That pile of UFO's

In one of the groups that I am in on facebook we were asked if we have a pile of UFO's Unfinished Objects :)


That got me thinking and I took a tour around my studio to see what my current situation is. I try very hard to focus as I really don't like living with piles of fabric out in the open. My home studio is an open space in the house so I try to keep things organized. Projects in boxes, not huge over flowing piles.


I keep saying that I have a headache, of the good kind, where my head is bursting with so many ideas amd each time I get an idea I fill a small box with the releveant pieces for that project. Looking around my studio I have 4 projects on the go besides for learning a new program on my site to create courses. Another pastel rag quilt, t shirt scraps for a tunic for a new tutorial that I can"see" in my head. A pastel slow stitching "boro" type of project and scrap crumb pieces in preparation for students to create pillows.


The rag quilt is one that I have been working on for a while, I have 4 others like it which we use regularly. This will be the 5th. They are all in tranquil pastel shades which I find soothing to live with at the end of a busy colorful day.

I think I will have to curtail my pinterest viewing. Every time I get online, the creative sparks start flying. This time, by chance I saw some crocheted tunics and they sent me in the direction of creating something with my t shirt and tie dye scraps which I have a lot of. I sketched what I saw in my head in my notebook and the tunic is on the production line.

I am working on that tranquil, pastel shaded slow stitching piece. I thought that I needed to take it easy for a while after working on the Wave sunset but my brain is telling me otherwise.


And of course I routinely prepare fabrics for students. This week they will be creating crumb pillows in summer colors.
