When you take out an old unfinished project to work on and have no idea what you were thinking. Why is my kirtle neckline rounded? I know I cut half sleeves for it but I have no idea where they have gone. I stitched around the edges of the interlining that is fraying like mad but why didn’t I overlock it?

Lol! Maybe it was for a 15th century kirtle?

I can never decide if Past Me is a jackass or Future Me is a dummy when those situations arise...

Good luck figuring it out.

I have crates of unfinished projects and many of them come with a list of similar types of questions.

I need to leave instructions sheets too - but if I had the time/mental-energy to write them, I'd have had time/mental-energy to finish the project instead of abandoning it....

I've experienced sewing memory loss as well. You have to actually stop and think what you were contemplating at the time.
