I'm a little prone to this too and have a half finished dress myself Happy I find the swaps help keep me focused and get me finishing things. Also I find having a couple of things on the go helps. You can have a break when you get board and do a bit more on something else. Also I sometimes make myself sit down for 30 mins and sew a bit on the dress. I figure if I do this enough it will get finished - every bit helps.

i have AT LEAST half a dozen plush waiting for faces.. some reason by the time i have finished sewing and stuffing i am not excited to put a face on.....
i like rabbit rabbi's advise- about remembering why you were excite to start the project in the first place

This happens to me a lot too, but not when I'm working on clothes. It's usually when I'm writing. For some reason I'll have this tremendous writers block. I hate it!

I'm the same, I've got so many black sacks full of clothing and get excited at the prospect of making something... and I've got two t-shirts to make a tux t-shirt thats on here and netting to make a tutu, but not the get up and go to actually make them...
