I'm okay with that.
I tend to lose sight of my accomplishments, though, because my "To Do" list never shrinks. It just shifts.
So...For accountability & motivation, I've documented my UFO's here:
Long Arm UFO's
I've also linked up with a variety of "linky parties". Deadlines are a very good thing.
Today I'm linking up with Fresh Sewing Day over at Lily's Quilts and A Stitch in Time at Such a Sew and Sew to show my January finishes.
Tasks Completed in January:
|Finished piecing this top (it's next up for quilting).|
Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin
|My oldest UFO, abandoned after my first piecing class.|
Piecing now finished.
|This TOTALLY counts as a finish!|
Cleaned and organized my sewing space.
|Finished preparing strip sets for an upcoming kaleidoscope workshop.|
|Pieced and finished this charity quilt using blocks and bits supplied by guild members.|
|Finished this sweet, flannel baby quilt.|
|Made this modern baby to send off to our nieces.|
They are expecting their first baby in May!
Finished a couple of pesky chores, like adding a hanging sleeve, and making a dog bed from an old practice piece.
I feel like I can breathe in my space again.
Not only have I cleared it physically, but cleaning up old UFO's and nagging tasks has cleared it emotionally.
Listing UFO's has allowed me to SEE them and give them the attention they deserve. Making myself accountable by going public has been a powerful motivation to get them checked off the list!
How do you motivate yourself to finish what you start?
Try, Learn, Grow!
