A Milestone

A Milestone

Sometimes the easiest way to manage big sewing projects is to break it down into smaller goals.  I celebrate first page finished, first row finished, halfway point, last full sized page and finally finished.  For the biggest projects I’ll add more goal points but you get the idea.  Each goal is a stepping stone along the path to the finally finished goal.

Right now I’ve reached the last full sized page goal with the finish of page 23.  I like partial pages, mentally they feel like they should stitch up quicker after all they’re not a full size page, they sound small.  On Computer Catastrophes the partial pages are around two-thirds the size of a regular page so they won’t stitch that much quicker; I’m still a few months away from a finish.

But I’m getting that buzz knowing that a finish is in sight and it’s exciting because I’ve been working on this one for a few years.  This project and I have had our problems but we’re over that now, it’s my focus piece and unlikely to come off the frame until it is finished.  I might spend an evening or two working on QS Arthur for a slight change, I’ll be spending some evenings working on a mystery sock knit along that I signed up to but most of my time will be devoted to ticking off those final 7 pages.
