Tried to start a new topic under project discussions but it won't open anything up.
So, I figured I'd just add one here.
I have been hoping to getting some of my projects done that have been sitting in the closet. I started with one of the quilts. I had bought material for a quilt for my granddaughter about 6 years ago and never got around to starting it until now. So I cut out all the blocks and will sew them all together tomorrow. Her 11th birthday is in September and I hope to have it finished by then. We do have a new grandchild coming in Aug/Sept so I want to get as much done as possible before that. I am hand quilting it so I hope to get everything else done quickly so I will have time to do that.
I am also going to look into using this for one of my badges.

Have a great day!

Good luck, Denise! I look forward to a photo when you get it done. I completely understand that UFO/UFP stash that keeps piling up. Several years ago, I went through all of my stuff like that and pretty much gave it all away. Since then, I only do one project at a time and try and keep from buying the supplies for something that catches my eye but then never gets done. It is hard because I always find fabric and craft ideas that I want to do. But, I think as I have grown older, I realize that my desire is greater than my dedication to actually making the project. I also realize that the time it actually takes to do all of these cute ideas, takes time that I want to do other things as well. It has been a long struggle to tamp down my interest and reframe it in my current reality. For me, however, when I commit to a project, I feel good about the time it does take and I actually want to see it completed in a short frame of time. The result is that my projects end up getting finished and then I can enjoy what I made or use it for the gift I had intended. I love making things for our MJF swaps because it allows me to do something fun but isn't a big huge project that takes months to finish.

Winnie I understand your joy in doing the smaller projects for MJF! I have so many projects going on, but doing things for MJF are small enough, not to mentiohave a timeline (though I have been late at times!)

Denise I too am looking forward to your quilt! I have started a few, but have not finished any yet!

I probably won't do any projects other than gardening till the Fall months. I am finishing up VBS tomorrow at my church and then I have a couple of out-of-town trips with my husband so rather than start and be interrupted, I just put it all off till everything settles down.

The first 2 blocks went great, the third is aptly name Patience Corners but I did manage to get it to come out right and after finishing a row on the 4th block my machine decided to have fits. All is fixed now though so will work on the rest of that block and a couple more tomorrow. There are twelve blocks or squares or whatever you want to call them. So many of them involve triangles so getting those points right can be a challenge. I am enjoying learning the different patterns and their names. Hoping it comes out as well as I imagine it to look.

So the top is done. Working today on cleaning and sorting through projects to keep and those to get rid of. Must downsize my crafting to only what I know I will actually get accomplished.

I just downsized some Sunday school materials. I hated to do it, but I can only hold on to so much. It's probably the same with craft supplies and projects. :)

Caron,
I only have a small closet to keep them in and sometimes that seems to get out of hand. Lol. So, I must get realistic about which ones I will actually work on. I still have more to go through and decide on but it is going quite well. It has cause me to rethink my set up.
