing done this weekend except make more messes. I've gotta get this cleaned up...I'm having company tonight. Do you think they'll notice?

If you ask me, a creative studio that doesn't show signs of use, be it a project in the works or a full-blown disaster area, just isn't right. On principle, I never cleaning my work room for company's sake. Unless they're going to be sleeping in there, in which case it gets REALLY clean. ; )

Yes, they'll probably notice, beauty is noticable and they'll love the beautiful mess.

I hope your gotta do's are getting done Jacquie! And as far as the pile on your couch, if your company is like me, I'm just enamored by pretty colors and don't see anything else! LOL!

Andi said...

The only thing they'll notice is all the fabulous creativity going on at your place.
Such lovely projects!!

Beth said...

It's OK, your WIPs are beautiful! You'll get there!

Cheryl Arkison said...

They might notice, but I don't think they'll complain.

beth said...

i'm really good at making messes too....wish my messes were as beautiful as yours. :)

I like everything you are working on. I really like the orange baby quilt. Have you shown that before? I would like to see more. The next one looks like the pattern I saw called Chinese Coins. I really want to try something like that. I love the interaction of color.

I too have days where I need to work on my “to do list” but just lay around accomplishing nothing! However, my lazy days help me feel more energetic so I can get back to work.

Your body must have needed a rest! Love the coin quilt!

Adrienne said...

Love them! I am doing the coin quilt as my 2nd quilt!

Exuberant Color said...

I think it must have been the weather. We had your weekend weather here today and all I did was wander from place to place and straighten up a little and go nothing done in the studio.

Rose said...

If they complain kick them out and invite one of us!! hahaha. I have those days...every day lol

Jackie said...

I just love your messes! They are all just beautiful!

Sew It Up! said...

If you ask me, a messy room is a sign of creativity...
Love all those projects.

henny said...

Hi Jacquie,it's ok to have a messy studio or home apparently. It means you're live normally, still work and creative :) Just enjoy ..
Love the coin quilt and zigzag, lovely!

Lisa A said...

I've found so many distractions standing in the way of my gotta do's lately. Love the leftover quilt.

Contented Caroline said...

I think that if you left them out your guests would not only notice, but be exceedingly jealous of your talent and motivation. They look lovely - and not at all a mess.

Victoria said...

That's the kind of mess that makes my heart sing... no need to clean up, it all looks just wonderful :0)

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

If you have company coming and they do not notice all that beauty, they are NUTS!!!

amandajean said...

i have the same type of situation going no over here...without the company, though. :) did you get your binding done?

audreypawdrey said...

You do create beautiful "messes"! I can't wait to see the tutorial and that finished quilt. They are all beautiful. Did you manage to finish up in time?

Lynn said...

Distractions from my to-do list turn into more ufo's - a vicious cycle

MightyMom said...

nah, they'll just think you were worried they'd get cold.

Sometimes I have to just sit and look at a project. It's like the brain is figuring it out without my knowledge...I just sit and look. Then, all of a sudden, an idea will spark from all that looking and away I'll go....

I gotta get sister's quilt done THIS WEEK!!! yikes...I've spent too many nights asleep under it instead of quilting on it!! sigh.

Sophia said...

How do you manage to put the most beautiful fabrics together for each quilt? I love them all Jacquie!!! Fabulous! :-)

burrito said...

How crow that last quilt is fabulous... that's the kind of quilt that makes me want to learn how to quilt !(do.not.need.another.hobby!)

All of your work is so inspiring and delightful.

Marit said...

So much eyecandy! Love the zig zag on top, the colors and quilting is so fresh! We all need a little break, now and then. Be good to yourself!

Rebekah said...

I love that first zig zag quilt on the top...that is one of my favorite fabric lines of all times
