After my last few posts about re-claiming and working on unfinished projects, I've heard from many of you out there in the craft community (online and otherwise) about how many unfinished projects are collecting dust underneath beds and behind closed doors. This seems to be a problem for most crafters in general. We often start something with lots of enthusiasm only to abandon it somewhere down the line because we run out of time, materials, or patience. Or there's an illness in the family or a crisis. Maybe a new baby. Sometimes we just loose motivation.
Well, here it is. The motivation part. As I was sipping my tea and staring off into space this morning I was thinking about that, and what it accomplished for me personally, and it inspired this challenge.
I'd like to suggest this June as Finish What You Have month. Find something that needs buttons, or stitches or stuffing or seam-ripping or whatever, and finish it. This can be *anything* you started over a month ago or twenty years ago that was abandoned and forgotten for some reason. Share what inspired you to start the project and what stopped you from finishing it if you desire. Finish one project or a dozen. Personally, I could take the challenge for the rest of the year and never run out of things to show and tell about! And I know I'm not the only one. Anyone else up for it?
