How Many Projects???
Confession time. I am a procrastinator. I love to start new projects, but have a hard time staying on task and finishing them. This is a sneak peek of a wool project I started ages and AGES ago. I love this project, too, but have I finished it yet? NO! Well, to be honest, I ran out of Perle cotton thread, so had to go to Fat Quarters to get some more. I got some, but haven't finished it yet. Actually, now I can't remember where I put the purchased Perle cotton thread. (sigh). I only have a small area of this project to finish and then I'll post the whole thing. I love the colors in this project. They didn't photograph well under the incandescent light, so when I finish the project, which is a table runner, I will photograph it outside. The background is black and there are no pinks in this project. Ok, so on to the question of the post. How many projects?? How many projects to you have going at one time? I truly believe I must have Crafter's ADD. I start a project, ANY project, and before I'm done, I start something else. I've just looked into the fabric closet (yes, I have a closet just for fabric - you're surprised by that?!) and saw at least two quilt tops that have to be sewn together, at least 3 new patterns and projects I just bought at he recent quilt show in San Diego. If you've followed my blog, you know that I've dabbled in making wool felt beads from roving. Yes, another project. I think I just like to start new things. I don't think that's anything new to anyone. Like when we buy a new rubber stamp - we want to make something with it right away, right? Ok then. But looking around this craft room, I've got cards to make and finish for the jj DT, cards to finish for my personal stash (pieces everywhere), and lists of projects I want to make for classes for the Cupboard. Not to mention all the craft supplies and personal paperwork I need to put away. It all feels so overwhelming. Is it a sagittarian trait that I do this? I need a personal assistant to get me on track and keep me on track. How ever am I going to get myself organized enough to run a stamp business? I have no idea. How many projects do you have going at one time? How do you keep organized?
