So Many Projects So Little Time

I had to do my least favorite thing today…clean up my sewing area.  I wanted to sew but I couldn’t find my sewing machine.  It was buried under papers and fabric and rulers and scraps.  After two hours and a little help from my lovely daughter, I finally found my machine!  I might actually be able to sew tomorrow. I’m so excited I can barley stand it.  I haven’t been able to sew since before my surgery.  I hope I remember how. 

While I was cleaning I came to a very sad conclusion…I have more fabric than I know what to do with.  More started projects than I care to count.  And more ideas than I can seem to get down on paper.  Will I ever accomplish anything other than starting new projects?  I’m not so sure.  When I think of a new pattern I can’t wait to try it out.  I ripped open one of the Salt Air charm packs yesterday and I cannot wait to make something.  I was really on the fence about this collection but I have to say.  I love it!  Here’s a little sneak peek.  The picture is not the greatest but I was afraid to climb up on the stool like I usually do.  I had visions of falling to the floor and injuring my new back.

Believe me the picture does not do justice.  This fabric is awesome!

So I’ve decided to join Quilter in the Gap’s 2012 Finish-a-Long.  Maybe this will help me finish some of my UFO’s.

I’m going to put three things on my list of things to finish in the first quarter of 2012.

  1. Make something with my lovely Salt Air charm pack
  2. Finish my dear step mom’s quilt I started months ago
  3. Quilt a customer’s quilt

                    UFO 3

Other non-quilt related items would include blogging more, continue to organize our blog, designing more patterns, and start making video tutorials.  Boy my list is long.  I feel overwhelmed.  I think I better take it one day at a time.

How about everyone else?  Do you have a huge list of things you need to get finished?  Surely I’m not the only quilter who can’t keep up with myself.

One more thing before I go.  I’ve been following the 100 Days of Modern Quilting and they have a great tutorial posted today.  How to make half rectangle triangles {HRT}.  They look so cool!  I can’t wait to try that out now!  Check it out…especially if you love modern quilts.

I can’t wait to sew tomorrow!  Can you see me doing my happy dance?

  1. Vicki, I’m so glad you get to start sewing tomorrow, now don’t over do it! I am like you… many projects and of course many new ones I want to start! I want to do the Quilter in the Gap’s Finish-a-long but didn’t get signed up in time with a post. I am planning on still getting a post up tomorrow with a few for this quarter. Good luck and I love your Salt Air charms, can’t wait to see what you make!
