On Finishing Something
There's a lot of wheel spinning without much traction going on here lately. I have ideas. I have projects. I have deadlines. But I'm having a hard time getting going and actually finishing things. Several recent projects have been utter duds, which demotivates me to try anything else. In an effort to get out of this go-no-where morass, I embarked on two simple projects. And I finished them. And I'm pleased with the results.
The first is the patchwork pillow cover seen above. No pattern, little measuring. Just a pile of scraps (and a couple of new fat quarters to inspire me) and this inspiration. Looking at this pillow just makes me happy - birds, sewing notions, bubbles, lots of blues, a bit of lace - some of my favorite things.
Next, two little skirts for two little misses. Bright and summery with pockets for collecting treasures. I used sew-through elastic which made them come together in no time flat. Now to find t-shirts to match.
You might also note that I've changed my profile picture. The snowy days have been long gone from here. This one is rather windblown, but it will do for now. There we have it, two (or three) finished projects. It feels good. Now, if I can only keep going. Tell me, do you have periods of time where you feel like the wheels are spinning without any traction?
