Today we “Spring Forward” and start Daylight Savings Time. There are simply not enough hours in a regular day, and today we have one hour less! What projects are you thinking about today? Starting a new quilt? A skirt? A yarn project? Embroidery?
Or perhaps you are thinking about finishing up some of your UFOs (unfinished objects), WISPs (works in slow progress), PIPs (projects in process), PIGS (projects in grocery sacks), AFUFOs (almost finished UFOs), or “the pile” (as husbands tend to call our projects…)? Believe me, all those projects you see in the photo above were once a UFO/WISP/PIP/PIG/AFUFO/part of “the pile” (note – some of them still are…).
Now, I know you have some of these lying around! We all do. It’s a natural thing to get bored, distracted, or just plain stuck on a project. Sometimes we need a little motivation to get us moving and today is a great day to forge ahead.
Today, let’s think about “Spring Forward” as a reminder to jump on those projects that are holding us back and making us feel guilty. It feels wonderful to finish a project – what will you finish up today?
