I always seem to get stuck when I am ready to start a new hooking project. I'm generally OK once I get going, but getting started is often a long and painful process.
I'm an over-thinker! Its been over a week (maybe even closer to 2 weeks) since I finished the first long pillow. And as soon as I finished it I found a complimentary pattern, so I would have a pair.
The second I saw this pattern I knew they would work together and I would use the same wools/colors for both pillows. Easy right?? A perfect well planned approach right??
So what happened?? Well, I started thinking! I should have known better. LOL
Should I use just the same colors?
Should I add some complimentary shades for variety?
Will I mix the colors and shades to make a more abstract image?
Or do I stay within my comfort area and hook it with the original colors and no attempts at funky-ness?
But if I always shy away from trying to hook more abstract, how will I ever learn?
SEE, this is how my mind works!!! Around and around and around......no wonder I'm tired all the time ---- I wear myself out with all this foolishness.
So I end up getting stuck and not starting. The pattern and the bag of wool is next to me - mocking me. Sooooooo, I thought if I posted this it might shame me into getting my a$$ in gear and starting.
Just Do It
