Happy New Year everyone!!!
I know that today, some of you will be sewing … others will be busy doing other things … at any rate, sewing will likely be in your plans in the next couple of days!
Have you joined in the PHD in 2020? You can go to THIS POST for details and to add your link … you have until Jan. 14 to join!
The first part in tackling your UFOs to acheive your PHD in 2020 is making your list. Many of you have already done that!
Now, let’s look at analysising how you can best tackle your UFOs.
The next part is to take out the first project you are going to work on. Ask yourself, “Why did this become a UFO?” If you can honestly answer that question, you are on the way to avoiding the same pitfall and letting that project languish as a UFO for more time. If you can’t answer that question, here’s a few hints as to why it happened:
- did you get bored with the project?
- is it too repetative?
- did too many squirrels (other projects that took priority) interfer?
- is there a technique you dislike doing? or is too hard to do?
- did you get too busy to even make it?
The next question to ask is, “Is there something that will make the finishing of this project easier?” A few solutions that I have used are:
- treat it as a leader & ender … do small parts while working on another project
- work on it for a limited time (set a timer if you need to) each time you have the opportunity to sew
You’ve already analyed the potential problems with your project … now, to quote Nike, “Just Do It.” Now Go and SEW …
The UFO I’m going to work on …
Summer Solstice. I have chosen this project because I think that it has the most road-blocks for me and I’d like to get ‘er done!
As I Analysed it … the answer to “Why did this become a UFO?” was hard to answer. I think part of it is that it is a paper-pieced pattern and I can’t do Leaders and Enders while working on it.
As to “What can make it easier?” I’ve decided that I will spend at least 15 minutes a day working on this project.
Link up and show us the project that you are working on! Remember, you can link to an Instagram post, Pinterest post or a blog post … it’s totally up to you!
