No fabric added or used this week.
I’m feeling frustrated lately that it takes so long for me to finish anything. I realize I need more time in the sewing room, which is much easier said than done. Because I have so many deadlines at work I tend not to push myself when it comes to things I enjoy. Creating without deadlines is my guilty pleasure.
All of this got me thinking about how I handle my work deadlines. When I have to finish something (taxes) by a certain date and I don’t enjoy doing it, I tackle that task first before the day can get away from me. I usually start before I need to in case there are unforeseen delays. Then it’s done and I don’t have to think about it anymore or worry about missing the deadline and getting my employer fined, or worse yet, audited.
It’s a system that works well. Can you see where this is going?
So after lunch yesterday I quilted the Stitching to Dye piece, squared it up and cut the facing pieces.
Quilting will never be my favorite part of the process. I just need to learn to treat it like taxes.
