I am trying to fight it hard.
I have come to realise that I am one of those people who simply cannot sew in ends as they go along. I have an idea, I want it finished. Simple as that. I know that if I try to be a good girl and sew in as I go along, I would lose the will to live and no project would ever get finished. I resign myself to the fact that at the end of all the motif making and the putting together, I have a few days (possibly a week if a mega blanket) of sewing in ends. I don't mind this so much. I know it fills many with dread. A few evenings with a project sat on my lap, just methodically sewing in as I half gaze at something on the box. I can do that. Yes, I can totally do that.
I'm not sure why the latest blanket is taking so long. I cannot buckle down. I'm loving it put together, and I know I will love it more when the very last end is sewn in. So why is it so difficult to get it finished. I'm 3/4 there, but I can only seem to manage 15 minutes at a time without needing to get on with something else. I'm dying of boredom this time round. Strange, as I usually am all excited at this stage. And it's not as if i'm not loving it either. I don't know what's got into me.
So, as I could have got it finished and all tickety boo by the end of the weekend, it still stares at me.....and frowns. I just had to escape it and start something else. Something i've had visions of for a while. Trouble is, i'm bored with that too. I think it'll be okay when it's done....well i'm hoping so. I'm looking forward to the embellisment........but it looks mega boring at the moment...... and i'm mega bored doing it. Actually, it looks even more boring seeing it in the above image.
OH MY WORD, WHAT AM I DOING?
I just hope it will transform form an ugly duckling into a half decent swan. I really need sticking power, with both of these projects.
I'm hoping this phase of boredom will soon pass.
