How did you do on the UFO you chose to work on last week?
I did pretty good — I finished cutting up all the homespun fabric into strips, and then pieced 33 blocks of the first quilt! I’ll hopefully be done with these and have it all gone soon. I saved the largest pieces for the backings, and that should finish off the entire stash, and I’ll have two empty tubs to use for something else (or just get rid of).
I had a hard time coming up with something that I wanted to do this week. I’m still having motivation issues! I can’t seem to get back into full gear yet this year — my slumps don’t usually last this long, and it’s annoying.
But I’ve slowly been working my way through my magazine pile, so that’s what I’ve chosen to concentrate on this week:
I’ve already sorted through several over the last few days (just as a procrastination tool), so now I’m going to concentrate on them even more, and hopefully get rid of the pile in my office floor once and for all and have them all put away or gone.
I also have a couple boxes of books that I still have not unpacked since we moved in here three years ago. Every time I want one, I go digging through boxes — not convenient at all.
So I hope to get at least some of those unpacked and put where they belong, even though I believe this project will not get done in one week, and it’ll be an ongoing task.
How about you?
Did we do this task often enough last year that yours are completely under control?
Or have you let them get out of control and pile up again in places they shouldn’t?
Even if I didn’t have any more coming in periodically, I’d still have to work on this occasionally, because the ones I’m keeping are the ones I love, and I get them out and look through them. I’m not always real diligent about putting them away when and where I should! (I know this revelation shocks you.)
So there’s our task for this week. Some of you will find it super easy, and some of you will be like me, and have a job ahead of you — good luck!
