Obsessions, Anyone?

I've been rather preoccupied lately with something other than quilting and piecing.
It's driven me crazy, so I just gave in and worked the daggone thing until I finished it. Took me about 2 weeks, I'm guessing. I was even having dreams of this thing!

Here's a real problem. . .


The pen is pointing to a missing piece. I don't remember leaving a piece on the floor - I tried to be really careful! But if one got away from me, then I'm blaming Gracie, our cat, with pouncing on it - if that's the case, then I will need to start pulling furniture out because she could have batted it into countless places. Maybe it wasn't in the package, but I really think it's in this house somewhere.

DD Erin gave me this puzzle as a Christmas gift. I nearly didn't open it; the very thought of tackling it was daunting. But, it was a gift from my little girl! (in her 20s, but still...) So I did it, not knowing how obsessed it would make me!



Do a little research on Jackson Pollock. I'm no art critic, but I think we have drop cloths in the garage that look just as artistic as this.

So, now it's done, and I can get back to what will result in something a bit more substantial - quilts!! Here is my step 3 for Lori's/Humble Quilts doll quilt-along called Midnight Stars. I am prepared to do step 4 tonight or tomorrow.


My entire efforts on this doll quilt, steps 1, 2, and 3. I cannot believe I am working with such tiny pieces. Thankfully, it's a doll quilt; I'd be just as obsessed as that puzzle made me if it were any bigger!



Have a great Monday, quilters!!

Puzzles are so much fun, how frustrating to be missing ONE piece.
