Year of the PIGS - Why, Why, Why????

I'm a little late responding to the Year of the PIGS question from last week.  The question is WHY do you have PIGS and UFOs?  Boy, is this a loaded question.

The main reason I have UFOs is because:

a)  I have Quilter's ADD and get sidetracked by another project,
b)  I get to a part of the project where the piecing becomes tedious/putzy (and I get lazy); and/or
c)  My project is ready to be quilted and that's my least favorite part of quilting.

The reason I have PIGS is a little more difficult to answer but usually it's because I am already working on something when the kit or idea comes.  Then by the time that WIP is done (or to the flimsie stage), I have another project/kit that I want to start.  Another reason, there are only so many hours in the day and unfortunately, not enough of it is devoted to sewing; especially now that I've learned to knit.  Now that I have slowed WAY down on buying kits, I'm hoping I can get some of them turned into finishes or, at the very least, UFOs.

That's it.  I've spilled my guts.  What's your reason?

It seems like we all have the same reasons. :)
