Distracted

It's not like I don't have anything else to do ....







So can someone please enlighten me as to why I thought today was a good day to start something new?



Hopeless. I really need to finish something....

Not sure about there - but the sun made an appearance here and changed the whole mood - something new is just the thing.
Enjoy your new project.

It's Showdown weekend. I understand. Since I finished my footy quilt, my team hasn't lost a game. But you'll have to rush to get it finished in time for the game.

Dont worry Shay, you are not alone! I start new things ALL the time, finishing them is another story....

Youve got a bit of variety going on there so i dont think you will get bored!

clare's craftroom said...

Well I am no help to you there at all ! I never get distracted . What were we talking about ?

Marg said...

Hmmmm wrong colours Shay!
I seem to remember this morning you saying you were going to work on your zigzag quilt, and cut more fabric for paper piecing. I even have the email as proof. Looking at the pics - you have worked on the zig zag since Tuesday so I'll let you off on that one, but what were you thinking........black red and yellow, so not the right colours!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you not know that they have just discovered a new strain of ADHD, it's called AQD (attention quilters disorder) and a closely linked one ACD (attention crafters disorder) they have also linked those two with CPD (compulsive purchasing disorder) and CARWYB (causing a riot with your buddy) and finally I think you know the D&D one... but we'll make that GWWD&D (giggling wildly whilst drunk and disorderly) - see, you're not alone - there are many of us AQD ACD CPD CARWYD GWWD&D out there :0)

Nothing like the rush of a new project, got myself some more sherbet pips this week and I am starting a new quilt, and pattern testing at the same time, so I had to start a new project didn't I..... and I assure you I have lots of other things I should be attending to... still avoiding, though I have got most of my photo's ready to go.

Just because you can!!! I kept going back to your gorgeous dresden plate quilt. Love it! At least you know you don't suffer this affliction alone lol.

Suzan said...

You just have a little "Quilters ADD" - perfectly normal!

Jindi's Cottage said...

I really don't see the problem...every day is a good day to start something new...now what was I doing?...oh bugger it, I'll just find something else...

Jackie said...

Maybe it is a good day to start a new project! :) All I can say is that you're not going to find any new project police around here.

Distracted? How are the creative juices to run if one doesn't.....I sometimes wake up with designs going around in my head....putting them to fabric is something else though....I love, love the dreden. finish it up for show and tell!

Angie said...

Blame it on ADD...there is a 'syndrome' for everything these days, I am sure we all suffer from some thing thant can be treated by a shrink!

Ann Marie said...

Same reason I always do, it is to prevent boredom!!!

Logopaedchen/Kirsten said...

Because you are disorganized, unable to finish things, compulsive, easily distracted and so on...but who cares...did you have fun starting your new project? Well than everything is o.k.

Seams Inspired said...

It will all be there waiting on you when you're ready to start up on those projects again. In the meantime, enjoy the fun your new project is bringing. :o) Happy Sunday!

Lisa said...

I have the same problem. Today I decided to finish up some projects and put them on ETSY. Finished a couple, but somehow I still want to start something(s) new. Who knows. Mabye when I run out of fabric? I'm on a no-shopping deal, but I think I could do way too much with what I already have. Sigh....

Vesuviusmama said...

I love your label "attention span of a gnat". I can relate. And as a reader, I've gotta say it is more fun to see you working on lots of things simultaneously than one project for weeks on end, so keep on jumping around, I say!

thea said...

what is the new project? I love all the different things you are doing. It is really inspiring/encouraging for me. At least you go back to the other things at some point (that's what the PhD challenge is about, right). I strive to be more like you.

Hope your weekend has been great!

Baa-Me Kniits said...

Glad to see I am not the only one who does this :-)

Audra said...

I agree with Baa-Me...Glad to know I am not the only one who suffers from this affliction. I think I have adult ADD. Shiny Ball Syndrome. Off on another tangent, etc.

Hugs!

It is always good to start something new when you're close to finishing the things you're working on. That way, you'll never be bored.
