Quilter's Attention Deficit

I don't know if it's because it's spring, or it's just a pattern of behavior, but I have so, so many projects that I want to make. I'm not sure where to start. Maybe I have attention deficit disorder?

Liberty Fields from Material Obsession

These two that I played with in EQ7.

Plus the three UFOs that I have already started, Buckeye Beauty, String X, and my blue and white Hovering Hawks. Then there are the four knitting projects that I want to work on.

This is a shawl from Ravelry. It's a free pattern, but you do have to join Ravelry to be able to get it.

Then there are the socks knit two at a time on circular needles. It's a technique that I've never tried, but it avoids the second sock syndrome. I also want to make a long sleeved cardigan and a short sleeved, lacy summer cardigan.

Tack on to my list of things I want to make for myself are the eleven quilts that I need to quilt for customers. I think I need to learn to prioritize. What do you think?


  1. Short answer: "Yes."
    Long answer: If you have ADD, then I must have it 100 times that. However, I did make a list of UFO's in different stages that I would like to complete this year. The list keeps growing. One of our guild members (person in charge of show and tell) challenged us to do so by awarding us points for each project totally completed (with binding on). Whoever wins will win a basket worth $100 from Quilter's Coop. I don't plan on winning, but I do want to make a dent in my list. Am feeling a lot better now, so I'm hoping I can do it.
