How Many?

Lately it feels like I don't have much to do when it comes to sewing. However, that is not true. It's more like, the amount of time I get to sew does not correspond with the amount of time a project would take. I don't want to get started into something that I know I might not even be able to get a block finished, or a full row done by the time one of the kids wakes up. I haven't even wanted to cut any fabric knowing I will not be able to sew it for days. Which got me thinking; Exactly how many projects do I have unfinished? I started making a list in my head while driving home from the grocery store.
Let's see...
I have: 3 quilts that I have started hand quilting. Two of them I started when I still had my job with the airline, and have since sat unfinished. I'm thinking I might just machine quilt them and practice my horrible skills.
4 quilt tops finished, one of which has been resting on the back of my computer chair for almost a year now.
7 quilts that I have started sewing. 1 is a block of the month quilt, so it shouldn't really count.
4 quilts that have been cut, or at least partially cut and then tucked away for me to forget about. I recently found these projects, and two of them have been moved to the 'sewing' section. I think I started cutting them 8 or 9 years ago(??)
1 blanket made purely from minky that needs a back, with two more to do start.
1 pair of pajamas; that, again, was cut out several years ago and forgotten.
1 baby bunting (I think that is what it's called, the pajamas with no legs and looks kinda like a sleeping bag)
And... I have another 4 quilts that I need to get started on. (3 are commissioned quilts, so I really need to get started)
Lastly, several small projects, in which I hope to have done by Mother's Day.

I know I'm not the only one who does this; so.. I'm wondering, how many is on your list?

  1. Well, let's just say the jammie pants that are cut but not sewn, will no longer fit DD as she has since traveled through puberty and been on the other side a couple years...LOL! I have faith that we all will get the important projects done. Her life didn't end because she didn't have those jammies! Take a deep breath, dive in and Good Luck!
