I wasn’t at the bee today, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t thinking about quilting. I have two Kathaumixw billets from the Manila Chamber Choir and we were kept busy all day driving them here and there (and picking them up from here and there), and feeding them in between.
Since joining the Guild I have learned about UFOs and Flimsies. But is there a cute little name for projects that are underway (but far from complete)? When I started quilting I told myself I was going to work on one thing at a time (that worked for about five weeks). I have been crafting for years and it seems that whatever box, cupboard or drawer I pull out I’m confronted with an unfinished knitting, crocheting, or embroidery project.
In my thoughts today were the two UFOs I have, as well as the six projects I have made some sort of start on. And I won’t even tell you how many kits and patterns I have collected, or the number of patterns I’ve bookmarked on my iPad.
So how do you keep it all straight? Do you look at your projects and work on whatever you feel like? Do you look at your projects and pick something that you can finish in the time you have for sewing at that particular time? Do you live by the calendar and have things that have to get done by such and such a date and therefore that becomes your priority?
Before I get too many more things started, I’d be interested in hearing how you keep track of your quilting projects.
