Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Time Management

I tend to be overly optimistic on how much I can get accomplished in a sewing session. Last week with the New Year’s Day holiday, I thought I could easily get the Lone Star Sweatshirt completed for my friend. Little did I know I wouldn’t have the entire day to sew. And that’s where my time management runs into trouble. I neglect to account for the unexpected.

That in turn turns into UFOs. Either the calendar deadline –birthday, or holiday –or my self imposed deadline passes without me finishing the project and then I’m off to the next project with a deadline. As a result, I have 32 projects in various stages which were started prior to Jan 1st. That doesn’t include the 32 quilt tops that need quilting.

So, in theory, I’m going to work on one project until I get it done — or at least to the next stage — can’t expect miracles.

The lone star is ready for me to turn the edges. Once I get them all turned, I remove the neck band on the store bought sweatshirt, I’ll applique it to the shirt and add a bit of quilting, before putting the neckband back on.
