My PHD list and it is only a partial list

Welcome to my world of PHD's or projects half done.  I knew I had a lot in different stages but until I was cleaning and organizing I really had no clue.

So, why do I share this?   I am trying to turn over a new leaf in 2020 and learning to be organized.   I need to somehow be accountable for what I start and get it finished.   I have never been really organized.   You can walk into my moms home and she has everything totally organized.   For me, 1 or 2 rooms might be organized.   In the last few months I have noticed my brain is really cloudy, you know that feeling at least I hope I am not the only one, and I just wonder if all the clutter is causing it.

I have people who tell me I am amazing, because I do this and that, but I may be amazing at starting projects but I am not amazing at finishing.  So in 2020 I am doing what it takes to finish the projects that I have started.

So, I am following some groups on Facebook that are having challenges to get these projects done.  Each month a number is chosen and you go down the list to that number and that is the project you work on.  My plan is that as soon as that project is done is to choose another one, by counting down that many more projects. 

Will it work?   Only time will tell, but I hope so. I want these quilts done and given to those whom they were made for so they can be loved.

Some were done just for fun and I may try to sell them or donate them.

As I get these done, I will definitely share them with you.  I am pretty sure there are some missing from the list.   But at least this is a start.

I am always open to suggestions on the best way to organize, so please share your favorite tips with me.


  1. Long list but you have it and you've had pictures of most of then. I post my project list on Saturday on my blog, cross off items when done and add new to the bottom...since I copy and paste that every week I get reminded of it and I feel does help to have the list. Type it out here and also show pics with each one....

    1. Thanks Bea. I do remember seeing your lists and I have always thought what a neat idea. I can't take another Christmas of finishing up Christmas morning. 2020 is my year.
      Thanks for the advice.

  3. Good luck! I am join in the PhD program this year. I have done a pretty good job, but an ambassadorship which I loved, pulled me from my things. Now I am back!
