On my beading desk there's a box full of sketches and notes, and on top of the notes there's a large ziploc bag containing those things that I absolutely completely most urgently have to finish right away so that when I sit down to bead, I will definitely work on those before anything else.
And sometimes I do.
Sometimes though I change my mind or a deadline comes and goes or I need those beads for something else, so the contents of the bag are somewhat fluid - at least the top layers. There's stuff in the bottom that's been there for years.
I did finish this necklace, and even made a pair of earrings to match, because some people like it that way.
Not by a long shot.
