Right now I have about five projects going, though, and that's too many. It's just making me nuts. This is not the first time this has happened; I seem to be a slow learner regarding where exactly the sweet spot is for me. Sigh. But we all know the siren call of the new idea, the seductive thrill of beginning something new that will be the most exciting thing ever, right?
Here's what's in progress at the moment:
1. On the floor loom, two Tencel twill scarves, in belated fulfillment of an order from my very patient sister-in-law
2A. On the PVC tapestry loom, I'm sampling colors and weave patterns for my next big Mary tapestry.

4. And then there's the bed quilt I started a year ago, inspired by Turkish tiles and meant to coordinate with the Turkish rug on the floor in our bedroom. I thought I couldn't tolerate the way the current quilt clashed with the rug, but apparently I can. Admittedly, this is a project I work on very intermittently. I'm still appliqueing the right side panel. Next steps will be to do the applique border along the top and to seam all the panels together.
5. And you already know about the tapestry diary from last week's post. This is a no-stress project, only requiring 15-30 minutes per day. So it hardly counts in terms of adding to my self-imposed project stress.
My son would say at this juncture, "First world problem, Mom." And he's right. I am a very lucky woman to have the time and resources to do this work.
