A Stitch in Time: 2011 Finishes Index

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. –Henry Ford

In 2010 I kept a running tally of all of the projects that I finished throughout the year. I loved having a place to catalogue all of the things I finished in one year's time and found a huge amount of satisfaction in looking over the list as it grew, knowing that in all of my sewing madness, I was actually getting a few things done. It worked so well for me that I'm going to continue to keep track of my finishes again this year in the same way that I did last year. As the year progresses, I'll update this new index to include a link to each sewing or quilting project that I finish.

If you'd like to do something similar, click here for instructions on how to use my 2011 Finishes sidebar button to link directly to your own index.

That's a great idea, Elizabeth. I was wishing I had something like that when I thought briefly about doing a year in review. The thought of poring through my old posts was overwhelming.

Good luck with your 2011 finishes!

I did this (sort of /kind of ) last year with my sidebar list. I like this idea too.

I had a look at your 2010 list. Good grief - how much sewing did you get done last year! I think seeing it all in one spot puts it all in perspective.

I'll be watching this space with interest and cheering you on with whatever you decide to do.
