25 Crafts of Christmas – Day 12

I suffer from a condition known in the crafting communities as Startitis.  There are people in the world who will finish one project before they start another.  And then there are some who will get distracted and start a new project, and then a new project, and then a new project.  People like me.

Sometimes I get so distracted that it takes me a while to go back to a project and finish it.  I started this sequin ornament way back in December 2011.  I also stopped working on it way back in December 2011.


So yeah, it’s taken me a while to get back to it.


It took me two thirds of Forrest Gump, but I’ve finished it.


It was really hard getting myself to stop actually.  There was always another tiny piece of polystyrene that needed covering up.  Teeny tiny specks.  But I enjoyed doing it.  It was soothing.  And I kept thinking of other ways to lay the sequins, or patterns that I could make.  I expect that in the New Year I’ll get some supplies and do some more.
