organizing my WIPs

Publié le par Romy in Austria

Today I tried to count my WIPs. I´m now up to 20 WIPs (if I found all of them :-).

I really have to organize my WIPs. I have to find a strategy to not  become too overwhelmed with all my stitchings.

First I put all my projects for exchanges and gifts in a special bag. I usually don´t like to stitch for datelines, so I always try to finish my stitching for exchanges far before the mailing date.

I have to finish project for the Freebie Exchange. I finished the stitching, but I have to do the finishing which will take some time. The mailing date is September 19th, so I think it will be no problem to finish it in the next two weeks.

Then I have to start my stitching for the Redwork Exchange on the Stitching Blogger Exchange BB. Mailing date is November 1th, so I have some time. I think I know what I´ll stitch and how I´ll so the finishing.

And I have to stitch my Birthday gift for my Birthday Buddy for December. I´m working on it right now, so it should be finished right in time.

Now it looks like it will be feasible. The only thing, I have to try to start no new projects. So my Biedermeier Sampler has to wait till next  year.

I want to finish Merry Cox Birds&Berries for myself. I´m close to finish the stitching, so this will be my focus project. And maybe I will start the House Huswif challenge from the UK TSG. It´s such a fun project. Several designers design a seasonal Huswif. Only the pattern, without instructions for stitches and no color code. So the huswif will become an unique piece for all participants.

And when I looke for my WIPs, I found the Sandy Orton English Bandsampler. I put only a few stitches in it. I totally forgot about it. I kitted it up with Vikki Clayton silks. I loved this sampler the first time I saw it.

And here my very, very few progress!!

So my strategy,

-I´ll stitch on my exchanges -

- I´ll finish B&B -

- I´ll stitch on the English Bandsampler -

- and maybe start the House Huswif -

Wow, Romy I thought I had a lot of wips but you win me, lol
Your option sound great . I Žm involved in two RR and exchanges , so I do this first and the rest time continue my progress on the rest of the wips, preferibly two on hands.

The thought of counting all my WIPs is too frightful to think about. I'm happy to read that you've started by birthday gift. :) LOL
