    Are you a process person or a project person, or somewhere in the middle?

    I am a process person. I LOVE breaking the quilting prep into all the individual steps and then I check them off as I go. I don't really care if the project gets finished as longf as I enjoy the process (which is why I generally work towards committed dates or events).

    My girl friend is a project person. Her goal is being DONE and she may even skip the fine detail in the prep work just to get to the finish line.

    How about you?

    Process, and so much so that getting done at all is a challenge! But the process is fun!

    I am a project person. Like a lot of other things in my life I do the process part on automatic pilot so I can get to the parts I like the most.
    As a child my siblings, who were all boys and I used to fight nightly over who did the dishes etc. Now when it comes to necessary chores I just do it. Obsessing over the less interesting details only takes the pleasure out of the finished product.

    I am a project person! I get bored with the necessary parts and start to procrastinate-play computer games when I should be working!!
    I am always excited when I get done and get to see the finished project in my case a hotpad or keychain or checkbook cover. I love to see that what I had envisioned has come to life. But the tedious steps I struggle with!

    I love the process. I enjoy every step of it. But, I do love to have a project done and move to a new one. (or finish a past one)

    I'm a process person. Sometimes I feel let down when I finish. Cause then I have to plan another. It's like now what??

    Definitely a Process Person. I love the shopping, the color coordinating, the cutting, the measuring, the sewing, the quilting. Especially the shopping. :O)

    help me decide!
    I like the process, or I wouldn't try to make quilts ... on the other hand, I can never get enough projects to try to make myself produce more.

    It looks to me like I am a process person ... or maybe I am just the hunter/gatherer type who likes to get the stuff in case I ever get time to work on the projects and the process.

    I guess I should have added that as a third option, lol. Yes, I know the hunting and gathering well, as my rather substatial stash suggests.

    The good news there: we will never be cold!
