I tend to go a little adrift in these in-between seasons. I'm glad there is more daylight as February ends, but my body clock is not synced right. Today, we may have turned a corner, and we were richly rewarded for doing so.
We hit the trail about 30-45 minutes earlier than we had on any day in the past week. Shortly after we crossed the little stream in our Long Island Greenbelt paradise, we saw deer. To the left, to the right, and in front of us. Ten of them.
How do you keep yourself motivated? Do you set daily goals? Do you break a project down into smaller pieces?
One thing that is slowing me down is quilting clutter. Being a mostly scrap quilter at this stage of my life I find that every project seems to:
a. Cause an explosion of fat quarters
b. Untidy all the drawers where I had everything nicely folded
I know I need a better storage system, but I simply can't afford to invest in new storage units. I use a mishmosh of old dressers and plastic bins at present. My quilting room is never going to garner a pinterest following.
So, i'm open to suggestions. How do you tame the chaos? Does it sometimes cause you to feel overwhelmed? Am I the only one with these issues?
