What to do...Toss or Hide

Okay, so I wouldn't really toss out all my WIPs (yes, I am still struggling with them), but I could destash or giveaway the pieces. Or I can just hide them for a later date.

How do you handle the to-dos? I can't be the only crafter who gets a bit of a backlog. I had cut out lots of bags, mostly from leftovers or fabrics I wasn't so sure what to do with at the time. And timeline? Some of this stuff has been at the bottom of the pile for, um...months (some even a year). So what to do...


I have been trying to figure out why it is so hard to just let it go. It may be that whole "Quitter" thing. I don't want to be one. Hubby says not to think of it as quitting since the biggest reason they got to the bottom of the pile in the first place is because I had actual orders. I guess he's right. Yup - got that documented!

I really do need to do this. If you read my post about the things I want to do for 2010, you'll understand. I have a long list of 'want-to-makes' and don't want to delay those.

I'm going to do it...today. Find a box & store them for a rainy day. Or a day where I decide to destash them :P And then start cutting out fabric baskets & backpacks & a table runner. Woo Hoo?

You are not the only crafter with tons of WIPs and a long to do list! Don't feel bad...it happens to all of us.
I like to make several of one thing too, so when I get a custom order, it all gets set aside til I can get it all out again!
