Cleaning up my Stuff

I spent most of the day cleaning and organizing my sewing area.  Going through all your stuff can be both  exciting and depressing.
I get excited when I find tops I have made and forgotten about because they have been put away to await quilting. This is Reminiscence one of my first applique quilts.
As I keep digging and cleaning I start to find more things like these "Flourishes" blocks I completed four and stopped.

And there are the Carol Doak BOM paper pieced blocks I think I made these in 2008.  They really need to be put into a quilt.  I even know the layout I want to use.

I have 12 of these 30's blocks I want to make an Irish Chain quilt with them.
Now this is not all I found but  you see now I am getting a little depressed.  
How will I ever get all of this done?  Especially when there are so many new quilts I want to make.
This is why I don't clean more often.  I am going to just put all this back where I found it and continue on my merry way making more blocks to put into little containers to be found at a later date.
I hope you are better at finishing your projects than I am.
Happy Stitching,
Nancy

Sounds like you need to find a longarm quilter to help you out! Oh, come to think of it, you are one! Now I see what you've been busy doing.

Love the applique top! I am a big fan of the Baltimore style... Cute blocks too, I am sure you will make a lovely quilt from them :)
Best wishes,
