I have been quilting forever. Frank has been in the oil and gas industry for 40 years this year and I started quilting after we got married when he was in the Air Force. I made my very very first quilt for my mother and I have no idea what happened to it.
So I have a lot of stuff. And I mean a lot of stuff.
I spent the day yesterday pulling more stuff out of the corner of my room. You would think my room is Donald Trump HUGE or at least the corners should take up most of the room. But unfortunately it was just a small corner piled high. I think I am down to no more quilts in the corner. (Cross your fingers)
But if you look at the sidebar I have added a tremendous amount of work.
I do have a quilt that I would like to make for Frank for his birthday in April. But now I feel guilty about starting a new quilt!
All that pressure to get that stuff done is the one good reason not to clean out the corner of my room.
Carol noted I feel compelled to finish the unfinished. I do! I was told not to waste things so i am trying to finish these and maybe gift them to people I think deserve one.
Use a whiney voice here: I just can't throw them ooouuuut!
I completed 22 or 23 quilts last year so I'm going to have to start and work pretty hard to get that much done so I can clear out some of those backlog. I think this will also reduce a lot of my stash when I try to find backs for all of these things in the waiting line. And bindings for them as well.
So I guess as I go along this year my goal will be to to reduce two big things. First the backlog of quilts number and the number on my scale.
I think I have truly found my word for this year ----- REDUCTION!
