I don’t like to think of myself as a “crafter.” My crafts are mostly done for their utility rather than for aesthetic reasons (though if I’m going to make something it’s going to be made well). That said, I’ve got what I like to think of as “crafter’s ADD.” I’ve never been able to pick a project and stick with it exclusively until completion. As an example, while I was making Madeline’s flower girl dress (something that should have taken a couple of days) I also made 4 seat cushions, and altered 2 dresses and a pair of pants for other family members.
I currently have 5-6 projects in some level of doneness, and another 10-12 that I’ve got all the supplies for but haven’t started yet. I’ve recently re-started a project that I began probably 15 years ago. I made it a goal to stick with it and finish it uninterrupted. I’ve only made a pair of mittens and a scarf since I started. I’m impressed with my restraint.
