Year of the Pigs

Jill's question for this week is "What makes you put a project to the side and start something else?" Hmmmmm! Good question Jill! I really had to think about this one! But, I didnt have to look far for an example.
Take a look at this picture please. It looks innocent enough. You can clearly see a Ninja BOM project in a hoop. Also, you can see an almost finished handquilted Halloween quilt. Harmless? HA! You can also see that the embroidery is being stitched and the Halloween quilt has been shoved to the back of the table and the cat has been sleeping on it!!

I had to go back and think as to why I decided to start another stitchery instead of working on my quilt that I really want finished. They are both handwork that I love to do. I can stitch both up while relaxing and watching tv. I only have a a little while to sew today so I can't finish either project.

I have come to the conclusion that I pushed this PIG to the side because I wanted to work on something new!! That's it...I just wanted a new project! I am really stressed right now. I won't get to my sewing room after today for over a week and I just wanted something new and fresh. I'm sure there are so many of us that love a project that we are working on but will push it aside to do something this a few times and the projects start to add up!!

So, I'm just going to spend the rest of the afternoon sewing my little Ninja and not feel too bad cause I know my Halloween quilt willl be there waiting for me!

First off, I LOVE that little Ninja BOM! That is sooooooooo cute!

I have a zillion PIGS, UFO's, WIP's and everything else. I dread sorting through all of this when we move in the new house later this year! I will probably cry. :)

New projects are so much fun!

I'd love to see both projects when they're finished.

True! It will be waiting for you! And starting something nice is always a great thing. Maybe I should start a new project....

Oh I can't wait to see them finished. I have so many things started it is confusing which one to start on first.

I love the Halloween fabric!

I get like that sometimes with making jewelry. I'll start one project and then I can't enjoy it if there's something else I'd much rather be working on.

I have a box of "ideas" and when I see something that inspires me, I put it in the box for next time that I need inspiration :)
