I have been avoiding my craft room since Easter weekend. Not sure why that is, but I go up there, turn on the lights, walk around in a daze, turn off the lights and head downstairs.
I think it might have something to do with having too many projects started and not finished. This is my flaw. I start something, and while I am doing that, my mind is on two or three more of a different variation of what I started, and then my mind adds different ideas - expands and expands until I am way beyond what I originally started.
This is what has happened to the applique quilt projects that I had started. I started with one small wall hanging for my main floor guest room - then I discovered mug rugs - I started with one free pattern and from there went to many many more patterns of my own that I designed from colouring books. I have at least 14 cut out and piled on my cutting table - 7 or eight that need a little embroidery, and 3 ready to be quilted.
And fabric on every surface of my upstairs craft area... so much so - that I am repelled by it all!
So my mind switches to primitive work. Primitive sheep, primitive signs, primitive everything! I go to Pinterest - and it begins anew...
Oh boy oh boy - I am my own worst enemy!
What to do?
Well for starters I have to clean up fabric everywhere, and put it away. Then maybe I should go back to January's stitching projects which are in a cabinet in the sun room on the main floor.
Good plan - I am going to go back to January and work my way forward...
Trouble is the first next nice spring day - and I will be outside again and forget all about any kind of indoor projects.
But first - I have to check out the newly re-opened Uniques and Antiques shop in town - today! The owner has been posting pictures of her inventory on her Face Book page all week... yup - gonna go there today.
Then I will go back to January... or not!
