Quilting on the reward system

Remember when we were kids & mom would cajole good behavior by offering a reward? 

“We’ll go get ice cream after your shots?”   “If you’ll just behave through this trip to the grocery store, we’ll go to the park.”

Ok, maybe it was just my mom, but I find that the reward system still works on me.

I have a huge list of things I need to work on for others this week.


Maybe I can finish them all, maybe not.  It’s still a toss up.  The only push on finishing this week is me.  I want to get these finished & reward myself!

Then I have to decide on my reward:

Log Cabin quilt I have already cut out

chevron log cabin

Finish the Dresden UFO

coquette dresden

Maybe treat myself to a completely NEW project with some of the yummy new fabrics

Maybe put some fabric on the long arm & just play/practice

Decisions.  Decisions

So, do you work on the reward system in your quilting & crafting?
