Power of 10

My mom got this theory in one of her quilting newsletters. The theory is that when you work on a project you tend to get bored after awhile and then move on to the next project without ever finishing the first one. (I tend to be a little more neurotic and work on a project until I'm done, but it sometimes takes the fun out of it.) The recommendation is that you pick ten projects and then work on a project for no more than three hours and then move on the to the next one. You keep rotating through the ten projects until you complete them and move new ones into their place. This way you finish things without getting bored.

So I'm going to try it. I'll keep a list of what I'm working on.

#1 Anais top (knit)
#2. Turning 20 Quilt with Amy Butler fabrics

#3. Suede Baby Booties (knit)

#4. "D" is for Dog (cross stitch)

#5. Quick to Knit Plymouth Toddler Jacket

#6. Beginner Lace Wrap (knit)

#7. "Hope and Flowers" cross stitch

#8. John's BYU quilt

#9. Margarite's Quilt

#10. Hemstitched Crochet Edge baby blankets (Only two more left!)

Ambitious. I take pride in finishing approximately 75% of one project per year.

Don't worry, I'm sure my story will change when I have three kids. The fact that you still have projects is an accomplishment.
