I posted my first Finish Along list in April 2015 when it was still a “big thing” and hosted on blogland. But even though it switched to @finishalong on Instagram and appears to have died out, I never looked back. I still post my WIP list here on the blog and in a short version on IG. For me it is a very necessary and thus awesome tool – to keep track, to stay motivated… to hopefully, finally reduce the – for me overwhelming – number of WIPs…
What I accomplished last quarter
I had no finishes last quarter but I made good progress on two projects: Spikes and Scrappy Pixel. You can read more about it in the December report. Back in October I also made progress on an on-hold project, that is now a finished quilt top: Throwing Stars. It is now back on the WIP list …
All my current projects
I also have a few other projects that are to be sewn – either because they are promised or because I would like to. Some would fall into this quarter, but they are not started yet. The gift for my advent calendar swap partner, a Sew Together Bag – a toiletry bag, and maybe a new wallet for myself for QuiltCon? Or maybe finally the Hovea coat? Also I have a quilt class at said event, so I will need to start a new quilt. Uppps! And I have the feeling there will be a new baby quilt for family in the future ;)
Not looking so good for my goal to reduce WIPs but I am happy with my sewing and the projects. That has to count for something! Also, inspired by the WipsBGone tracking in Oct/Nov, I am now tracking “daily” sewing on a paper tracking sheet and I hope this will motivate me to be more consistent. We all know we can’t finish something if we are not working on it ;)
I hope that whatever your goal was, you reached it and are happy with your sewing. All the best for the next quarter.
