I hope ....
Yesterday I went to my friend J's for the day, and the plan was to sew our little fingers to the bones. (Don't worry, there was also going to be gossip and food involved!) I decided I'd quilt a table topper the day before so I could hand sew the binding down while I was there, since I knew that J would want to work on a special quilt she's making.
Anyway, over the coffee and choccie biccies that are an essential start to our days, we started talking, and it turns out that J was feeling rather the same.
That's when we had a light-bulb moment.
We both had the same problem - we were feeling completely overwhelmed by the number of projects that we had on the go at the same time.
So we came up with a solution - we were not going to start anything new until we had actually finished a few things.
So J got out her first ever quilt, which only needed binding, and she cut and sewed binding strips together and then sewed them onto the quilt. Now she will sew the binding down on the back, and that will be a finished quilt. (There will be photos in a couple of weeks, when it's finished - it's a stunning quilt.) I sewed the binding on my table topper, then I took it all off cos I had not done it carefully enough, so I had cut off every single point. This morning I sewed it back on, and now it just needs sewing down. (I've just pinned it to the back for now so I could take a photo to prove to J that I had done it!)
So now I'll move on to something else, which will probably be my Country Charmer quilt, but may be my Diamond Drops, or I may finish another couple of table toppers. I don't know yet, but what I do know is that all of a sudden I want to sew again.
