After the Weekend


I went out for a few short errands over the weekend. I really didn't want DH driving very much and tried to just keep him at home to get plenty of rest. I bought some more threads and I picked up some things for DH to tinker with over the weekend so he wouldn't get bored.

All in all, it was a just a relaxing stay at home weekend. I managed to get some more done on Little House Neighborhood. I probably could have gotten more done but I had to take time out for taking out a entire row that was off a stitch!

I found "And A Forest Grew" in the bottom of a basket (unfinished of course) so that has been re-added to my WIP list. All these big pieces on my WIP list make me want to start some quick smaller pieces so I won't begin to feel so hopeless about finishing anything!

I worked on organizing my charts. Finally! I used 4 square bins with lids (big enough to store large quilt squares in). One bin holds holiday charts, magazines and small leaflets or books, Bin 2 holds charts I bought and still like but really don't want to stitch on anytime soon. Bin 3 holds charts I want to work on kitting up. Bin 4 holds the ones already kitted up. This system will make finding what I want a lot easier!

Your progress looks wonderful.

When it comes to large projects just keep in mind that every little bit adds to getting it finished. Whenever I am working on one of my large pieces I tell myself I do not need to be in a hurry, it will be done when it is done. Besides, I hate paying for getting them framed so the longer it takes, the longer I am putting off paying to have it framed and yes, I must have (some of) them framed as soon as I finish them. I do work on it a little each day though instead of once a week.
