As I was sifting through a box this week, I happened upon an old Unfinished Object list. While I was happy to note that I had completed at least one project on the list in the past year, I still had several more to finish and had even added new projects over the past year. So I sat down to make a revised list.
Here’s what I ended up with:
- X-scrap quilt
- Pink and green paper-piecing quilt
- Tiny pineapples quilt
- 4-patch squares scrap quilt
- Cabin Quilt
- Striped squares scrap quilt
- Lemon Pepper quilt (Just needs to be quilted.)
Other Craft Projects
- Knitted socks
- Cross-stitch project
I suppose my list is not as lengthy as other’s lists, but it is still a bit daunting.
Here’s a peek at each of them:
Despite the urge to start another new something, I chose to work on three of these projects this week. I worked on the pink and green paper piecing quilt, which will probably end up hanging on a wall in our home. Or it may be a lap quilt. I haven’t decided yet what we’ll do with it. I also worked on the 4-patch scrap quilt. I intended to continue working on the pink and green paper piecing when I wandered into the office/sewing room later in the week. However, I arrived just as my husband, who often works from home, started listening to an audiobook. Normally, I’m not a fan of action books (in this case, Lee Child’s The Sentinel), but I somehow got hooked in the first few minutes. Since I was unable to hear it playing over the sound of the sewing machine, I chose to work on my cross-stitch project. Abandoning all of my other work, I arrived in the sewing room/office the next day to continue listening and cross-stitching. This could quickly become a dangerous habit!
What does your Unfinished Object list look like?
