Gathering my thoughts and projects

I feel like I have been neglecting my blog recently.  I haven't posted as many updates as I would like to and feel a bit lost as to where I am with all my WIPs and all those new projects that I want to start.  Sometimes I feel over whelmed with all the projects I want to stitch that I kind of come to a stand still and don't actually stitch anything.  Does any one else ever feel like that?

I am thinking that I will set up a couple of new pages on the blog one for WIPs with photos of the piece as it will look when finished and the most up to date WIP picture.  Then another page for future projects which I will try and prioritise.

As I type this I realise some people may think this is all a bit too much and that you should just enjoy your sewing projects and do what takes your fancy.  Unfortunately I have a bit of OCD when it comes to things like this and I like to know things are organised.

I am currently stitching on two projects that are being released in parts the first is the Learning Sampler from Northern Expressions Needleworks and also the Lizzie Kate Mystery Christmas SAL.  I really want to keep up with the parts of these as they are released so these will be my two main projects.  I am also committed to stitching two more model stitches in the near future so when I have the materials from those I will be making them a priority as well.  I would then like to concentrate on some of my current WIPs.  I also need to go through all my WIPs and decide which are UFOs and if I will ever actual finish them or if the fabric could be put to a better use on a different project.

I hope you will enjoy seeing my updates and I hope to make them more regular again.

Keep stitching and smiling

I know exactly where you are coming from. I have done a page for my WIP's and since doing so, most of my projects have been worked on a little bit :) Good Luck in sorting it all out xxx

Ahhh, I get how you feel :) When I have lots that I want to stitch I often find it impossible to make a decision and end up spending more time thinking about stitching than actually stitching ^^;

I think setting up some extra pages is a good idea. I like to be organized too ^^

I know exactly what you mean. Of course the problem could be eased somewhat if my hubby would just let me retire and stitch to my heart's content each day :)

Oh, I know exactly how you feel. Due to the situation with my elderly parents I am so behind on looking after my blog and writing blog posts, etc. It is quite depressing really as I love to blog. Good luck with your organisation. It is a great idea!
hugs, Kaye
