I have issues…project issues that is.

     Am I the only one that has 4 gazillion projects going on at the same time? Mr. M says that I have the attention span of a gnat and I try to take it as an accomplishment, but maybe he has a barbed point.

     I spend 5 minutes sewing, 10 on that project there, read blogs for a bit, shop ebay, a half hour walking Murphy Grace through the estuary, a minute or two dreading my upcoming 20 year reunion with a friend via email, etc. I get tired just typing about how much little stuff I have done today.

     Well that is it, time to make myself accountable to my bloggy friends. Here are the projects that are scattered around the house right now and it is high time that I finish before soon, if not before the week is up.

We have the silver pitcher that Embellished Bayou and I both agreed needs some added bling. I started this morning, but was so shaky that I stopped painting.

     Then there is the waterfall nightstand that I sanded and got one coat of paint on yesterday. Notice the veneer is no longer cracked because I just ripped it all off, tiny section by tiny section.

     There are all of the paintings and such that need to be hung. Some I know where they are going, some I have no clue.

Just where should a girl hang a mirror and a star?

Then there is the sewing project that I am working on in the dining area. The project is a drawstring sack, designed by Mary Jo Hiney, for a contest at The Cotton Ball. However, I can’t pay attention long enough to follow directions, so it is slow going. I think that I fell off the track of her pattern days ago, oh well. It won’t win, but will be a Murphy Grace and I original.

     There are a few more, but a girl can only admit so much online. So am I the only crazed person that has multiple projects going in so many places?

I'm sure I've got you beat! But I'm not gonna show and tell! I did enough of that yesterday with the dust bunnys swinging all over my chandelier. Why can't I see them when I'm standing right there?

You definitely are not the only one with multiple projects. I am sure it is way more common than you think. :)

Oh, it's so good to read this and know I'm not the only one who suffers from it. I'm not flitting around intentionally, it just somehow happens.
I've decided to pick a room (master bedroom) and try really hard to focus on that and put my time/energy/money there, until it's done. Then I'll move on.

I thougt I was bad to start projects and jump ship. Are you an Aries? I will be posting photos of the clock when I get it. So stay tuned.

Kudos to you for being honest! I have several unfinished projects (mostly thrift store finds that need a coat of spray paint). But my worst habit is marking everyone's blog tutorials in my favorites so I can go back and make them later when I have nothing else to do.

oh girl, you are SO not the only one! when my husband comes home from work and sees me working on something, he says "where are you going?" and i say, "what?" you see, he says i only start projects when i'm about to go somewhere; meaning, at the worst possible time ever. meanie!

Hey, Gwen! No, girl, you are not alone. I think most of us are this way. Let me start my unfinished list: my slipcovers, pillows for the sofa, my guestbedroom, mending.......and so you won't feel really bad....3 different window treatments that have sat in the box for over a year!!!!! Does that help?

Ohhh Girl I feel your pain!!! I have a MILLION going right now and it's insane in my craft room, ok my dining room too, oh and my basement, lol. I think I am taking a break from thrifting this weekend just so I can get all said started projects done and not add more to my list. It will be so hard as Goodwill is calling my name as is the 100s of garage sales this weekend.

I can't wait to see your finished projects! Thanks So Much for Stoppin by to see me!
