Short Attention Span Crafting

Today's smoothie:

Kale and red leaf lettuce loosely packed to top of blender
2 cups water
1 cup frozen cherries

Kept it simple today.

You may notice I never use bananas. That's because I don't like them. Their texture creeps me out and they tend to give me a upset stomach. They may do magical things to smoothies but I'll get my potassium from avocados thank you very much.

On the creative front:

I swatched for my Ravelympics sweater and hit perfect gauge on the first try! Hitting gauge on the first attempt is good luck. Remind me I said that when I'm teaching my children new words on the day the torch goes out.

I'm working on a pair of yoga socks because my yoga classroom is always freezing. I don't mind exercising in the cold, but my feet have been cramping.

For some reason that escapes me, I purchased this Santa car kit on clearance. I'm not crazy about cutesy things like this but my kiddos liked it. I figure if I work one piece a day, it will be finished by next Christmas.

This needlepoint kit came to me about 7 years ago. I figure if I embroider one strand a day it will get finished. Sound logic in theory.

Which is more productive? Doing a little bit on several projects or just doing one project through to completion?

For me, it depends on my...

...ooh look, something shiny.


  1. I can't work on any one thing straight through to completion - I fall asleep before that. ;) I have to have 3-4 projects going, just to keep my attention! LOL

    I'm going to miss the Olympics without a TV this year. *sigh*

  3. I like bananas, but I don't like them IN stuff. Their taste permeates everything and no matter what else is in it, it still tastes like banana.

    I usually have three or four projects going at once. Gotta have one or two that are portable, one on the computer, one that's a sit-down-for-two-hours type thing, one that's a pick-up-for-five-minutes thing. Plus, yeah, the creative attention span can only handle so much.
