|When you have some time (a good amount is at least 2.5 or 3 hours), cut and mark (ONLY) easy "needables". Needables being a pair of shorts, capri's or any easy whatever. Mark them and put them in a pile in your room or sewing area. Your pile should be 6 garments/items or less! (I have 6 ready to go.) Now, when you have some time to kill, sit and sew what is cut out and ready. You will actually be sewing with the "Icky part already behind you!" . Remember to cut and mark ONLY things that you crave. Make sure the pattern is easy or fast and use a GREAT fabric. Theses important elements will keep your "mojo" high and the pile will disappear. You will have so many new things to wear not to mention feeling great because of your accomplishments.
When I have to "kill a cut pile" I won't fabric or pattern shop until the pile is gone - thus eliminating a MAJOR distraction.
For those convoluted patterns, cut, mark and work on those all at once - it's the only way to get em done. (LOL!) Good luck!
