Show organization...

Every two years my guild has a show. You would think with two years to get ready I would have lots to enter. At this point I would say "think again!"
I felt a bit panic-y when I looked at my sewing room and the projects. Many are almost done...most are halfway there...and a few that I really like still look more like piles of scraps than quilts.

So today I am stepping away from the cutting board, pushing back from the sewing machine, tucking away the quilt magazines and focusing on bringing some order to my projects. Even if it is only to make a list of what I want to have finished and in the October Show...at least I would have a plan!

On the good news front the postcards for out show arrived this past week. We used the quilt that won best use of color for the card. It was the fist time I used postcardprinting.com so I was a bit nervous but now I am really happy with the results!

We have a show in September and I still don't know what I am going to enter - I need to get my act together soon. Good luck with your show. The postcards look great!!

Would you mind stopping by when you're done. My UFOs need a bit of organizing too. I'll even make brownies . . . how's that for incentive! LOL

Deadlines usually help but if they are so far away as to seem dreamlike, they disappear from the mind! Hope you get your organization in your sewing room fit enough to mess it all up again:) The postcards look beautiful!

If your show is not until October you have plenty of time. Our show is in April and I'm in the same boat!

Love the painted block.

We are getting ready for our Tea! In the process of finishing my project too.

That Dobby is a scamp! Glad he made it down safely. That adventure should keep him homebound for a while.

Wahoo! Thanks for the reminder that I need to get some quilts ready for the show. Better get my UFO list out and get serious! The postcards are great! I got mine in the mail.
