This weekend, I am going to a quilt retreat at Sturbridge Quilting and Sewing Center in Massachusetts. This shop is right I-84 and the Massachusetts Turnpike meet, so if you are driving through New England, stop and check this shop out!
It takes a lot of careful planning to go on a quilt retreat. So, so many decisions:
- How many projects should I take?
- Should I be disciplined and only bring projects that I've already started?
- Wouldn't it be more fun to start a brand new project?
- Wouldn't it be even more fun to buy new projects just to make at this retreat?
In the spirit of "I'm finishing up all of my UFOs this year," I want to be disciplined and not start any new projects. I dragged out the bin that holds most of my in-process quilts:
And then I got very, very depressed just considering the number of unfinished projects in this bin and not even considering the other UFOs that are taking up space in my sewing room. Oh, the humanity!
The only thing that will cheer me up is buying new fabric to make new projects.
Decision -- made!
