I’m getting a little uptight because I feel as though I have too many things on the go at the same time which is not like me at all.
Generally speaking, I’m kind of obsessive about seeing something through to it’s completion before moving on to something new. Lately however, I find that there are so many projects that I want to do but doubt that there are enough days left in this lifetime to even put a dent in my ‘to do’ list, and I’m finding this a little overwhelming.
Currently, I have two projects on the go and I just started a third. Yikes! All three of them involve a tremendous amount of handwork, which I love. The one I just started is called Red Radiance and it’s a redwork quilt that appeared in the December 2000 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting, my favorite magazine. I wasn’t quilting back then so one of the gals in my guild kindly loaned me her copy.
Projects with a lot of handwork seem to take forever before any progress is noticeable. I promised myself that I would not start another quilt til I finish one of the three that are currently on the go.
I refuse to allow myself to use the dreaded UFO term. Instead, I would rather refer to them as WIP’s…or Works In Progress…because I do routinely switch from one to the other and by doing that, I don’t become bored with any of them and they all stay current.
Am I the only one who obsesses about UFO’s/WIP’s?
