Today is the first day of our Spring Break.
Tessa is headed to Utah to spend the week with her siblings and Jim and I are staying home. This week we will practice being empty nesters.
The whole idea of being an empty nester stresses me out. I’m not ready. I’m not old enough!
If there are any empty nesters out there reading this, please, tell me it’s going to be o.k.!
I have declared this week (actually four days) of being an empty nester as Project Week.
I was inspired by my niece in law Michelle who recently confessed on her blog that she was awarded the “Queen of the Unfinished Projects” by her quilting group for being the member with the most unfinished projects. Michelle counted more than 40 unfinished projects at her house. She has even started a new blog to chronicle her journey to completing all her projects.
Michelle got to me thinking, how many unfinished projects did I have piled up in the bonus room, lurking in closets, on the floor of my bedroom? I started counting. I think I may be able to give Michelle a run for her money for that award!
There was the flower quilt I shared a few weeks ago still waiting for its binding and the other quilt top that is almost done, it just needs a little applique work. Then there was the pile of fabric waiting to be made into reusable bags for my etsy shop and the fabric I bought a year ago to make Cali an apron. Do I need to count the piles of fabric for the three other quilts I bought?? O.k. so you get the idea, I have a few unfinished projects around.
Then there are the unfinished scrapbooking projects, we are not even going to go there. Not sure I can count that high.
In the corner of my bedroom is the bag with the unfinished afghan, piles of unread books and the chandelier I’ve been wanting to hang in Tessa’s room for a year now.
You get the idea.
So this week is Project Week. First on the list are some sewing projects including that quilt that needs to be bound and the reusable bags. I’ll keep you posted on how I do. Check out Facebook for updates!
There will also be a few new blog posts with some yummy new recipes too this week so no worries!
How many unfinished projects do you have lurking at your house? How about choosing one and joining me for Project Week. Let me know which project you choose!
