I've Got a Plan

 Today was a day of finishing as well as some sorting and planning. I took all my Civil War reproduction fabrics and put them together, sorting them into their different colours. They usually reside in a large tub which corrals them together but makes it hard for me to select when I need a particular colour. At the moment they are arranged on a spare bed but I do plan to put them into separate drawers so it will make it easier for me to prepare blocks for the applique projects on which I am currently working, or  should be working if I had prepped the blocks.
 I have also listed four projects I want to work on to completion. Actually there are five and that doesn't count a couple which just need to be quilted.I'm trying to stop myself starting new projects because it would be easier to do that than getting some finishes done. I'm hoping some forward planning will help me to focus on finishing some quilts for me. I wonder if anyone else has too many projects they are working on? Please let me know that I'm not the only one.
  With the donation quilts and blankets I don't have a problem at all and just focus on each one until they are done.I finished off another QAYG quilt and crocheted blanket today and hope I can share one of my own finishes very soon. Probably one reason they stall is because I don't have a deadline for them or else I want to try fancier quilting designs and "fear of messing it up" stops me from starting.
 Oh dear I just remembered another project I should add to the list! I'd better get one finished before I add any more or I might just think it's too hard and start something new- because you know I want to don't you?
 Hugs, Jan Mac

You are kidding, aren't you? Who among us has NO UFOs and WIPs! I have just added to my own queue of projects today at ACQ...two kits and some fabulous fabric! (And a deposit on a new sewing machine - YAAAAY!)
