I recently joined an internet group called the Stashbusters. I have been lurking and enjoying all of the hustle and bustle of this very active group. For several years now, the internet is the only social life that I have had with like minded hobbyists.
They are in the midst of finishing up projects for 2019 and making lists for 2020.
They are extremely prolific, and I am overwhelmed. It is all a bit much for a girl who works a complicated schedule at her day job. For simplicity, I will say that I generally work split shifts six days a week.
Not very friendly for planning any kind of activities, let alone hobby projects.
I do think making a list will help me focus, so I have adapted Donna’s idea for myself. I will update the list as I complete the projects that I have on it. There will be ‘squirrel projects’, and that is okay.
I am keeping it simple; it is what I need. The list will be pinned to the bulletin board in my sewing studio. I want it where I will see it (otherwise there is no point)!
Something Old….I don’t have a photo of the Lone Star project. I began it a million years ago (maybe not that long, but a long time ago…in the 90’s). I will find it after I work on the Floral Reflections UFO. I do have photos of that project.
The pattern is out of print. I believe I also began this project sometime in the 1990’s. I have all twelve blocks fused. My next step is to machine applique the blocks.
Something new…I am currently working on the Vintage Ornaments quilt:
Creative play…Begun in January of this year, I bet those who have seen this project on the blog think I may have forgotten about the Candace project. Not so. She is waiting to be thread painted.
Handwork project…Drunkard’s Path…no photos…but I do have quite a few hand pieced blocks made.
Leader/Ender…Begun in 2018, I haven’t updated this project on the blog, but I have made lots of bow tie blocks, many more than this photo shows.
Scrap Project…RSC18. I made the Squared Away Sampler and it is waiting to be quilted.
This list will carry me into 2020. Maybe far, far into 2020. I am slow, but I do finish eventually. All that matters is to enjoy the journey.
