My friend Christine (a cyber-friend of many, many years) has come up with the most excellent philosophy for UFO (unfinished objects). This is one of the best justifications I've seen and I wanted to share it with you all.
If you bought the materials for the project because it made you excited and you enjoyed working on it -- then it was bought as entertainment.
If the entertainment factor is over before the project is completed, then the project is DONE. It served it's purpose. It's purpose wasn't to own a sweater, a completed stitchery or a quilt, it was ENTERTAINMENT.
So there should be no guilt in declaring it "DONE" and moving on to the next entertainment project.
Don't you just love this?
