No Patience for Fiddly Bits Today

I keep starting projects today but I find I just can’t focus enough to finish them. For example:

  • I have 3″ of 8″ of a chain maille bracelet (custom order) done which was hours of frustration. And now, I find after getting the first three inches done, I cannot for the life of me get it to work any further. It keeps just not laying right when I add the next section to it. Seriously, it’s like the pattern suddenly doesn’t work and I’m tired of fiddling with it.

  • I’m working on a new pair of Bali-inspired Gold Vermeil and Peridot Earrings…and I have one done but I’m getting annoyed at the fiddly bits of wrapping the tiny, tiny wire around itself to make the dangle. So one is done but ugh I just can’t bring myself to face dealing with the second right now.

  • I painted a wooden box to make another Harry Potter Trinket Box on custom order for someone…but I just do not feel like dealing with the fussiness of getting the paper cut just so to get it covered as seamlessly as possible. It’s just really fiddly and requires me to really pay attention and I just don’t have it in me.

  • I started another blog entry today going on about some of Love’s on-going medical issues but I found I just didn’t feel like going through all the details so I wound up saving it as a draft instead.

I think what this all boils down to is that I just have no patience or tolerance of detail work today. I just can’t focus enough on things to get them properly done. I’m just kinda irritable and annoyed at everything today because none of it seems to want to go to plan. (I even had to make a major substitution with dinner tonight when the first ingredient item refused to cooperate.)

In other words…even though it’s a Tuesday, it’s been a Monday sorta day. I think I’m going to give up and try again tomorrow. Maybe I’ll find my motivation and focus then instead because it sure as Hell ain’t here tonight.
