Unfinished business!


I have so many things unfinished at the moment. Unfinished projects, unfinished reading etc etc. So today I declare the rest of the week to be , 'Finishing Off' week'!
By the end of the week, it'll be me that'll be finished off, that's for sure.
Anyway...
Task one, my clipboards. I am loving making these but they still need finishing touches.
As do my paper bag albums!
Then there are the altered tins!
My calico bag..which has taken two craft mornings plus today's session will be three and I am nowhere near finished...(my mum is romping ahead with hers! I've had to find another one for her to start as I know that she will arrive today with a finished article. )
And if that isn't enough, there are these breathing down my neck, cracking the whip, as if to say, 'For goodness sake get a move on.'

And the mess and the muddle!! Especially my work desk.I daren't show you all of it!

Here I am, dancing around my desk, taking a quick breather!

Is anyone else the same? Too many unfinished tasks?

Oh yes, so many that it becomes a bit daunting. Which to finish first? I actually threw a cople away the other day. Sigh...

Looks like someone will be busy this week!! I don't have unfinshed things more like unstarted...I have lots of ideas but don't get round to doing anything. Maybe I spent too much time on here xx

I couldn't agree more with you Sal.. I have an ongoing list.. ongoing for the last six months, of jobs that have to be finished. My problem is distraction.. I am so easily distracted and then never seem to complete anything..
I am totally distracted by your lovely vintage Janet & John books and your fab clipboards.
You are doing a grand job Sal.. finished or unfinished!

Too many unfinished tasks around here, to count on one hand. You have been so busy Sal, I presume lots of these lovely colourful makes are for the bloggers fair in November? I hope you get to sort all unfinished business by the end of the week, quite a task! x

My list of 'to-dos' is horrendous. It's quite depressing if I look at it for too long. So I avoid it.

Love those clipboards - just fab. x

When I get stressed about finishing jbs - and as a teacher there are tons!!! I think of this - you can't eat an elephant all at once but you can if you chop it into managable bits! (Poor nelly)get chopping up that elephant sweetie!! Then I really must try and take my own advice!
love and hugs H

Yep, I have hundreds of unfinished tasks and stuff to go on the to-do list.

You are very artistic, your work is lovely.

OH SAL! These things are GORGEOUS!!!!
You clever thing!
I have a dining room table of "to do's"! My husband is arty too so he has a little corner so not ALL mine...
Anyway, hope you are OK?
I have tagged you on my blog and written 7 things about me on it... take a read, someone did it to me and I think its a bit of fun!
Have a good week and keep up the "gorgeousness"

Oh yes, I have many unfinished things. The trouble is I keep seeing different tutorials or buy new craft books and I want to make them all. There's never enough hours in the day! All your bits and pieces look wonderful especially the clipboards.

You will feel so pleased with yourself when you get things done. Busy busy busy though don't forget to put your feet up now and then.

You look as if you are well under control compared to me. You're so talented - I love the things you've made.
You put me to shame, honestly. I must go tidy up and finish all my unfinished projects soon!

funkymonkey said...

I love the calico bag. I think you could go into production with them.

She'sSewPretty said...

Oh! Some one who is in the same shape as me! I thought I was the only one. I've got projects every where. Maybe I should call next week Finishing Off week too! Your projects are really cute too!

If I counted up all the unfinished tasks throughout my life I think I'd be in the Guinness Book of Records!!! These days I don't even get time to start them, let alone think about finishing them!!

Just caught up with some of your lovely posts - see! I haven't even had time to start reading them until today!!!!!
