I came across them last night while rummaging around in the sewing room. I started them a couple years ago. Got bored. Put them away. Got them out again when Aunt Marti from 52 Quilts announced her block a day for winter. I kept up well until an unexpected trip home in January. Once I knew I would not make the goal of one a day through the winter season, working on them lost the appeal. I have 51 completed blocks.
I realized the reason I am not motivated to get back to work on these, is because I have no plan, no vision for what they will become. No final number of blocks, at which point, I can call this done. I need a goal, a finish line. With my City Sampler blocks, I am done at 100. I have 25 done and 75 to go. I don’t need to finish them tomorrow or next week, but I know that after making 75 more, I will be done.
Proverbs 29:18 says, My people perish for lack of vision. Okay, a stack of blocks is not the end of the world, no one is dying here! But this is so true with so many things. We know walking daily is good for us but I need a pedometer to count my steps so I can get to the magic 10,000 steps. Why am I like this? Lots to ponder here.
Linking up with Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday.
