There has been a very small amount of needlework accomplished around here.
Isabella has her hem stitched:
Now she needs to be washed and pressed.
My lunchtime-at-work project has also been completed:
This, too, needs to be washed and blocked.
And I started a new crewel project for lunchtime-at-work:
Meanwhile, I've been feeling a little overwhelmed.
I have piles of projects I would like to start. I have way more UFOs than I am comfortable having. And the top of the auxiliary finishing basket won't close.
The problem is that I can't decide what I want to work on. Sometimes having too many options is worse than having too few. I've spent a couple of weeks picking things up and putting them down without feeling a strong desire to work on any of them.
One of my professors in grad school said that when you can't make a decision, ask yourself, "what do I really want?"
And, as I was writing this, it occurred to me that what I really want is to have an empty bag, basket, box, or bin. I just want to have stuff done. I doubt I'll pick one container and work my way to the bottom, but it would be a start.
So the thing I'm going to mull over now is determining what bag, basket, box, or bin is nagging at me most. And as soon as I get home from work tomorrow, I'm going to pull something--who knows what--out of whatever bag, basket, box, or bin I decide to tackle. And I am going to work on that something until I get it done.
