projects in queue

Do you have a good place to organize the projects you're working on? 
I sure don't. 
I usually pile them up on my craft desk, so much so that I never actually use it as a craft desk.
But I'm trying to keep my desk cleared off, so the project pile has shifted to a nearby chair.
(A chair that desperately needs a slipcover. Any tips?)

So here's what I've got in the works:
1. Padding for my camera bag(s)
2. Recovering a pillow with a broken zipper. Not quite sure how I'm going to do it yet, but I sure like this.
3. The floral jersey is for a Sweetpea dress, like this, but with a drawstring instead of a sewn neckline. She has requested matching dresses for her dolls.
4. Dad's old shirt for this dress. Sweetpea is going to have a closet full of dresses soon. I'm a little jealous.

I'm not working at these things very quickly. I get inspired in the morning, but then have a whole day full of scheduled activities before I can get to sewing, and by then I've lost my motivation. Maybe by posting them here, I'll be held accountable. Feel free to nudge me about my progress. :)

What are you working on this spring?

I understand the loss of motivation. I always get excited about a project at first but the longer it sits the more it becomes a chore! Good luck, and thanks for linking.

So your projects in queue resting station is a project itself! Love it! I'm waiting for all this wind and rain to finally be done so I can get to painting...bedroom walls, chairs, frames, whatever else gets in my way and looks like it could use a fresh coat!

Ugh... you're killing me with those cute dress patterns :) T-shirts and pants are starting to feel really redundant in this household!
