Just read a blog were one of the artists admits she starts something and then sometimes switches to another project.
I found myself doing the same thing.
I get stuck on a project that is new to me or is more of a challenge than I expected and I get so exasperated that I just have to walk away.
Now I have one skill that I really am good at.
So I always have something going on that I can pick up anytime.
I have been able to work every pattern that has ever come my way.
Now sometimes it takes a lot of uncrocheting to get that project done.
But the confidence that I have when it comes to crocheting is unwavering.
So whenever I am stuck on something, I just leave it alone, maybe in the middle of a stroke, if painting and head back to my comfortable place crocheting.
I have made dresses, hats, gloves, scarfs, flipflops and anything that can be made.
I made an evening gown one year and wore it for a New Years Even gown.
Being made of yarn it got very hot and started to sag.
Yes, I made it two piece and had to roll the skirt up at least 4 inches to get through the night.
Well I was the talk of the evening.
So that is how I stir my muses and get the juices flowing.
On my work table right now.
A personal card with my favorite flower, hydrangea.
Plarn totes with Journey Beads for the Journey Bead website for Charity.
Can't get the colors I want with the beads.
Struggling with the pocket in the lining.
I have a hard time getting the tips of the paper to stay down even after gluing them.
Any ideas out there?
Working on ATC cards.
I just go from one to the other.
Is this consider hoarding?
No I guess it is clutter.
But I know I will finish these projects and as soon as one is done a new one will take its place.
Wish I could get those muses to even out the ideas instead of bombarding my brain and then just letting me down.
