Yesterday I was fiddling with my Flickr account and sorting out photographs. I created a set for WIP's. As I was placing the photos in the set it was apparent that I had way too many things that I hadn't finished, instead of just having one or two photos I had eight projects to be completed. One of those was this table runner. I had sewn the binding to the front and pinned it to the back ready to hand sew, then left it sitting on the table, slowly being buried under patterns, fabrics and other projects.
I have just finished it, and as the table has disappeared under the wonky log cabin blocks and fabric I have nowhere to photograph it. So I'm cheating and using my previous photos, but it is well and truly finished. One down, seven WIP's or possibly UFO's to go.
Which brings up the question when does a WIP become a UFO?
Is there a statutory time limit?
I've been having quite a productive week, not necessarily of craftiness, but I have succeeded in doing a few things that I've been putting off for
a while most of the year. Yesterday I changed my name on my frequent flyers rewards program. I was supposed to have done it months ago, but being lazy, didn't. We are going away for a holiday soon, so I have to do it before then, otherwise I won't get the points. I also changed my name at the telephone company. It was so easy, but I just hate having to take all the paperwork and explain why I'm changing my name.
Today was the day that some filing needed to be done. When I started putting it away, I was embarrassed to see that the last time I filed was in December. Hmmmmmmmm. Filing is not high on my list of fun things to do, but 8 months, that's bad.
Are you that bad, do you put things off if there is no deadline?
