Quilt ADD in therapy

Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. Instagram: lyncc_quilts

Organized Chaos

I am a complex person who thrives creatively and produces most effectively when I can shift among several quilt projects at a time.
My tastes are widely eclectic, but tend toward intricate and time-heavy works that swamp you in boredom if you try to work only on one at a time until a finish.

This page is my personal organization page. It provides a map that lets me work on current projects, keep UFOs in mind, and pull in the NETY sets that I have on a regular basis. With this system, I am not bogged down with boredom, nor frozen with an overwhelming goal (to finish all those kits I collected over the decades my children were growing, but also enjoy current interests).

Some people would be frozen by these lists. I do not use them as TO-DO lists that I have to check off in a given period of time, so there's no stress to me. They are simply organizers, from which I draw a UFO list each year to check off from, and look for guidance to each time I am ready to pull a "new" project into the BOM lineup or the Priority Quilt field.

My quilting work is generally organized into priority work Mon-Fri, with "putz-around" options for when I wake too early to use the longarm (it wakes people where it is). After dinner, Scott and I like to relax with a TV show together, and that is hand stitching time for me. On the weekends, if we're not doing something else, I step away from the priority task and work on community service and/or whichever BOM is up that week. [For those of you who like to find out how other people tick.]  :)
