This past year has been rough …. but I have decided to make things better I must actually do something CONSTRUCTIVE about it. So I am going to working on my weight and health, try and improve my mood by getting back to the things I love…. quilting, blogging and podcasting.
First thing …. evaluate my UFOs …. see what they need and get going on them. I have to know where I have been before I can decide where to go and what to do next.
I also have to decide what stops me from doing what I want and “destroying” whatever is blocking my goals ….. For example, I often say I need to clean the sewing area, the room, the house before I get started. Since I hate house cleaning I put it off for as long as I could till the day was gone. In the past I have found that if I jump into the quilting project I get energized for other things and then cleaning is not as much of a “chore” and I actually get around to doing it. Win-Win for me… I spend time doing the things I love and then actually have the energy and interest to do chores during or after my crafting time. ( I am always surprised at how much laundry I get washed and put away during my quilting time. After all I have to free up the washing machine to pre-wash fabric. )
I am going to stop blathering now and get to the point of this post. I am listing my shameful list of UFOs. Many of these projects I have blogged about before so they will look old to you. I start many project because I get intrigued by a technique or a pattern that I want to try. I get started then I stop because something happens in life or I hit a roadblock in my quilting or I have lost interest in the project. This year my goal is to finish my UFOs.
HERE is my incomplete list of projects ….
