Yeah! Medium grey finished and onto the light grey. This shade is going to be a workhorse of the pattern, filling lots of the currently empty spaces. I have been looking forward to the relaxing feeling of "filling in".
I was thinking today about the effect restricting my sewing to a set day and time has had on the way I approach it. I look forward to that time, I am eager to work on the pattern and see how much it will grow. Now this is on a pattern that I would not say is exactly to my taste, it just happened to be there.
Contrast that with a project that I bought because I like the image, that I want to do but took me ages to start for just that reason, it was for me. I had thought making it the item for the IHSW I would make progress working on it at least once a month. That has not worked, I wonder if I told myself I was only allowed to work on it once a month rather than I should it would make any
difference to how much actually gets done?( link to my last update on that much delayed project)
I have a friend who has hit a similar sticking point with just a section of background (sand) on a long team project. My job has been regular "is it done yet" questioning (oh and washing it once as a mark had produced, why bother finishing feelings, the mark came out) anyway I wonder if an approach of you can only work on it when or for restriction would work any better.
