well, lately, for some reason I have been not wanting to blog. It's not that I don't want to, and I still get up and read my daily blogs, but when I think of writing myself, I don't know what to write. But as I read other's blogs I have been having some thoughts.
Lately I have been really stuck on working on one project or another exclusively. For awhile there I was working soley on Love, Joy, Home, and then I realized how quickly my parent's birthdays are approaching and put everything away and pulled out November Quilt and have been working on it exclusively for awhile. I enjoy working exclusively on one piece for the simple fact that you really see progress, alot of progress in a short amount of time, and when I see progress it spurs me on to work more on that particular piece.
However, as I read all your blogs, and see everyone's rotations, I realize just how much variety really does spicen up life (well stitching anyway), And I start thinking of all the things I could be working on, but also realizing that I really need to get these pieces finished and I am afraid that if I try to rotate, then I will get stuck on one other piece and not get back to my "obligation stitching". I could fit it into my rotation, but then I always get stuck on a piece. How do you die hard rotaters do it?! I have got to figure something out! I get somewhat "bored" when I work on the same piece for TOO long, like right now, for instance. I am starting to get the "I don't-really-want-to-work on-this-peice-but-I-know-I-need-to-so-I-will" thing going on with November Quilt, and this type of feeling leads to a slump. I know the best thing to do is to pick up something else for awhile to keep the idea of stitching exciting, which leads me to another thought...
A NEW START!!! Just what I DON'T need! I could do something small, like a book mark or something, maybe a Valentine's Day card for a friend, or something. Oh I don't know...guess I could just work on a small area of one of my WIP's, and when I am done with that one area, put it away and pick up Nov. Quilt again! I must go contemplate this!
