I Studied the I-Ching for years and still consult it occasionally. I think it's appropriate that you left that one unfinished like the changing lines that inspired it.
I need to know how you hide your tie-offs.
I really enjoyed listening and watching while you stitched.

I am going to agree with BlancheNoE and think its very fitting that you left the I Ching Cape unfinished...
Usually because of my compulsiveness, once I start something I have a hard time stopping until it is finished. However, I have this one oil painting that I started of King Tutankhamun, being very meticulous to have it look like a photograph, it gave me a headache and I had to stop.

lately some tasks just don't seem as important as when I first started them.

Enjoyed the quilting.

I agree that it is not a good thing to leave a quilt unfinished. For the reasons you named, but also because I love functional art forms--objects that have use as well as beauty. To me, those items are not truly finished until they are imbued with the warmth of human touch and use, and it is the use of them that brings them into a state of constant change.

Speaking of time again, Tree, I'm wondering what you do when the video camera is turned off. Do you work in silence, talk to friends on speaker phone, listen to music? When I'm lost in a task of labor, I listen to music. In fact, I would call it very deep listening to music. I can somehow give it a level of attention I never can unless my hands are busy.
