Manic Monday

I spent this last weekend at my mom and dad's house and mom and I spent most of Saturday sewing.  As I was unloading all the things I brought with me from the car and talking with my mom I found I had an extreamly long list of projects I wanted to work on or was midproject on.  So how do you decide?  My good friend L and I were talking yesterday and we were looking at different projects and talking about our Farmer's Wife QAL blocks and I was telling her how much I wanted to do the Summer Sampler Series because I thought it would be a good chance to learn some new skills.  Of course that starts today and I haven't even looked at materials to use for it yet. 

Just because I hate a post with no pictures here is one of my "kids" sunbathing.
With new quilt alongs popping up almost daily in blog land and a seemingless endless amount of inspiration on flickr how do you decide which projects to join in on?  Do you have a method?  I think I look at projects and pick fabric around that mostly.  But every once in a while I find myself searching for a project to fit some sort of precut I purchased or some fabric I just had to have.  This method works but with a growing list of projects I want to do and not enough hours in the day to do them all I'm wondering how to edit this list.  What do you do to keep it manageable?

  1. Manageable? What an interesting idea. Honestly I tend to have specific things I'd like to make ie. a lap quilt to replace an old one or a baby blanket for a new arrival. If something works then I'll join otherwise I tend to admire from a far.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
