Unfinished Projects

Y’all. Y’all. I’m really bad at unfinished projects.

My friend Anna Plantyn had a fantastic idea for keeping on task for finishing up the projects (and I’ll blog about this, too). From her note:

Over the years I have accrued a number of unfinished projects. One of my goals for 2018 is to clear out all of my unfinished project, one way or another. To date I have 30 unfinished projects. At least that is what I have found so far. I am pretty sure there are a couple more hiding out in the house somewhere. In order to keep track of them and in a way, hold myself accountable for finishing them I’m going post them here and update as they go away.

So, here we go. I may have fewer than 30 projects, but I need to get these done and out of the way. Please help me stay accountable. If I tell you that I need help with it, please help me get it taken care of (if this means that I’m being kidnapped and coming over to your house, then this is what it means). Once they’ve been completed, I’ll bold it and mark that it’s finished.
  1. Nobelese Largesse Secret Project
  2. Mar’s Quilt block
  3. Lined Skjoldehamn hood
  4. Cutting out several Byzantine bone box blanks in preparation for turning into Byzantine box icons
  5. Sewing up Byzantine boy garb (PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS!)
  6. Thaddeus’ Achievement of Arms
  7. Making more casual Byzantine clothing (PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS!)
  8. Heraldic banner for my significant other.

I have enough projects to keep me going for the next eight months, though some will need to be done sooner (numbers 1 and 2) than the others (it would be nice to get 3, 7, and 8 done soon, as well).

I’ll be blogging about completing each project as I get to them.  It is my hope that this keeps me motivated to get those UFOs off my plate.

    How can I help you with 8? Would drawing on canvas and mailing it to you help?
