I'm sure you are all thinking that I have far too many projects going at once, and you would be correct. I really need to cut down on the in-process inventory. But sometimes I get stuck on a particular section of a project and need to leave it awhile while I go through various options in my mind. My current projects are divided into two main (rather large) categories. First the easy ones:
- Waterfall Christening Gown
- Wee Care Gowns
- Rosebuds and Hemstitched Baby Gown
- Smocked Cell Phone case
- Garnet Purse
- Bits of Bullions Bubble
- Celtic Knot Blanket
- Black and white quilt
Where am I going with all this? While I think it's a good thing to have a few different projects going, eight is a bit too much. I think I'll try to list all of these on a project page and slowly work down the inventory to a manageable level. One of my big problems is that I'll have all of these projects going, and then something will pop up that I just Have To Work On. For instance, the Wee Care Gowns. I pleated the gowns I brought home from a Guild meeting, and was so frustrated by the way they were sewn that I just had to make a few more. The photo way up above is the second of these. And then there is another few potential projects rattling around in my brain that I will just have to start, so here I go again increasing my in-process inventory.
What do all of you do? Do you start one project and see it through before starting another? Do you have just a few going at the same time? Or are you like me, with way too many project in work at once? Do tell!
