So many projects . .

So I feel like so far this new year is going great in the quilting arena.  I have been doing a lot of behind the scenes work for an upcoming project that I am super excited about.  I finished up my 2 twisters, guest posted, and made both of my bee blocks including this new one yesterday.   

So why is my list of things to do so long?????  I will tell you why, because for every one project I complete I think of 2 more to add.  Oh well, it wouldn't be fun if I didn't feel like I had a million projects I was trying to juggle :)  Now just to keep track of them all.  I find I can't sleep when I have to many projects bouncing around in my brain . . . Thank heavens for the WIP Wednesday, where I can write it all down and make some priorities for the week :)

Pin It!


  1. Good luck with all your projects. You sound like you are going to be busy for a long time.

  2. Love your bee block!

  3. You know it sounds like you are on top of it! Just having them all written and in one place is a great start!!

  4. you look very busy!

  5. Love that Bee block. That's my kind of thing!

  6. That is a long list! Your bee block is super interesting! :)

  7. I keep an ever growing LONG list at the very bottom of my blog. I go there to see what I want to work on next, and keep it updated a few times a month. It helps me keep track to make sure I don't lose any UFO's as well.

  8. What a great list that is broken down in stages and then prioritized. I need to make a list like that. Sewing projects keep me awake at night too as does the list of new techniques and layouts that I would love to try but can't find time for.
    Thanks for sharing!

  9. LOVE that block! WoW! Good luck with all those projects!!

  10. Wow. I got tired just reading that list!! Way to go! I can't wait to see all of these projects come to life!

  11. Gorgeous block Melissa! I want to do more improv this year - inspiring :)

  12. That IS along list! Great improv block!

  13. That bee block is so cool! Love the colors and the improv piecing. Good luck with your list, you've got a lot of projects there! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )
