It's so easy for me to get discouraged and tell myself I don't have enough time to complete the projects I want to. I've tried to be better about getting off the computer and just going for it rather than over-thinking it and eventually convincing myself it's not possible. So I'm okay with cutting up all my Madrona Road without a set plan. I've also started breaking down projects into manageable pieces so they don't seem so overwhelming. I have 10 squares of each fabric. My mini goal is to sew the HSTs for at least one fabric every day. There are 7 fabrics, so my 140 HSTs will be done in a week. (Possibly sooner if I get really motivated or have extra time.)
I had to do the same thing with my converging corners baby quilt. I set a timeline and knew how many blocks I had to complete each week in order to have them done in time to quilt and bind it. It took 2 months from start to finish but was actually finished a few days before the baby shower. One of my sewing goals for 2013 is to complete more projects than I did in 2012. . .and I was pleasantly surprised with my 2012 accomplishments.
