What fun! I have work in progress that I can report. I've been on such a mission to finish projects. It was bothering me that I have been signing up for bees and swaps and then receiving my blocks and...putting them in the cabinet. As I promised myself at the beginning of this year, I want to bring these projects to completion. The other good news is, as I finish my work , I am motivated to post on the old group sites. It is so rewarding to see what other swap members have done and also to see the response to my work.
Also, I have learned that I have to carefully consider the bees and swaps that I am going to join. I want to be happy with what I receive and I want to know that, if I join a swap or bee, that I will utilize the blocks I receive. I'm getting better at understanding just how much of a time commitment I am making when signing up. I have noticed that it's difficult to do my own original work when I have so many deadline commitments. That has probably been the single most important consideration I have applied in my decision making - I want to have more time to be creative.
Now that I have said all that, here are two of my older projects that are going to be completed:
I expect I'll get these tops done rather quickly. I'm kicking myself now wondering why I took so long to complete these two projects - sometimes I overthink the projects so much that I lose the momentum of early completion.
It seems like there is a critical time in a project when either completion or avoidance strikes. Have you noticed that in your quilting?
Meanwhile, I can report that Boo is recovering from his gastro-intestinal distress after going to the vet and getting rehydrated and pumped full of meds. Apparently, he has a very tempremental stomach when it comes to processing grass and other strange items that he finds in the pasture grass of my backyard. I am told that he must be "supervised" in the yard to avoid this in the future. I am clearly on a learning curve of doodle mama behavior!
Aaaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household.
