Every season has a focus for me. Summer is all about family road trips and camping. Winter is storm season here, so we hunker down and spend time together at home. Spring is a time of renewal, I’m ready to clean and declutter my house and start planning for summer.
Fall is all about crafting. It is this time of year that I start organizing my craft room and thinking of projects to do. Last week I posted about organizing my yarn stash. This week I’ve been looking at my unfinished projects.
There is a sweater, that just needs one sleeve. A pencil scarf that is only half done. A shawl that has just a few rows. A couple of sets of hot pads begun and set down. At least two headbands and four hats. The never ending granny square afghan I started for using up my scraps. And another crochet afghan that was given to me in pieces that just needs a few center blocks, then it will be ready to put together.
I tend to be a bit ADHD when it comes to my projects. I love to start new projects! The thrill of a new pattern and excitement of a new item get me going. Then my interest wanes as my attention is distracted by another shiny new project.
I have set a goal to finish all of my started projects, except the granny square blanket, before the new year. How do you manage all your unfinished projects? Are you one that finishes each one before beginning another? Do you limit how many you have going at once? Or, are you like me, and you realize just how many projects you have started only when you clean your craft room?
