Well here it is Easter week…St. Patrick’s day is over (the corned beef and cabbage were yummy!), my son’s birthday is over, and Easter is coming up. I am almost done shopping; have to get a few more little things to put in the kids’ baskets and some various and sundry things for Easter dinner. Company is coming and we’ve been cleaning today. I decided it was really really time to clean the sewing room. Spools of thread, fat quarters of fabric, half-done projects are bursting out all over!
As I began to go through my shelves to tidy them up I couldn’t believe all of the UFO’s (unfinished objects) I found. And they still look nice! I oohed and aahed as I pulled out half-forgotten blocks from my hens and chicks quilt I started last Spring, the brights from some tablerunners I hope to get done for Spring, and all kinds of projects began and abandoned for who knows what reason?
Part of the reason is of course that I started up with my counted cross stitch again. I have really been enjoying that this year…but there must be a way I can do both!
Definitely time to get organized! May this year be the year of the Finished Projects for me…the year when I finally get all those lovely things sewn up and placed around the house for us to enjoy.
