I hate to be the one to tell you Dear Peeps but 2020 is fast looming on the horizon, and that’s got me thinking. (I can hear your sigh – it’s ok, it’s not bad!)
It appears, over the years, I’ve acquired at shops and shows quite a number of small projects, patterns and kits – through no fault of my own, obviously. Said purchases were usually preceded by words along the lines of “Oh, that’s so sweet/useful. I really NEED that kit/project/pattern” and rapidly followed, post purchase, by “Ooh, I could make that this weekend/week”, which, as you can see by the pic below, did NOT happen! (Notice the word NEED not WANT in the above sentence – I’m very selective in my verbs when it comes to quilt related shopping!)
They are lovely projects; bags, pin cushions, needle cases, embroideries, small slow stitching to frame…… These little makes, instead of being done immediately
were thrown haphazardly are stored lovingly in a box and every now and then they call out to me. But I can resist The Call no longer and have decided that I shall tackle a small kit/project/pattern each month during 2020.
So at the beginning of each month, I’ll choose the project to make and sometime during that month it will (hopefully) be made. That is, finished! All done! By the end of the year I could have 12 new accoutrements (and possibly some Christmas gifts. How’s that for being prepared?).
Surely, I can’t be the only one with this Unmade-Acquisition Problem? If you’re a “collector” too, are your little projects calling out to be made? Are you in?
January 2nd is scheduled to begin Project 1 which will be…….?? Sorry, I might just have to leave you while I work on the fraught decision of which one I’m going to start on first………enney, meeney, miney……..
