End of Year Reckoning

WIP OrganizationThat sounds rather ominous, doesn’t it? 2015 is rapidly winding down and this week feels like a good time to take inventory of my works in progress (WIPs). I think I skipped this entirely last year and things have gotten out of control. I’m preparing to overhaul and organize my sewing room so I will have to face these piles and bins one way or another. WIP Organization

My full list is {here} but it’s way….way…way too long. I have it broken down into categories which supposedly helps me stay motivated to finish things. I’m laughing as I type that.  My plan is to work on nothing but these categories for the entire first quarter of 2016.  There’s plenty here to keep me busy for the entire year but I have to indulge my desire for NEW projects as some point. Feed the fabric beast, you know.

PIECING – ALMOST COMPLETE: Just needs a few more blocks/sashing/etc.

COMPLETED TOP: Time to baste!

QUILTING & BINDING: Self-Explanatory

 

 

WIP Organization

There are so many finished quilt tops that it’s really ridiculous. I made myself a simple printable to organize those so I can do some shopping for bindings and backings while the end of year sales are happening. It’s very likely that I have a lot in my stash I can use. (Why is that so hard to do?!?!?!)

You can download the printable for yourself {here}. The font I’ve used for the form fields is A Gentle Touch which you can download for free. If you don’t have it installed on your computer, it will default to a basic font.

See you all in 2016!

  1. I printed out five pages of your form. What does that tell you??! I feel like I destashed so much fabric in fall, yet I see stacks of fabric everywhere. And scraps–I’m feeling somewhat suffocated. I think I will give myself until the 15th to get things in better order, at which point hopefully I have the energy and desire to start sewing again!
