It's the 15th so it's time to check in day for our Big Dream projects!
Four people reported on their Big Dream projects last month. I never expected a lot of participants. My main objective in setting a regular schedule for posting is to keep myself focused and to encourage you get the nerve and a plan to start that project that you have been dreaming of. Even if all you are doing at this point is thinking about it, you are making progress! So if you are thinking about a project leave a comment and tell us what it is. Is it a quilt project? Are you wanting to start teaching? Write a book? Start a blog?
If what’s stopping you is a feeling of being overwhelmed by the size of it, these articles might help. The advice applies to any large project from cleaning the house, writing a book, making a quilt….whatever.
The mosaic wall continues!
I didn’t think I had made much progress until I compared the photo to last month.
I made more progress than I thought! The center of the wall is now covered so I can start grouting the section under the window. I think once that’s done I can call myself half done. It also means that I’ll finally be out of the way of the end of the longarm. You can’t imagine the bruises that I’ve gotten banging into the handles and the corners of the table.
I finished the most recent section last night. Chris and I went to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons last week so this is my tribute block with black bear footprints on a “yellow stone” background. I have to tell you about the meaning of the background because Chris didn’t get it.
On my symmetry project I had decided to postpone that one for a while. I just couldn’t concentrate on a big quilting project and the wall and one more project at the same time. But I received a request from Paula Nadelstern to make a small symmetry quilt for her new book. I was going to decline but slept on it for a few days and got inspiration! I’ll likely start working out my idea this week. it only has to be 36” square so I think I can accomplish it.
I hope you are working on your Big Dream project or at least planning it. Link up below or add a comment about your own project.
