at what's on the pinning table tonight...and look carefully....see all the pins? Woo hoo!!!!
As you can see by my sidebar, I was fortunate enough to make it into a motivational group effort....One Project A Month. Seriously, now how hard is it to complete one project a month? (Well, if we consider that this one's been under construction for about 3 months now, I guess it's safe to say that at times I need all the help I can get). Anyway, this is going to be my finished project for January -- I swear! And I hope to gain a lot of inspiration and enjoy the camradarie of the other bloggers participating in this endeavor. Thanks so much to Peg and Kris for setting it up.
With this new motivation after I cleaned up after dinner I went upstairs, put on my jammies and my Uggs, packed all of my materials in a tote bag, folded up the pinning table and schlepped it all downstairs to the family room where I could park it in front of the tv and watch American Idol with the hubs while I pinned. I told him I thought the reason I was avoiding it was because it's such a long process and it would be so boring to do it in my workroom. Well, that definitely did the trick. It took all of 2 hours to sandwich and pin, and it's done.
The fun part was I got to use the wonky little safety pin tool the hubs put in my Christmas stocking, and amazingly, it worked really well and I love it.
So now we have conquered the Beach House sandwich and pin procrastination madness and will now most likely focus on Beach House quilt freemotion procrastination for the rest of the week.
Well, after finishing the BeachHouse quilt, I'll be whipping out a little table quilt for Valentine's Day, that is if I can fit it in with the Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend Challenge. I'd also like to make some little yoyo heart pins, and since I did a Valentime themed tutorial on the blog last year, maybe I'll make that an annual project and get back in tutorial mode with the yoyo heart pins.
If only there were as many hours in the day as I have good intentions.
