UFO Sunday - Have Fun!

It's UFO Sunday and I'm still away from home and all my many unfinished projects. Being gone for so long (I'll be returning home this Thursday), I've been taking some time to review the projects I have in progress and decide what I want to focus on when I get back home.

I'm definitely going to jump back on Duchess Reigns. That quilt literally had to be folded up and placed in a corner to make time for other projects and it will be very nice to pull her out and finish up the outlining.

Also on my plate is the 365 quilt, which is nearly done, but still lacking a border. It's going to be a big job to get the border attached at this stage, but definitely necessary to finish off the full set of 365 squares.

My biggest goal when I get home is to start working on these big projects a little big daily, rather than in fits and spurts. The key I think is to just make it fun, and as soon as a project feels overwhelming to set it aside and pick up another. Between Duchess Reigns, 365, and Express Your Love, I have a lot to play with when I get home!

Now what about you? What are you having fun with today?

Let's go quilt,

  1. I just moved into a new place where I have a sewing room again. The last place I was all cramped in a corner and it was hard to do anything.

    Then I pulled out all my quilt tops waiting to be quilted and... OOPS. Super huge pile! Plus some clothing I want to sew, and some I haven't cut in to yet and.. .it looks like I'll be busy for quite a while.

    I think you're right - just do a little bit at a time. I also sorted things out into a pile of stuff that was *almost* finished. If I work on that, it will seem like I made a ton of progress at once!

    I even posted a picture to Flickr.

    Wish me luck!
