Current Projects

Sorry, nothing much to see. I’m working on this page 🙂 Come back in a few weeks!

A while back I got overwhelmed by all the projects I had on the go. My darling (and very sensible) fiance suggested I actually finish a few, before I started any more.


You mean you can do that?

I tried it and it did help. So now I am trialling doing only 3 sewing projects, 3 craft projects and whatever mending needs doing at a time. As you can see, I’m really good at sticking to 3 projects at a time.

Current sewing projects

Cut out but not working on at the moment:

Current art and/or craft projects

Mending and alterations

Boring boring boring.

But if I write them out, then cross them off as done, I should at least feel accomplishedly bored, right?

Oh, wait. I had a brainwave! As a reward, I can have a frappe  for every bit of mending I do.  Right, see if bribing myself works…

Stuff I’ve finished. Left here to remind me how much I actually have done.

    I had forgotten about the Secret Present for Auntie Josie, until I just saw it mentioned here. It is a work in progress, and you have lots of other things on the go, but it will happen when the planets are in the right angles.

    It is a good idea having lists of things you are working on. In my case it would be another sheet of paper to be added to the overwhelming pile.

      Aha! I hadn’t forgotten! Work on it slowed for a while when my shoulder was hurt but should be full-steam ahead soon 🙂

      I have all this in my visual diary as well. I started it when the pile of papers recording ideas etc got so big it defeated the purpose. Good luck coping with your overwhelming paper pile. Maybe you can give yourself a frappe as a treat when done. It is working for me – check out my list of mending done. Wow!
