Unfinished crafts and projects rack me up with a certain type of guilt, that sometimes it is quite suffocating. I can hear the half way knitted scarf calling my name in the middle of the night (and no, it doesn't sound like that Billy Joel song). It is more like a shouting, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FINISH ME???
This scarf is almost finished, but I stopped in the year 2005. I don't even like that color combination any more, or anything for that matter. Usually, I'm quite good of getting rid of things, but apparently not of this.
Or this. A rectangle, that was supposed to be a vest for my first son (he is 11 now). If I would have finished this, my little one would be wearing it right now. But the ifs, would haves etc... don't really count, or do they? Not my favorite color either!!
And now for the year 2013, is my quilting project. It is still not an unfinished work, but I'm very afraid it will end up like the above. I'm finding a million excuses not to continue this, but then I start to think I'm halfway through (make that 63.5% done). There is still lots to be done, but I know the finished project will be worth it (that's another thing I keep telling myself), and like my quilting teacher says, "FOCUS."
I hope I'm not the only one with unfinished projects in closets or boxes. But how do you deal with them, is what I would like to know? Do they get to you? Do you simply move forward to the next?
Pay someone to finish it? Take it out of the box and finish it??
Wishing you a most excellent Monday!
