What I'd like to be doing is this...
But I'm not. Housekeeping is the order of the day - Sunday that is. Of course, I am hardly keeping house at the moment and instead have sat down to contemplate my growing pile of WIPs. My house is overrun in projects these days so I've decided now is the time to make a commitment, a goal, to finish something.
WIP Wednesday is a great day to take a moment to review your WIPs; but by the time Wednesday comes along I no longer have the inclination to set a goals for myself. Nope, that fresh start, what shall we accomplish this week, can do attitude is more of a Sunday thing for me. After visiting Lucy over at Charm About You earlier today I realized I am not the only one...and perhaps blogging about it will actually keep me committed to my goals. Look at the Tumbling Blocks Challenge and how far Helen's support has gotten me! (update on that below, by the by) I hereby dub this Sunday Sewing Stats.
Sewing Goals for the Week of September 11, 2011
- Hummingbirds & Hexagons: Quilt, begin possibly finish this week
- Across the Sea QAL: Finish Top, Aim to do back this next weekend
- Tumbling Blocks: Iron, Iron, Iron and check all points
- Everything else on hold [Botanika, Fall/Spring, Spinning Stars, Secret Project, 100 Quilts for Kids]
- Finish Chalkboard Project
- Complete Celebrate Color project
If you come back Wednesday hopefully I'll have made some progress on this list. Maybe.
Now about that challenge. I am happy to report that ALL 400 BLOCKS ARE FINISHED!!! Proof? What? You don't trust me?
|This looks suspicious right? Definitely not 400. No it isn't. It is 300!|
|The Final 100. Still in a chain.|
Actually it was touch and go for awhile. I had work obligations that I could not shirk...and spent much of my free time finishing jewelry for an impending wedding. But I plugged through and was able to finally finish all the tumbling blocks late late last night. In fact, as you can see, I haven't even had a chance yet to iron and cut them from their chain.
But - whew hew! They are done! Hmmm...now what will come next...I suppose they need to be sewn together don't they... Hahahahahaaa...
So the question is...how do you finish Your To Do list? What are your Sunday sewing stats?Do you need a little help from your friends as well? If so, let me know by leaving a comment and I'll pop over to offer fresh encouragement!
