Blog Monster

So my friend says to me, “Susan, you don’t seem to be sewing much these days. What’s up? You haven’t brought in any new show and tell items?” I felt like I had been caught with my hand in the cookie jar. See, I started writing this blog exactly one month ago today, and I can not believe how it has grabbed a hold of me! In the incredibly intelligent words of my newly met blog sister from Wisconsin, “ …but the Blog Monster sucked me in….” I have become a blog stalker, constantly looking to see what everyone else is sewing, instead of actually sewing myself! Is this something that will pass, or am I doomed? Is my granddaughter destined to cover at night with store bought blankets? Oh, my gosh, how do I get this monkey off my back? Is there a 12 Stitch program I can enroll in? What’s to become of my beloved Janome if left unused for more than 24 hours? Will she seize up like an old, oil-less engine? Oh, the dreadfulness of it all. Oh, the shame. Today, I am going to get this under control. I am going to reclaim my sewing time and start producing again. I am just going to post this one post, and then I am definitely, definitely, going to sew the backing for my Scrappy Christmas HoHoHo quilt. Today I WILL do that backing, right after I wander over to see if Bonnie is back from vacation.....

I know what you mean! Luckily I can read at work and cannot sew. So I sew when I am at home. Try setting goals with a deadline and see if that helps!

Meeting so many new friends is a lot of fun! However, I'm finding that the blogging has encouraged me to finish more projects because it seems as if everyone else is doing more than I am!

I think it does get better after a while, but it's definately another hobby...I call it "running around the ring" and it is lots of fun.
I limit my time for that in the evenings when I'm too tired to sew.

Like Swooze, I usually do my stalking at work. Then I either quilt or knit in the evenings. It does get better.
