Too many BOM's

Help, I think I need an intervention! One of my goals for this year was to finish some of the projects that I had started, without starting new ones and use up some of my stash. Somehow I was delusional and thought that signing up for the Star Crazy BOM would help me decrease my stash. That was my first BOM for the year. Then I found the civil war block from Homestead Hearth and just had to sign up for that. This is in addition to the two other BOM's that I started last year from Homestead Hearth: Starscape and Sylvia's Bridal Quilt. Then I read about the Moose on the Porch Block of the Month on my friend Karin's blog and just had to start it. I finished blocks three and four over the weekend. So far all of the blocks have been really easy to make. As you can see the BOM's are starting to take over my life and my sewing room.
Not only do I have BOM's at home but at school, Book of the Month. Each month we feature a special book that the entire school reads. The book for this month is Chicken Sunday by Patricia Polacco, one of my favorite authors. This month I read the book to one of our fourth grade classes and encouraged them to write their response to the book. I was then responsible for putting up a bulletin board and displays for the book. I have also been busy working with one of our AP's to determine the books that will be used each month for the 2010-11 school year.
Some days when I get an email at school about our BOM, I wonder why are they asking me about quilting, then I remember that I am at school and they aren't talking about fabric or quilting. I think I need help!!!

So glad I found you! I live on Cumberland Island, GA. I just began my blog in Feb. and love finding new inspirations and motivations by looking at others.
I'm in love with this type of quilt! I'll have to give it a go once things slow down for me. BUsy time of the year here... I'll be back! XO

As long as they make you happy, intervention is not always necessary:) Some gorgeous guilts in the making!
