Finish What You Start

One of the reasons I like blogging is because it pushes me to do things.  To try things, to make things. Since I've started blogging, I've done so many new things - and more importantly - finished them! That's definitely something I enjoy. And there's nothing so unsatisfying than never getting to see a blogger's finished product! I think without the blog I'd also be much more prone to sitting around watching anime/tv and doing nothing.    Of course, there is a line between productive and obsessive.  But as long as the process of making things with Sak still involves laughter and ridiculous victory dances, I think we're okay. Hopefully.

That said and all, I have an unhealthy amount of half-finished projects lying about the house. Come on magic blog, help me finish them!
Cross-stitch Afro Gunsou.  Been sitting around for three years now.
Backside of a very fun crochet project.  Been working on for two years now
A bit over 1/14th of the way done! Yaay, rug!
An attempt at actual, normal, clothes for once.
This would be faster if I didn't have to buy one board of balsa wood at a time (40% off coupons *sigh*).
More sushi pillows. 
Do you have a lot of unfinished projects lying around too?

  1. The rug is coming along great! I don't have unfinished projects, but I have a ton I want to do that I haven't even started yet, so you are a step ahead of me :)

  2. I love how the rug is coming along!! I actually have a project that I purchased all but one item for and I need to get on the ball to get it finished (or really even started).

  3. I have a ton, mostly half (or less) done cross-stitches. I'd put them on hold when a friend was having a baby to work on their cross-stitch. But for some reason, even with only 3-6 weeks left before MY baby is here, I can't even finish my own!! I also have a crochet pillow case that's stuck, my scrapbooking has halted at November 2011, ughhh!! This baby is already putting a damper on my crafting! =)

    I LOVE how the rug is turning out!! And I'm curious what the crochet project is!

  5. oh.. I love seeing updates of the rug! I have an unhealthy number of incomplete projects too. It's an illness for me.

  6. you gotta figure that for the number of projects that you do finish (which are a lot judging from this blog), there are always going to be a few that linger for a bit. you're so creative! and the rug is shaping up wonderfully.

  7. I find unfinished projects to be so stressful... I literally put them in the guest room and shut the door. Good thing ST is so patient with me. I want to see the clothes you're making ;-)
