Clearing up old projects.....
I am in the midst of clearing up old projects be it stitching, quilting or sewing. I have so many things I want to do that I start 1001 things at once. I am not allowing myself to start anything new until I have worked through a number of the projects that have been sitting around.
Yesterday, I decided to grab a tote where I have thrown a number of my stitching projects in unfinished. I sorted through things and got out an adorable French freebie I started while I was on vacation last May in the Alsace. I really want to finish this sweet little design as it is going to be my next pillow on our bed. I took it with my for my lacemaking evening as I had already finished the lace ornament we were working on.
In the bottom of that tote, I found this little strawberry. I had sewn it over a year ago but never put the green top on it. I promptly took a short break to sew the green on. How silly! It only took me about 10 minutes to finish and it sat in that tote forever waiting to be done. It feels great to get a few of these projects finished. I know I am not alone in wanting to start far too many things at once. It seems to be an 'illness' all stitchers/quilters suffer from.
