Last week I managed (finally!) to write out my list for the month of February. Already I am concerned about getting everything on it finished. It isn't because it is unusually long or difficult; it's because I find myself distracted.
First I'll just post the list. Then I'll explain what's going on with each item, and by doing that, I may figure out what the difficulties are. If I can do that, I may be able to alleviate my concerns.
- Special Project
- Put away Christmas decorations - Done!!!
- Make quilt binding
- Sew on quilt binding
- Work on Farmer's Wife
- Start Kim Diehl project
Okay, already I see one issue. These are only the sewing projects, and my painting has also been taking time. Fortunately, I've gotten to a point where I can slow down on my current project so that should no longer be a problem.
The first one - well, I'm dragging my feet.
The second on the list - well, that's finally done.
Third and fourth - haven't even started. Since they don't take too much time, the problem is clearly just getting on with it. It's really an easy task so I think it will be finished this month.
Number five? Hoo-boy. Now there's a huge project that will take more than one month to complete. And if that weren't enough, it's difficult. More than likely that's why so far I have merely moved it from one place to another. However, it must also receive some attention even if it's only cutting the set-in triangles I need (far too many of them if you ask me!).
The sixth task has been cut out, and by doing that I realize that it will take several days of careful sewing. Many, many tiny pieces that because they are so small will need special attention during stitching. However, since this is a new project, I need to take care of numbers 1, 3, and 4 first before I go any farther on this.
Okay, I think I get it. I'm really, really good at procrastination, but I'm also pretty good at self-discipline.
