Ideas...

I have so many pattern ideas and quilts planned in my head.

I would love it if just a FEW of them could become reality!!

Do you all do that? Think quilts (or paintings, or knitting, or...) all of the time but most of them never make it to the cutting table, much less the sewing machine?

And that is my thought for the day. Seth SHOULD be here tomorrow. He'd better get that blog handed in to me by NOON!! Seth...you listening???

Ditto here Tonya. I have so many ideas that I actually started writing them down. I have a huge list and hopefully someday I will have time to start making them and marking them off on by one.

Angie said...

I have that with writing. So many chapters in my head that never make it out. . .

My painting ideas get scribbled in a sketchbook.. and its not long before I paint them.. I paint a lot! :lol:

Put your 'wish list' on slips of paper and put in a jar - pull a slip a month and that is your 'to-do' for the month. You will be so happy some of those idea projects came to fruition.

Yup, right there with ya! I get about 100 different ideas on quilts, home projects, fragments of poems or just things I want to say to people daily! I wish I had a recorder to just keep track of them all. haha
I do like Sharon's idea of the wish jar.

Melissa said...

I do. And I keep telling myself that I need to keep a journal. Maybe on the table by the couch, with some colored pencils so I could work on it in the evening when I watch TV with hubby.

I like Sharon's idea of the jar with little notes and pull one out each month. At least you would have the ideas all in one place.

There are so many things I start and really enjoy making, but I don't finish them until quite some time later. Sometimes I never finish them. Well I can't say never cause there are still there and I may still do them!

I like to read about projects and patterns and blog tutorials. I enjoy the process in my head.

Great thought of the day Tonya!

Tonya - What I used to do (pre Mom with Alzheimer's) was take out the fabrics I wanted to use in a certain project and stack them on the sewing table. That's the current project, which inspired me to get to work on it. Of course, now I'm lucky if I even get IN the sewing room, let alone set down... Although I finally did get a memory quilt quilted for a friend, and my machine hung up on the last pass! So now I have to wait for a repairman,'cause when I turn it on it sounds like a kitchen full of crockery rollin' down a rocky road! Hugs

I've tried the "put the fabrics and pattern (or sketch) in a zippy bag" method, but unfortunately, the zippy bags just pile up and then get hidden away! I think Sharon's idea is the best - I think I need to try that!

Seems like we all have that problem. I've been using graft paper to create quilt patterns and ideas that roll around in my head. Sometimes at night, I have to get up and sketch them out or I can't sleep. Countless things in my mind, so little time!

Yes Tonya it's gets very busy in my head sometimes so I know how you feel. I need a wife to do my chores and a secretary to do all my instructions..LOL!
