Goals for 2011 and Quilter's ADD
Okay, I had an epiphany this past weekend.
Whenever hubby asks why I have so many fibery projects around the house, I've always told him that the colors and textures make me really happy. He gives me a hug, and walks away muttering to himself that he could never get any work done with so much stuff around. I shake my head, knowing that he doesn't understand my creativity.
Sunday afternoon: I realized that I have trouble finishing projects because there is too much visual clutter!!! I get majorly distracted. I told this to hubby and he literally, LITERALLY, fell to the floor laughing. Okay, so sometimes he is right.
My goal for 2011 is to have only 2 projects visible at any one time. One for quilting/sewing and one for knitting/crocheting/beading/paper stuff. Anything else has to be contained in a bag, box, or bin. I figure one year is long enough to REALLY know if I am more productive that way. I am also going to keep a journal with projects in queue, and projects finished.
This is kinda scary. I've always worked with my areas looking all Kaffe Fassett colorful and cluttered. We will see how it goes!
PS: Fishies Rug is on hold until I can order the yarn I need to finish.
PPS: Remember when saddle shoes were cool? I wish cool shoes were that comfy now!
