Procrastination

It has become the bane of my existence!

I am terrible about putting things off until they are so overwhelming that I can hardly handle it.  I have not quilted in at least 2 months and I now have so many quilts to quilt that I am just overwhelmed at the sheer number of them - over 20.  I need to get going, but I can't seem to get motivated.  

Sometimes I put things off because I imagine them to be hard and I avoid them.  Then when I finally get around to doing them I have built up their difficulty so much that I am afraid of them.  Only to find out that the difficulty was all in my mind.

Sometimes I put them off because I am overly ambitious about what I want to do with them and I don't think I am good enough.

Sometimes I put things off because I am just not in the mood.  I figure if I am not in the mood that I won't do a good job, so I put it off.

I need to just get over it !

I feel your pain! I am the very same way. I have the idea sometimes that a quilt looks better BEFORE I quilt it!

But we know we need to get that pile going.

When I get back from QuiltCon......yes, when I get back.
