I’ve been pondering the act of finishing or completing a piece of work.
Generally I think this act needs commitment and I have little capacity for commitment, at least where my work is concerned. I have to dash things off quickly or I take too long, get too involved and then can’t see when something might be finished.
For the first exchange I tricked myself with a process. I unpicked a box and learnt how to make it in cloth. I got caught up in the folds and thinking about exchanging skills, made the instructions part of the work. Then I put it in a drawer and forgot about it til the deadline.
