For crafters of multiple persuasions

For those of you who do multiple types of crafts, do you ever get overrun with so many ideas that you don’t know where to start and don’t know what to do next? I find myself thinking, “I want to make such and so, and crochet this and that, and knit this project, and paint this pic, etc.”, and before I know it, I am overrun with ideas, don’t know where to start, and often don’t do anything for a few days. Then I will zero in on just one, finish it and go to the next. I am a list maker. Occasionally it frustrates me though. Just wondering what prompts you to do certain crafts and if anyone is like me.

Debbie Pribele ...

√ yup, that’s me.

(and housework is NOT on the list!!) haha

How do I choose? Sometimes it is deadlines (birthdays, collaboration weekly commitments); sometimes it is something new that I see and it just “has to be tried” and sometimes it is “it’s staring me in the face”, calling my name.

The grands are so much fun. Yes, it could be an occasion, or sometimes I see something that screams at me ….. YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS!!!! So many ideas, so little time to do it all. Such a problem!

I have piles of patterns both where I crochet and where I quilt that I will never get to make because there is always something waiting right on the edge of my ideas that has to be done NOW>

Boy do I understand that!!!! I have literally thousands of patterns, and yet find myself creating my own ideas, or working on another craft. Ha ha.
