Late yesterday evening I was working on the UFO above. My phone is just an arms reach away so I'm reading and responding to new emails and blog post as they come in. The house is silent, it gives my mind time to wander, think, contemplate life, well... my stitchy life. Anything deeper than that is just a migraine, so why bother with the big stuff. The forces that be are plenty capable of sorting out the big stuff. So my deep thoughts took me to here
It seems that at the beginning of the year everyone that has a blog has a WORD, a PLAN, a GOAL, they are keeping track of stash in and stash out, LISTS of this and LISTS of that. And me I'm just here stitching along, flying by the seat of my pants with not a care in the world. Doing whatever my A.D.H.D quilting style tells me to do.
Example: the picture below.
Yesterdays morning trip to the grocery store for milk and coffee. I came home with my grocery LIST items(see I can make a LIST) and a few beauty's(not on the list) from the LQS(which is about 10 miles out of my way).
I suppose if I had a business or insurance policy on my fabric I'd make a LIST inventorying them. Is there a prize for the most in or out, or for the most used in a year? Maybe I'm just not serious about my hobby. Oh don't get me wrong I'm not saying quilters shouldn't make these LISTS I'm just making excuses for why I don't. To be so organized is great, it's just not for me. Finding a WORD to define my year is hard enough but to start making LISTS is really pushing it. And then throw in the daunting task of knocking out UFO's. BRAIN CRAMP! There's plenty of UFO's for a list
To be honest I'm quite proud of the fact that I took the time last year to organize them in the storage bin and tote. Now I need to make an actual list of them?!
I drag them out from time to time just to see if something catches my eye and make a mental list, does that count in the LIST world? Seriously who doesn't want them done but they are hidden away for very valid reasons, right? The chances of me getting a few of them done this year are pretty good. The chances of me adding a few more is also pretty good. So I have a PLAN and a GOAL! Sorta...right?
Now what about that WORD that will define all I do in the next quilty year.
Honestly I can't think of a thing other than
