I hear people like this exist, people who can’t start a new project until they’ve finished their current one. In fact, I know some personally and have heard this very phrase come out of their mouths.
And I heard the phrase repeatedly in my head this weekend as I started yet another project that’s been looping around my brain for months.
Said the soft-spoken, bewitching brain, “It’s OK, Karin, this will be a quick, simple project! You can start it and finish it in the same weekend. In the same DAY even! And with all that momentum, you can tackle all the other projects languishing on your craft table. So, go for it. Do it. You know you want to!”
“Just sew the three pieces of fabric together, turn it inside out, and the pillows will be done! Easy peasy! Really!” continued the brain.
And so the hands cut. And the eyes saw. And the brain said, “But ooh, wouldn’t it be lovely if the tops were quilted first?!?”
And oh, the other things the brain suggested. (See that cording below? Badly done, Brain. Badly done.)
In short, the project is nowhere near complete.
And to add insult to injury, the quilted pieces are so stiff, I’m not sure yet that I can use them as pillow fronts! Brain, are you happy?!?
P.S. Am also having tension trouble. Can’t seem to fix it. Grrrr.
P.P.S. I keep forgetting, when the girls are awake, to have them pick a crown recipient out of a hat. Brain is apparently too busy sabotaging my ability to ever finish any project again…
