Deadlines help!

For the big-time procrastinator there is nothing like a deadline for finishing things! Even if the deadline is self-imposed, it becomes a real goal.

Our local Annual Art Walk was Friday night and I was one of the artists. It’s mostly a showcase situation, not so much for sales, but it’s fun and I like to talk to people about what I do. It’s not like I have a shortage of things to show, but you always want to have new things. That was my impetus for finishing up my last few Weekly Special pieces. I didn’t rush into it, though. That’s not the Procrastinator’s Way. I waited until the day before the show to mount them!

So, here they are, ready to go…

WS Apr finish 8  WS Apr finish 2 WS Apr finish 3 WS Apr finish 5 WS Apr finish 7

These two found new homes.

WS Apr finish 1

I’m gonna miss my little ladies, but it means I can go searching for some more unique beads to use!

WS Apr finish 4

Obviously, I need some kind of deadline to actually finish things up. As soon as I get a few more in the next set ready to go, I’ll have to look at the calendar and pick a date and reason to get them totally finished. It actually works!!!

  1. How did you finish off the quilts? Are the quilted pieces mounted on another fabric or a canvas? They look very polished.


    • Since I’m not concerned with preserving these for 500 years, I simply glue them to a stretched canvas with a little paint on it. Very occasionally I border them and pull the border around the back of the canvas to finish. Quick, easy, effective!

    • You are welcome. Maybe that’s why I finish a bunch at a time, rather than one by one…I like looking at a group of them!

  2. Having worked as a newspaper reporter and editor, I LOVE deadlines…..something about the adrenaline rush of racing against the clock.
