The Queen of Works in Progress!

If I hadn't made this sweet little crown for a bear last year, I'd be wearing it myself right now. I would, however, also need a sash reading The Queen of Works in Progress!! Not only do I juggle several different decorating projects at once, I do it with my bear design as well. Why is it I just can't seem to do one thing start to finish like those HGTV decorating and project shows?

Take for example the fact that I had four bears nearing completion. Well, dingaling me forgot to order supplies to finish said bears. So, what do I do? I start more bears, of course! Now I have six more bears underway!! Yeah, 10 bears now!! Guess what? The supplies I ordered still aren't here. What exactly does that mean? It means I go shopping for drape fabric to soften the lines of my new canopy bed and pick up the lamp for the bedside table. Hey now, there's a project that's almost finished!!

Scary how my world rotates, isn't it? I just work in circles!! That's what I call getting 'round to it!! Ha!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

works in progress are always good, it means that there actually is progress...then when you finally finish it feels really good :)

I agree with the others, works in progress are great, because you know that you'll get there eventually. Love that crown!

Yes... good to have lots of "stuff" on the go. What if you just don't feel like climbing around on the bed doing a canopy tomorrow?... well, then you can work on a bear instead if supplies show up. See? it is perfect.

And... BIG "and" here....don't forget those HGTV shows have been edited plenty!! It takes them more than all day or all week sometimes to make a half hour show ! You know darn well they are doing other knitting (or stitching on a bear?) while they wait for the next shot or a touch up on their make-up...lol

But Aleta, all of your projects are just so beautiful once completed ! They are so worth the wait ! You must be doing something right !

OH MY, we all do it! I have a passion for collecting supplies for projects I think I'm going to do. I see something that I want to create and I have to RUN to the store and get everything necessary, especially if it involves new tools! I have more potential projects in my studio than anyone could possible finish! xo, suzy
