Yes, that is me! I have been trying to work on a rotation with all my WIPs which I hear works so well for many stitchers out there. It has left me feeling like I work a little on each project never nearing a finish. Of course, it does not help that I have so many project going at once.
So I decided to deviate from my fickle ways and concentrate on a project until it is finished. I had my fickle moments of decisions of course too. Which to choose??? I love them all and want them all finished. With no fairy godmother in sight, I just had to use the 'eeny, meeny, miny, moe' method and my 'Giggly Girls' won. Now my last update of the 10 Virgins can be seen here on my old blog. It has been a long while so it was high time to give these ladies some attention. I am really enjoying watching this wonderful sampler that Gigi created come together.
I have many projects waiting on finishing also so I decided to try and set a goal to finish at least two projects a month. I am also trying to use more of what I have instead of buying more. I have two of my Ohio samplers ready for framing. This one has been now framed in a frame that I got out of my frame basket. I love buying a pretty or unusual frame when I see it. I keep them all together in a basket. It did not fit well since I had planned on a smaller frame but liked how this one looked with the design. Time for creative thinkng. When I have a problem with my linen being to tight a fit to lace the stitching, I sew it like a pillow case using muslin on the back. The nice thing about this way of framing is that it also fits tightly when cardboard is inserted. Excuse the poor lighting on the photo. I was too anxious to do a blog entry and it is too late in the evening for my camera to get a good shot.
I have not been quilting since I got sick but decided that I want to start doing a little. Right now I need to get a large stack of fabrics traced and cut for my second charm quilt for this year. This is a true charm quilt with anything goes. It is going to be simply colorful and fun. My first charm quilt (made early in the year) is fast becoming one of my favorite quilts and very useful for a chilly evening.
Do you do a project rotation for your WIPs? Do you find it works for you? Please console me and tell me that you have stacks of things awaiting your attention... *grins*
