You Might be a Masochist if...............

Even though you know it will take 4,000 itty bitty pieces, you decide to make 100 rose blocks anyway. The 4,000 pieces will be enough for just the border...the 8 inches that will hang down over the mattress on all sides. I have no idea what the main quilt pattern will be, but I am sure something will come to me as I piece along block after block after block after block...........

I must be either a masochist or an escapee from the local psychiatric ward.

Either way, I've completed 16 blocks so far.........only 84 to go!

My sister is nurse Ratched in the local psyc ward, so if I get admitted, I will at least be among family.

Do you all know who nurse Ratched was? Remember 'One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" with Jack Nicholson? She was his caring nurse. LOL. From some of the stories my sister tells it's not a fun place to be a nurse. She gets spit on, punched at, and worse. She doesn't take any cr*p, though. She may be the baby of the family, but she's a tough cookie!


  1. WOW 4000 pieces, you are nuts. Anyways you are doing a great job. What hospital are you going to be in? Save a bed for me.

  2. I've decided you just have "busy fingers", Zoey, and must be doing something all the time. And you always end up with something beautiful for your efforts. You've done 16 of them already? Heck, you'll be done next week.

  3. Lostroses hit the nail on the head! Sounds like you are really into your hobby and more power to you.
    How about your feisty little sister! Yes, being a nurse at one of those faculties requires likes of....everything!!!!

  4. You are so type-A! I'm a lazy B. :P

    Those roses are gorgeous. I would have made bigger squares though. But if someone can make 4,000 of them, it'd be you. I admire that.

  5. Debbi, It would be great if you were up there with me. You get to do crafts on certain days, so we could quilt together!

    lostroses, Busy fingers. I think you are right. I can never sit and do nothing. Even if I watch TV, I have to do something else at the same time.

    Dianne, yes, I have times when I am really into it and this is one of them. I like it when I am always eager to get back to the project. I bet you get the same way with your stitching.

    Hi Chopsticks, I don't have to make 4,000 of the blocks! Only 100 of them, but it's a total of 4,000 pieces of fabric. See it's not nearly as bad as you thought!

  6. Zoey,
    Haha! I'm so scatterbrained sometimes. All I remembered was the number 4,000. But I'm sure if you needed to make 4,000 of them, you'd do it!

  7. I really like the rose flower blocks - bet it's going to be very cool when done.
