What I Resolved and What I Accomplished

In mid-2019, I resolved to finish half of the projects I could reach by the summer of 2020. Well, 2020 wasn’t exactly the year to stick to your schedule, was it? I did accomplish some things, even if my sewing room doesn’t reflect it. Yes, there are piles all over the place. However, the two big plastic bags pictured at the right of the photo and another bin not shown had been hiding in other rooms. I finished a sufficient number of projects to bring those other fabric collections into the sewing room.

My shelves are crammed with plastic project bags. However, there are fewer bags than before and some of them are new.

My cutting table has a wall of fabric running down the middle. However, there is more room for me to work. This is one of the best results of my challenge, as I am no longer quite so worried about sucking up random bits of fabric into my piecing or machine quilting (yes, that has happened before).

Another good result of the challenge is that I have used much of my stash, and many of those quilts will be donation quilts, like this one designed around a single panel that mysteriously appeared in a project bag. I’m not sure how, when, or why I acquired it, but I am certain some child somewhere will adore it.

Luck and wisdom!

    Hurray! Good for you!
    I am in such a mood to declutter — the current problem is finding somewhere open that will take my stuff! But I love vicariously decluttering through other people’s achievements as well. There is something very satisfying about reading a post like this. 🙂

      Thanks! Oddly enough, knowing I’m not alone in having to find homes for my treasures helps me to let them go – if, as you noted, I can find a place ready and willing to take them!
