I have read that some scientists believe there really is no such thing as multitasking, but remain on a personal quest to prove otherwise. Occassionally I envy quilters who stick tenaciously to one project from start to finish.But my mind wanders, and I travel regularly between various exploits. I may seek variety, akin to a snowbird heading to warmer climates in the winter. More often, like an explorer heading off to scale Mount Cotopaxi or study the beehive tombs in Atreus, a compelling new idea sneaks in and I am driven to pursue it. If only these travels earned frequent flyer miles.
Perhaps I need an air traffic controller to help me sort through these endeavors and get them all safely launched or landed! I am having trouble deciding at what point a WIP (work in progress) becomes a UFO (unfinished object.) And if I start back to work on a UFO, is it once again a WIP? When does a glimmer of an idea actually become a WIP? With a drawing or plan, the purchase of fabric, actual cutting or sewing?Step up to the flight counter, all you readers, and declare your current UFO or WIP status! How do you decide when a WIP becomes grounded and delegated to UFO status? Is there a smooth operation at your quilting airport? And where can I find a good air traffic controller?
