Quilting, and other domesticities

I'm starting a new quilt! I've made 4 already, two that required piecing according to a pattern, and two that were made out of 4" flannel squares sewn together in a pattern. I am now making a log cabin quilt. I have one more round to put on all the squares (the last light and the last dark), and then I will be done making the squares. The I need to square them up, and sew them together. The comes bored #1 and border #2, then backing and batting, binding, and finally quilting. Each of the squares should end up about 14" square, and it's going to be 4 blocks by 6 blocks. This is going to be a pretty big quilt. We'll see how my machine manages that. I don't have a long arm or anything, so I don;t know if all the fabric will roll up to fit under my quilt arm.

I am terribly domestic. I sew, quilt, knit, bake, cook, clean. I will make someone a great little housewife someday. Ugh, gag me with a spoon! Not that there's anything wrong with that, but at this stage of my life, that is like the last thing I want. What I want, is a great job (or hell, a job that pays!) and to get out of my parents house. We're all going a little crazy. Well, when I get the latest quilt done, I'll post pictures. I should take pics of my last quilt too. It turned out pretty cool.
