Yes, that is how I am working at my quilting today. "More positive" describes my attempt.
But! (Yes, a "but.") We missed home! I missed my sewing machine and my projects, my friends. While away, I did little with social media. I think that was somewhat good. I realize I enjoy sharing what I am making and finding out what others are working on.
I read a post by my friend Elizabeth at OPQuilt.com and I, too, need to use a paper calendar. I will see what I have committed to doing, upcoming events, and better plan my blog posts.
I decided to sew up projects that are stacking up instead of moving them back and forth, here and there in my room. I'm calling it Get It Done--Don't Move It! I've wasted productive time moving things around.
Today, the first thing I saw was fabric for a pillowcase for my son-in-law. Half of it was cut. I completed and packaged it to mail out tomorrow! Oh, how happy that makes me. I will move on, one project at a time, and am sure I will make progress.
Now, off to get the calendar and fill in my quilting commitments.
How do you keep focused on your projects?
That is so strange. I filled in my paper calendar this morning. And I told my husband I'm going to work from stacks instead of trying to find some place to put everything. I'm finding fabric that I can't remember what I was going to do with it. I'm working on a solution for that now and not just another stack. I wonder how long we will last?
Welcome home. It's always good to go, but great to come home too.
Being in Florida for a month sounds pretty good to me but I would miss my sewing too. Quite exciting to clean out and pull together a new space for your crafting and sewing. Enjoy the new space and organization. I could use the 'Get it Done' approach too but this year I'm just trying to make more with what I have and so far it's going pretty well. My social media participation has fallen way off the rails though.
I wish we had been able to meet in person while you were in Florida!
I would miss my sewing room while here too, but the advantage is I have sewing things here and duplicates in our location for the summer.
Your pillowcase fabric is adorable! My grandson would surely love it.
I love paper journals and calendars. I have both going even though I have all my appointments on my phone calendar. I just like having the paper there to see at a glance.
