How many is too many?
About a month ago, I was feeling a little overwhelmed by my unfinished projects. I really didn’t even know how many I had. I decided to buy plastic totes for each project to help quantify the craziness. I bought eight. It didn’t take long to fill them up. This doesn’t even count two hand projects that I keep in the family room.
I only sorted projects with fabric actually cut up. I have more fabric that I’m anxious to cut up. Before I do that I’ve decided I need to tame this pile. Which brings up the question, how any projects is too many? For the record, eight is too many. I also know that two isn’t enough. I need options. In my head, I’m thinking perhaps 4-5 is reasonable.
So what does this mean? I need to get busy. There are quilts that I want from this pile. I’ll be really happy when they are done. So far, I’ve knocked out a couple of pillows. One charity quilt is on the road to completion. If I can complete just one more project, I can start to think about all the new fabric I want to buy and new quilt patterns I want to try.
