Looking Ahead

     I went upstairs to work this weekend and I reached "it". "It" is my acceptable limit of the number of pieces sitting in my workbasket. Works in process or, quite bluntly, works unfinished. I get so excited about trying something new, that I just don't finish things. I didn't even start a list of finished quilts in 2010. That's another topic called neglecting the blog and how it looks. But one feeds into the other. So, a list and it might even be added to . Accountability. Why I decide this during the holidays each year, I have no idea. Ah yes, the list.

Works in process
1. Loving Lucy
2. The L series -#1
3. The L series- #2
4. The L series-  # 3
5. Australian scrap quilt
6. Red/Blue quilt
7. Charity quilts-2
8. Crinkle quilt
9. Silk Quilt
10. The Moon
11. Joy

Impressive, isn't it ? But I  know you have a similar place where you peek into with horror every once in awhile. Or maybe not. If you are very good about finishing things, don't tell me please.

Goal: By the end of the year have 7 done, photographed and entered into a page type format on my blog.

Plan: Lots of machine quilting needs to be done. FOCUS. With a clear vision of the goal.

Another goal-shoot in manual rather than auto mode-bear with me.

                                                                      Joy, 2010

One done , 6 more to go.

Off to volutnteer and pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child this week. Posts will be lighter but still there.

Be creative, my friends!


  1. Colleen, Love this piece! Don't be so hard on yourself in getting things done that it is not enjoyable. I am guilty too of not finishing projects, but eventually I plan on getting them done. After all it only took me 10+ years to get my Millennium Quilt done!

  2. I seem to do better with a list to kick me into gear but I certainly don't make goals every week!

    Thanks-the colors aren't showing up on my computer right-either camera or monitor.

  3. oh yes...I have quite an impressive to be finished one day list as well!
