I have made a list of all the unfinished items that I have so far found. I think rather than make a list of what to do each day, I should just hang a dart board with them listed, and when I finish one item, throw a dart for the next. That would keep me busy all year.
The lists consists of 22 quilts, several placemats, 12 sewing items plus the doll clothes, 1 pair of socks about half knitted and spinning for another plus the charity items I will make. This list only consists of items started. There is a much larger lists of things I’d like to do and for which I have the patterns and materials. But I also know that I need to do much more gardening than I did last summer. So I’m thinking that it might be a great idea to start with finishing some items already started with the option that I can start something new every couple of weeks.
Today, I went to the first box and pulled out these placemats which have patiently waited their turn. I am not sure what I was thinking because there are enough blocks cut out for seven, enough backings for 8 and batting for 4, and borders for 4 I have now cut out the red pieces for the 8th one and selected a different green for binding the next four. 4 are ready to for binding.
Please tell me some of you have projects like this. And then keep us updated as you pull them out and finish.
