Help!!!!

So, I’ve spent several months just kind of moving along in several areas without really being excited about sewing/quilting. I’ve made progress on the paper piecing of my eldest daughter’s Christmas tree skirt. (Haven’t started the one for the youngest daughter and her hubby yet.) I started the Falling Charms quilt and the Disappearing Pinwheel. I signed up for the 2014 Designer Mystery BOM at the Fat Quarter Shop. I did a little stitching (and a lot of reading) in preparation for learning to machine appliqué. I fell in love with another BOM that would utilize both piecing and machine appliqué, but I haven’t yet signed up for that one. (Available here or here or here. And if we really want to confess something, I would love to make this kit and maybe even a couple of others, but I don’t usually like kits. And we’ve gotten started on the church quilt for this year, but that is not entirely on me.

So what’s missing from all of these things? Finishes! Where is the mojo for actually completing something? Does someone have a shot of that that they could send me? Please! Before I start something else that I may or may not regret starting!

  1. Which one is closest to being completed? What if you make it a leader/ender project so it gets done without thinking about it. I have used even long borders/seams as my leader/ender on quilts.

  2. I think most of us do this so don’t feel alone. I have so many unfinished projects that are taking up my closet it’s crazy. Sometimes I have to stop and think about why I haven’t finished something. Too boring? Too hard? Or it’s a thing of missing something..right thread color, hard to find fabric or supplies and things like that. Once you figure out what you are missing, it helps to start up again. Good luck!

  3. I feel your pain. No finishes here either. I told myself this time in Texas would be a good time to finish Scrapitude and Double Pinwheel, but here I am surfing the net again. I’m finding it very hard to concentrate. Ok, I’ll stop whining now and go back to finding your book review for today. Sorry I’m no help.
