Winter is my time to think through my many projects. This time round, I’m trying to plan out what really needs to get done and to give myself some deadlines so the projects actually get done!
As a retired person, I have found that giving myself the “job” of quilting has really helped me move projects from the hobby stage to the finished and out of the house stage. It is a great job, by the way. And I feel productive ~ I was teaching half day kindergarten when I retired and now I try to “work” at quilting half a day for at least five days a week. This includes my “must do” projects, my UFO projects and my teaching preparation projects. I then have my hobby projects ~ the #2 and #3 items on the above chart ~ that eventually move to “must do” projects ~ #1 column items. My hobby projects do have to share time with volunteering at the Orma J. Smith Natural Science Museum, birding, Women’s Circle, charity quilts, reading, blogging, gardening, and housework, etc.
Better get to work!
