a needle in my hand

I consider myself a jack of many trades, a master of nothing. 

Too many interests, handcrafts and arts I like to do or at least want to learn how to do. With the varied projects laying around my home, sometimes I get discombobulated just attempting to decide what I want to work on:
  •  the hemstitched napkins for Claire, 
  • the knitted tea cozy, 
  • Charlottes' Easter dress, 
  • the pencil case birthday present for Charlotte's friend, 
  • or embroidering on the crazy quilt table runner.
 I will not even go into the new projects I am planning to begin.

Today I went to a fabric sale and could not refuse the opportunity to add to my stash of gorgeous fabrics, it only makes the projects grow to even higher realms, and to add to this, a friend gave me a stack of some old Sew Beautiful Magazines. 

More decisions. 
Daydreaming never seemed so good.

Oh, I have the same problem. But actually, maybe it's good to have multiple things going on - something for every creative mood ;).

I like to do a variety of creative things too. I think I'd get bored doing the same thing all the time.

You and I, we are very much alike. I am knitting a hat, finishing up the hand stitching on a quilt, have a skirt for Beans laying partially finished, and two more for Squirt that just need the final touches. Then there are the scrapbooks for the Wee Three, nevermind the other projects whirling in my head. I hadn't even thought of Easter dresses :oO!

Can't wait to see some of your completed projects! You are such a talented stitcher!
