In reading blogs the other day this post made me pause. Cheeky is determined to let her “CCD” rule and start ALL. THE. THINGS! Why do we desire to start before we’ve finished other projects? Is it like falling in love or having a crush? We crave the excitement we feel as we plan and dream and scheme. The rush of adrenaline or the thrill of the chase? Whatever it is, I am letting it rule for a bit. Giving myself a free pass to start something unplanned might make me less likely to chuck the Goals & Challenges.
This project was already in the January OMG plans, but I was resisting since I didn’t have all the other boxes ticked. I just need to remember G&C’s are something to work towards, not an absolute, do or die, stick a needle, eek, stop!
Here are fabric auditions for Grandma’s Sewing Basket.
So, what do you think? Which do you prefer? High contrast. more subdued? I preferred the subdued, so cut I did, but I decided to go with 3 motifs instead of 5. Five was just too much.
Now to start stitching around all those petals! I am not sure I can take it! If I do a little bit each day it will get done. Just like the baby quilt I am hand quilting. Instead of trying to get it all done at once, I am chipping away at the blocks and sashings, adding a little each day. It’s great stitching for Netflix binging!
