Does anyone else find these acronyms confusing - there are so many around these days my poor fuddled brain can't always cope!
In this case I'm talking about Work in Progress and UnFinished Object. I'm wondering when the former turns into the latter. How long does a work in progress need to sit around before it becomes an unfinished project that may never be picked up again.
I've quite a few sitting around. Firstly a half made scarf on the loom.
I got part way through and realised I didn't like it so folded the loom up and put it away and got on with other things. Now I'm thinking I may never weave again on that loom unless I decide to cut my losses and cut it off the loom. Such a waste of wool I think but actually a worse waste of a loom if I hide it away and don't use it! Part of me still thinks I should just get it finished...
Then there is the rug sitting in a carrier bag behind the couch. I've not done much but like the scarf I've 'gone off' the fabric I used for most of what I have done. I know I should throw it out and start again with fabric I like better. Part of the problem was that the fabric frayed so badly that every time I worked on the rug everything around including myself ended up covered in bits that clung stubbornly to my clothing, the couch and the carpet. At this point there should be a photo of said partly made rug but I can't find it!
There is a fair amount of jewellery that I made early on in my jewellery making enterprise and which needs taking apart and remaking - or just taking apart so the beads can be used for something else or sold on.
Then there are various little pots and bags with polymer clay projects that are either waiting to be finished off and made into jewellery or - well, just sitting around because they didn't come out quite as planned.
I will probably finish most of these off someday but I'm not sure about the pink beads, basically I don't really like them so I'll leave them sitting for now.
