Oh what have I gotten myself into?

Last night I started organizing all of my projects that I need to finish. Let me just say, again, that I am CRAZY!! I sat on the floor in the craft/piano/storage room last night trying to make some sense of my mess of projects. Mike stood over me saying "What are you doing? Why do you have so many projects?"

So what are all these projects? Well, I will tell you.

Numbers 1-8 involve the making of quilts, whether it's actually sewing the quilt tops or just quilting the quilt. Numbers 9 and 10 are Mother's Day gifts for relatives. Number 11 involves finishing a baby project that I started in November. Number 12 is making slipcovers, pillows, and curtains for the living room, although I've never done slipcovers or pillows, so we'll see how well it works out. Finally, Number 13 involves things for me that I have started but need to finish. YIKES!

I'm hoping to get 3 of the quilting projects ready to quilt today. I know for sure that one of them will be, but the second and third ones still need some sewing and cutting! As for the rest of the quilting projects, 3 need to be cut, 1 needs to be sewn together, and 1 is waiting at the shop to be quilted whenever I have time.

I will post pictures of my progress later. WISH ME LUCK! :)

I made a slipcover for my living room sofa a year ago, and put it on to finish fitting it, and I have never taken it back off. I pretty much like starting projects more than finishing them.

I still haven't put my decorations back on the walls since Christmas time. I can't get projects lined up or else I just set myself up for much guilt & failure:(

Good luck to you!
