Good Morning! Well, it’s morning for me anyway. I’ve had a busy week and I keep thinking about writing here, but then I don’t have pictures of a lot of stuff, so I don’t. I’ve decided that that is going to end. I’m going to try to write even without pictures. I will just have to try to paint a picture for you with my words sometimes. This morning I’m working on a quilt that is going to be a gift, but I keep falling asleep at my sewing machine. I really don’t know why other than it’s psychological because I’m at a tedious part of the quilt, putting a lot of little pieces together. I also realized that I only have about half of the half square triangle squares that I need…..ugh! This quilt is already a year late and I want to finish it. I tried for a change of pace and went downstairs to THE ROOM to look for a different project to work on. There were many to choose from and I decided that the best course was to stick with the one I’m working on and finish it. I REALLY need to start finishing projects before I start anything new. I’m hoping this will motivate me because I have some new projects that I need to start and finish on a deadline.
Maybe if I list some of my current projects it will help me organize my brain so that I can finish them.
1. Gift Quilt
2. Hem jeans (they’re mine…I currently have only 2 comfortable pairs)
3. Danielle’s Quilt (almost 2 years late)
4. Shorten straps on sundress for my niece.
5. Hem coveralls for hubby for work.
There are a lot more little projects, but I’m sticking with the major ones. I would like to finish 1,2,4 & 5 in the next 2 weeks so that I can make Christmas cards and ornaments for Christmas in July at the Market. I will have to squeeze the cards and ornaments in between somewhere because Christmas in July is July 23rd…..2 weeks from now. Then I’ll finish 3 so that I can start on some new projects. First on my list is a throw quilt for the hubby. We picked out all the fabrics together a couple months ago and I created a pattern for it. He’ll be upset if it’s not done for the cooler weather this fall. I have a few other quilts to make also for my family and crafts to make in between for the Market. I’ll be happy if the quilt tops are at least done by Christmas.
I’m not sure this is helping….starting to feel like it’s impossible to do all that. I made some iced tea for a caffeine boost so back to work for me. Hopefully, I’ll remember to update this tonight.
Have a Creative Day!
