To do or not....that is the question
Do you ever work on a project and wonder why you ever started it? I have a quilt I've been working (or not working) on for over a year. I purchased the kit from Keepsake Quilting last year intending on completing it for my church's Journey to Bethlehem auction last year. Well, for some reason I just couldn't get the oomph to keep going on it and didn't get it done in time. So, I put it away and thought "I'll keep it and get it done for next year." Well, it's next year and over a month ago I pulled it out and looked at it and thought okay...I have enough time to complete it. Well, here it is and the auction is a week and a half away and I'm still not done! I haven't put the time in my sewing room to get it done. I don't know why I'm resisting getting it done. Is it the applique (not my favorite thing to do...don't know why I picked this pattern!), is it the color (not my favorite colors...don't know why I picked this!) or is it wondering how I'm going to quilt it?? Whatever the reason, it's downstairs in my sewing room and I need to finish it. They'd like to have it this Sunday and I know I can't get it done by then but I know I can complete it by auction night, the 11th. Still wishing I had picked something else though!
