1 start something with noble ambitions
2 procrastinate for ages (sometimes months)
3 rustle up something at the last minute that is not related in any way with what I started in the first place.
Which is why I have so many stashes of "work in progress". Here is just one:
But armed with my new word - Choice - I have chosen to
a) book, then ring fence "work" time in my diary (in pencil, but it's a start)
b) decide which WIPs I actually want to do still, and chuck the others (gasp)
c) actually choose one of them and do it!
So now I can proudly present "my process"
First, choose what to do. I chose this watercolour spiral today.
Second, add a stitch'n'tear backing and choose a thread
Third, stitch by machine and wonder what to do next
Four, tip out a shamefully tangled collection of threads and set to
Five, fight - really fight - the urge to do something, anything else eg make curtains, sort recipes, declutter another cupboard...
Six, audition various additions - including a washer found on the doorstep and a twig circle made last summer.
Not finished yet, but I'm very chuffed so far - not least because I actually stuck at something!
