Years ago when I lived south of Oregon there was a house in San Jose, California called the Winchester House. It was a bizarre house built by one of the heirs of the Winchester rifle family. She believed, if she stopped adding on to the house all the victims of the Winchester rifles would come to haunt her. Thus, the house had stairways to no where, doors that opened to solid walls and oddly added rooms. I totally get her! If I stop purchasing fabric or creating UFO's all the quilters who have passed before me will come to my sewing room to torment me! I swear it is true!
Also, I need to stop worrying! So what if I don't get it all done in my life time! One of my recent favorite projects was a UFO of a wonderful departed quilter friend and I know she loved iit and therefore I love it! But, I do need to be more decisive. So instead of visiting 3 quilt stores on my way to Portland I only stopped at one...the Disneyland for Quilters and specifically Woolies! Although the shop has all kinds of wonderful fabric, the slide show mostly is about Wool. Pioneer Quilts http://www.pioneerquiltshop.com/ will soon have a web store but in the mean time if you see something on this blog you are interested in, they do take phone orders!
Enjoy the slides and join me in adding more to your list...I am sure it is way to short!
