Unfinished Projects and New Cutting Table

by 3°DB in


Have you ever had projects piling up one after the other?  Working on a project to get distracted by another garment that you MUST make immediately?  Lol, then you're just like me.  One weekend I took a break to organize my studio and noticed the plethora of incomplete projects.  (Quick update: Finished 3 of the outfits pictured here)

Jackets, skirts, pants, client's order, sweater top...all need my love and undivided attention

I decided to make a promise to myself and not cut out any more garments until I've completed all these outfits pictured; or at least 3/4ths.  In all seriousness, my mom has the practice of working on one project at a time.  She says having more than one project in progress makes her nervous.  I began feeling anxious and closed in with the projects adding up.  So time to listen to my mother on this one.

I blame this new cutting table for my distraction. Before the purchase, I would use my formal dining table and or my kitchen table for cutting out.  Tired of seeing my cut fabric in the same place I entertain company, I looked for a table and found the perfect one at Crate & Barrel to place in my studio.
