Many WIPS remain WIPS simply because, they just take too much or too little brain power/set up for my available stitching times. Are you a crafter and parent of small children? I have a theory that makers with small children need projects that are simpler just because so much brain power and energy goes into the day to day of taking care of young ones. There is also a factor of time for set up and pick up. You want something for you, but there is only so much you can put into it. This has been great for keeping my hands busy while my brain is engaged keeping the kids busy. If you are curious, the browns are growing on me again. Do your experiences support my theory or are you just the opposite looking for complicated projects?
