I Just Couldn't Stop
Sometimes I get so excited about a project that I just can't seem to stop making whatever it is I'm making . . .like these little zipper pouches.
You can find a tutorial on how to sew these little clutches in my September post, Got Zippers? . They were inspired by similar ones pictured in the May 2014 issue of Country Living.
When I saw them in the magazine, I couldn't wait to start making some.
But then the project became addictive.
I started by sewing seven zippers together and, by the time I was done, had used 168. Each new color combination I thought up led to the construction of yet another little pouch.
Yesterday, after sewing 24 of theses babies, I began to hear a little voice in my head repeating,
"Put down the zippers. Step away from the sewing machine and put your hands in the air".
It just hit me that I had done it again: gotten totally carried away with a project.
Twenty-four zippered pouches? Really? What was I thinking?
Have you ever gotten carried away with a creative project?
How did you stop? Is there any hope for me?
