patchy thoughts

bag project
Originally uploaded by Needleworks, Inc..
I've been feeling really unfocused lately. I have a few ideas floating around in my head for projects, but I can't concentrate on one thing. I can't finish anything either.

I've prided myself in being a monogamous crafter for so long that I feel like I've hit a rough patch. Like the relationship is on the rocks. I'm not being faithful to any one project and I find it very disturbing.

You can see that I added another project to my In The Works section on the sidebar there (compliments of Jenn) - some Jaywalker socks - but I still haven't finished the booties I blogged about weeks ago! And now I am fixated on this new idea.

Pictured above are the reusable bags I got a while back. I actually really love them, but I feel they are a bit plain. I had visions of embellishing them with patches and embroidery. I've even gone so far as picking out some choice scraps of fabric to use, but have not gotten further than that.

What is my problem? Why can't I concentrate? Maybe I burned myself out? I feel like even this post is patchy.

For now I'll have to be content working on that blasted So Called Scarf. It's the only thing I can focus on. Or not focus, as the case may be. Blech.
