I’ve been working at sorting things out. Not physically. The other way. What to do, how to do it.  My main problem is focus – or lack of it. Too many things that I want to do, at any given time. Its always been that way, only now it seems worse.( I guess I could blame it on adult ADD or something, but that would get me nowhere. )Sewing – always – but what?

When they do, its amazing" It hit home for me. I see things that people make, and am awed, and always wonder it that all they do? How did they come to make such a stunning __________ without dabbling in a variety of other things along the way?

All of the things I make, I like the doing. But I really love the creating part, the choosing. I get so infatuated by the new project ; I lust over the ideas, variations, and then the new ideas that come from those. I have a hard time even imagining channeling all of my creative energy in only one direction. Focus. Focus. Any ideas as to how to achieve this focus would be appreciated.

While I work on figuring things out, we’re catching up on house projects that need doing. And of course it’s several things at once.
focus, Renee, focus.

I joined facebook, and  feel somewhat odd about it. Then, I happened on this amusing article.
