Now if you are a pilot, that means just one thing..."don't make changes, stay put doing what you are doing". But I'm NOT a pilot, would be nice, but I'm not. What I have are alot of "quilt beginnings" that are in a holding pattern of their own. I have said it on my blog, I'm a great "beginner", not such a good "ender". The results of "holding patterns" are what we quilters call UFOS. Unfinished objects...ug! Unlike income tax, quilts are fun to begin..
and after you've begun and the excitment wears off, you're suppose to stick to it and finish it up. Right?
And that's what I have lots of in my sewing room, the tops I didn't 'stick to and finish'.
It's not that I NEVER finish things, just not as regularily as I should. I'm happy to say I've managed to finish up hundreds over the years, but must confess to having somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 to 60 that are still "just beginnings". The days slip by with little meaning to me, time is a relative thing you know. I seem to have all the time in the world, although it would be nice to have those projects in the hands of their new owners. A 43 degree(brrrrr)morning found me realizing that autumn is coming swiftly, very very swiftly. I think I'll shift gears and see what I can get finished by the end of the year. Four months and 7 days til New Years Eve.....I think I can finish at least 5 quilts in that time. Anybody want to play along? Set a number or goal for yourself and keep me company?? Please? *VBS* Hugs to all!!
