One Page At A Time

 Here I am, once again apologizing for my absence.  Making a living sure cuts in to the play time!  My week was not totally without accomplishment in the art room.  Since my eyes are cooperating a little better I stitched up the first page in my antique crochet sampler book.  It seems like it could still use something but I'm not sure what so I'm calling it done for the moment.
As usual, I got carried away on the scope of this project and there are a LOT of pages.  Hand stitching really isn't my thing.  I don't have the patience for it.  This project will be a page at a time, like my altered quote books.
I always think I need to complete one thing before I can start the next.  I think it is because my Mother would only let me bring out one toy at a time.  I had to put it away before I could bring out a different one. Sometimes I rush too much to finish something because I want to move on to the next idea.  Thanks Mom.
Hear ye, hear ye, throughout the land!  I am a big girl and I hereby give myself permission to work on multiple projects simultaneously.  Now if I only had a 100' workbench!

I MADE myself finish a project yesterday that I was not happy with...just so I can start something else, hopefully something more FUN! lol Love your creativity and I'm glad your eyes are doing better. Enjoy your day sweet friend!

And here I thought I was the only one who worked on only one project at a time! I don't think I would ever finish anything if I had multiple projects going.
I think your page is beautiful the way it is. If it needs something else, I know you'll figure out what it is!

Maybe that's my problem...too many projects going at once and my brain is always scattered all over the place, lol. I need to focus on one thing at a time. Love your pretty pretty crochet pieces and of course the buttons too.

You definitely may and can work on two ( or even more) projects at a time!! It could even boost your creativity!! Love your button post. Am back now from my vacation and love the loot from yours. The bark cloth from Nina and Joes is lovely!!

Your Mom would have loved me...I only start and finish one project at a time! So glad your eyes are back in business! I love vintage lace, so it will be fun to follow this project!

You are funny! Love your page. I have multiple things going on at once and seem to work best that way.

Ha! Don't we all need 100' tables!

I love your book; what a great way to display those lovely works of art. Sometimes leaving a project for a bit is needed so you can return to it with a fresh POV.

Hi Kathy, I love these pages and would love to one day try my hand at this. Your mom would scold me silly as I have tons of projects all going at the same time. It works for me!! LOL
Glad your eyes are doing so much better. Gorgeous work my friend!
Wishing you a creative week.
Hugs
