Indecision



Back in November, I sewed together a bunch of 1 1/2" strips. The plan was to use the resulting fabric for a new tote bag. I layered it with batting and quilted straight lines about a third of an inch apart and then ran it through the washer and dryer so that it would have that crinkly quality that I love about heavily quilted scrap quilts.


I spent hours on the piecing and even more hours on the quilting. I love the results I got. Unfortunately, I didn't write down the original plan and now I keep second-guessing myself. I know the approximate dimensions I want and that I want boxed corners and a lining. What I don't know is if I want a zipper across the top....or a zippered pocket inside....

This isn't the first time I've had a project completely worked out in my head and then forgotten the original plan.  And even though I'm pretty sure I've figured out what that plan was, I think I want to make some changes.

Do you take notes? Or wing it?

Been there, done that! Lately I've been trying (that's the operative word) to leave notes with the project so I at least have a clue about the next step. Can't say I'm always successful, though. I recently went through all my UFOs and added notes, or in many cases just ideas, for a semblance of a plan.

I have learned to make notes (mainly so I won't change my mind and have ANOTHER project unfinished๐Ÿ˜„)
