DREAMi! #12 and 2018 Schedule

Welcome to the first DREAMi! link up for 2018! If you're new to my blog and have no clue what a DREAMi! is, it's short for DRop Everything And Make it!

I'm sure you've have moments like those where something catches your eye, be it off someone else's blog, in a store, off Pinterest, at a guild meeting, in a magazine, in your email, on YouTube, in short any source, and you feel totally so consumed by that fabulous project that you have to push your current project, heck forget meals and housework, and make that sucker, and make it now, not stopping until it is done and out of your head!

It happens to me a lot. But this month it didn't, although there are a certain two projects, one on the desktop of my laptop that stares at me each time I open the computer, the other in my graph paper design notebook, both enticing me to throw caution to the wind and make them. I know I am going to succumb about mid-week when this current deadline happens, which is the reason I'm being rather focused, and the current project will be done and blogged about for Thursday (hint!).

For now, I got nuttin'...

If you post on Instagram, use the hashtag #dreamimoment and tag me, @mmmquilts so I'll be sure to see it!

If you have a finish, I hosted TGIFF yesterday, and the link remains open until midnight tonight, so be sure to link that up. You can also see one of the two latest quilts I finished (the other that had to get done before we left for Florida is here) that made me put my quilty blinders on this past month.

Here is the 2018 schedule! (updated with links as the year progresses)

  1. I love your title--it usually applies to me, but i am just coming off a l o n g dry spell (and the flu can also be blamed here, just sayin' ) and am slowly coming back to sewing. I am making a surprise quilt for my son and am just hoping that it isn't too bright. The males in our family only wear DARK and MUTED colors--ever!! (My hubster to me when my daughter asks what to get him for his b-day: "A shirt--but no bright colors!!") And so it goes. Well, maybe my son needs a little pop of color in his life...I can only hope hugs, Julierose (P.S> Now, how did i digress down that path??)

  2. I was going to say no new projects for me either, but I did start a new Rainbow Scrap Project, but that was planned, so it's not really a Dreami project.

  3. In a holding pattern here, too. One to finish up and one to keep working on! Maybe spring or summer will bring one to me...finish won’t be until tomorrow or Monday but definitely before the 31st!

  4. I have one that's somewhat on paper, but mostly banging around in my head. It needs attention, but I have all these QALs . . . :-)

  5. Nuttin seems to be the norm, count me among the. Working on something but it's still in infancy stage.

  6. The squirrels got me good. How does one end up with a quilt top when the plan was to cut some fabric?? LOL

  7. Nice quilt category. I've had a few quilts that come out of the blue and grab me till they're done. I love them - they're usually the most creative.

  8. Yes, they will certainly multiply. I can't tell you how often I fall in love with one quilt design or another on line and insist on making it.

    Thanks for the linky!

  9. No DREAMI moment this month, but definitely next month. I've been "cleaning" in my Studio...


I wholeheartedly appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment, as they make my day! I answer every one by personal email. :-) Unless... you are a "no-reply" blogger, which can occur for a few reasons. You can get around that by writing out your email within your comment so that I can answer you.
