I do not work well under pressure and I do not thrive on short time schedules,
but sure, I get things done.
I thrive best with my daily threads, having time to spend time writing, reading and thinking as well - having time for the small interruptions of daily life and time to smell the flowers doing nothing.
I have done progress with the Starboat quilt though, the big blocks.
4 blocks are completely done
4 blocks lacks only a little, like redoing a seam on one, doing the circular seam on 2 and gluing and the circular seam on one.
For the last 4, the middle circles are done.
I wish I had the backbone of doing these blocks as a daily thread since the class, 4 weeks ago.
4 weeks seemed like forever - yeah, right.......
I am adjusting my goal for the good of myself.
If I can join half the top tomorrow I will be happy enough - every stitch more than that is pure bonus :-)
I will not get told off or get whacked with a wet noodle - it is a get-together after the class in May, to show our quilts or quilt tops.
I agree- it is hard to work and be happy under pressure..I hope you do ok with this top!ReplyDelete
Do what you can...and be kind to yourself. It'll work out!
I hear you! Working to a deadline just shuts me down. Not only do I then miss the deadline I feel overwhelmed. Much better to set small goals and see every stitch after that as bonusReplyDelete
