Yikes. That’s all I can say is, “Yikes.” When I started going around photographing all the projects I have lined up, waiting for me to start on them, it was kind of scary. Will I ever get to them all? And, if so, *when*? It’s not like I don’t have other stuff I have to do–you know, like deadlines and stuff. And it’s not like I have so much empty space in my house that I need to have projects hanging around to fill it up. Like decorations or something.
See what I mean? These are all garments ready to alter, in most cases already matched with floss and beads and scraps of fabric:
It looks like a total disaster–and, as I admitted, it *is* scary–but it’s also inspiring. Energizing. Motivating: the more things I have to do, the more I want to tackle. I’m willing to spend hours in the evening working on something just so I can finish it and get to the next thing, because The Next Thing is always the most exciting. And then the one after that. And then the one after that! I get inspired just seeing what I’ve got waiting for me.
Is this the way it works for you, too? Or does it work differently? I’d love to hear about it–post a comment and tell us about the process~~
