I haven't crocheted in days......
I haven't wanted to.......
I just got over a nearly 8 month long "I don't want to! (pout, pout , pout)" phase.
This is not good.....
As I type this I am surrounded by yarn.
An amazing smorgasbord of yummy goodness in every color and texture and fiber content imaginable.
It's as though a bag of skittles exploded in my office.
Why doesn't this make me happy?
Normally at this time of year I am happily working on custom orders for Moose Threads fans.
As soon as I got done with one project, another request would pop up. It was awesome.
Now instead. of working on custom orders, or items to list in my shop for that matter, I am paralyzed with fear.
I swear I can hear those unfinished projects whispering to me from the back of my supply closet, where I stuffed them oh so long ago.
The blanket that I abandoned 1/3 of the way through
The dress that needs just a few more inches
The yarn I purchased to make my dad a sweater.......2 years ago.....
Finish me.....love me......wear me......why don't you like me......why did you abandon me.....ME ME ME
It's a little hard to work with so many needy projects clamoring for attention.
Every time I look at that closet it's as though staring at a bunch of puppies that have been picked up, played with and then abandoned for the next cute thing that comes along.
I can only take so much abandoned crochet project guilt.
So here is what I plan to do.
I aim - custom orders permitting- to work on one unfinished item a month until I have them all completed.
Let's hope I don't collect anymore along the way.
