Like nearly everyone else I know, I've got a ton of things going on. I have stash (yarn, fabric, thread, canvas). I have tools. I have books and magazines and free .pdf's printed out from various Web sites. I've even got various Web sites bookmarked. These are for the lists of, "Oh, I'd LOVE to make that!" items that everyone has.
I'm preparing this weekend for my annual culling of the stash, where I fish through and find things that are either "What was I thinking?" level or "I'll never get to that" level. They get priced, packaged, and sent to my LYS, where they're sold, and I get store credit. This year I'm going through the WIPs and UFOs too, to see what needs to be frogged and reassigned, or frogged and sent to the LYS. I'm sure there's a thing or two. And a couple I should finish.
In fact, there are many things I should finish. So here are my questions on this one for my crafty readers (the rest of y'all just won't get it):
- Are you one of those people who only has one project going at a time, and finishes that before starting something new?
- Do you have a time limit on WIPs before they get shifted in your mind to UFOs?
- Do you have a list of things you want to start? How do you prioritize that list? (Thank you to my favorite on-line yarn shop for the idea for that question.)
- Do you get the yarn/supplies (buttons, needles, hooks, beads, etc.) for those On The List items when they hit the list, or do you wait until you're ready to start work?
