Which Is Better?

In my last post I said that I was getting tired of the ornaments, but had no desire to stitch on the two projects in my stitching bag, which left me with the option of rooting through my stash looking for something new to work on. Something that shouts to me that it needs to be taken out of the closet and worked on. I got alot of comments from people telling me that starting something new is great fun, which I agree with, and how much fun it is to look through stash to see what could be the next project of the day.

But then, while I was cleaning up the den I took out the HAED piece and looked at where I was on that and somehow, that piece was the one that started calling the loudest. I spent Friday afternoon while the kids were at school and all day Saturday stitching on those pandas. I haven't had a day like that in a long time. With young kids it is hard to be able to do that, but somehow on Saturday all of the stars were in alignment and I got in a good stitching day. Or maybe it's just that my kids are getting bigger and more self sufficient.

This change in my decision got me to thinking which do you think is better: starting something new, or making some great progress in a WIP that has been sitting in your stitching bag? All opinions are welcome, so please leave a comment and let me know what you think!

I think both are extremely entertaining, and what I choose to do depends entirely on my mood.
Seems every time I decide to finish off "some" of the stash which is stored ever so neatly just screamming out for survival, I manage to finish off one or two, but along the way, I find something new and there I go. I really think that sellection is one of the luckiest options we hold in life and judging from most of our stash we, the stitcher in life are the luckiest people in the world and have the nicest friends to share our times with.
Be always in stitches.

That's a tough one. I kind of go where the mood takes me. I try to put in time on my WIPs, but then I always go to one or two new ones, and then hopefully back to a WIP.
