Somewhere…. deep in the recesses of my office/fabric storage room, is the PERFECT multi-colored stripe fabric for binding THIS quilt!! Yesterday I trimmed the edges, then went to get the fabric. I was going to get this project OFF my to-do list. HAHA!
I know the fabric is there…. I purchased it over a year ago. I have drooled over it on regular occasions, tempted to use it for something else. But no, I was strong. It was purchased to bind my Kaffe Fassett quilt, and that is exactly what it will do!
Evidently on one of those drooling fests, I did NOT put it back in the storage tub with the rest of the Kaffee fabric. Now I need it. Now I can’t find it! UGGHH!
I WISH I WERE BETTER ORGANIZED!! Flylady says that my problem is, I am a perfectionist, and since I don’t have time to organize everything “perfectly” I procrastinate until I do (have the time to clean/organize everything perfectly) and it seems that time never comes. I am not convinced. I am a perfectionist when it comes to quilting and piecing. The rest of life, well, everything can’t be perfect!
So, today after I get a few small areas of a quilt ripped ( a few “less than perfect” areas where IQ bumped into the belly bar and flattened the bottom of some rows… a rookie mistake that I KNOW better than doing!) and put back in the machine, I will commence the great SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT FABRIC THAT I HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED THAT NOW RESIDES SOMEWERE IN THIS TOTALLY DISORGANIZED ROOM!
I think my only hope is to empty the room out and start fresh…. and I’ll do that as soon as I have time to do it perfectly! (Seriously, I’ve been planning on doing that for over 2 years now!) Oh Flylady, what else have you figured out about me, that I have not discovered myself??
