To get it done, make it fun!This little saying goes a long way for me - tedium is my enemy and fun is my friend! Whether in my quilting room or in life in general... the tasks I procrastinate on are either boring, overwhelming or require attention to detail that I just can't manage at the time. With all of this in mind I'm casting this project in a different light (and humming the NBC Opening Theme to myself)...
Olympics OrganizathonDoesn't that sound more fun already? I have a tendency to start a large project with lots of enthusiasm and have it fade midway. By "going public", making an event out of it and sharing my progress on the blog my chances of success will be greater. And, since many of us wrestle with managing our quilty stuff maybe I can give you some ideas or inspiration to tackle your own trouble spots. I love to see how other quilters organize everything from fabric to tools!

Saturday, February 8th - Sunday, February 23rd with Closing Ceremonies (Final Reveal) to be posted on Monday, February 24th. I will be posting about each Event as they occur... to indulge my need to match my mood Events will be taking place in somewhat random order.
I am VERY motivated by rewards and what would the Olympics be without the medals? Watch for some fun giveaways during the next 2 weeks. As far as rewarding myself I have a few things in mind... but I need to think through my criteria for Gold, Silver or Bronze. After all, it takes a lot of work to earn an Olympic Medal of any color!
