Why do I do this everytime!

So this is my two weeks worth of progress on Prairie Schooler chickens. I have made a good bit of progress, but do you know what I do when I am steaming along on a piece and coming this close to finishing? I suddenly lose all motivation to finish and every other WIP in my basket starts calling my name. So even though I only have some little chick wings to go on this one, and even though it would probably only take me two hours of stitching or less to actually finish this one I suspect it's just getting farther away from being done. One of my favorite things about spring here in the desert is stitching outside in the sunshine. I have been doing lots of that this week, it is so much easier on my eyes to have natural daylight. Also it's been so nice here all week, in the 70's during the day. I take our two parrots out on the back porch with me and love watching the wild lovebirds (tiny bright green parrots) come to their cage to visit. I had a few people ask on my last post what chart the chickens piece was from. It's the one on the left,"Village Green". I love how Prairie Schooler has so many different charts that coordinate so well with each other. I want to stitch the little chick ornament off of "Just Hatched" to go with my bigger finished piece.

Great progress on your PS piece. And you are so near completing. I balso love the two charts with the egg patterns, I stitched them all but have given them as gifts. It's time to stitch them for myself, too.

Great progress! And you're soooo close to finishing...I know you can do it! Sending you positive thoughts to get that finishing mojo working again. Good Luck and can't wait to see this one d-o-n-e :)

So cute!! Maybe you just need to make yourself stitch on it for 15 minutes each day and then reward yourself with working on something else. Then you'll still get it done in a week or so and will have started something new as well!! : )

Yes we have been lucky with our weather...I wish I had a simple answer...but maybe try to pick 2 projects and work alternately on them for the week and see how it goes.

I love it! If you can just force yourself to sit down & start working on it, you will be done in no time : )

Love this! Your chicks look great! I am sorta in the same boat as you with my motivation for a certain piece has become a pain in my side. Good luck! I am glad you are having nice weather. It's nothing but rain, rain, rain and clouds here, BAD for stitching! But I manage! =)
