Well, I've done it again. I start out in January with a list of all these fabulous ideas I want to sew or knit for Christmas and get excited just thinking that I have almost 12 months to get them done! Welllll....as we all can see, Christmas is only about 39 DAYS away and I did it again. I procrastinated most of the year and now I have those fabulous ideas swirling around in my head and no where to go! Now I have gotten some things done but not anywhere close to the ideas I had. Why do I do that every year?
So does anyone else feel like they "missed the boat" again this year when it comes to getting your holidays gifts made? I do have a good chunk of my shopping done and I usually am pretty good about getting a jump on that but it's the handmade gifts that I love to give each year that seem to get delayed. I can look at the many things I have made or knitted throughout the year but most of those have already been given away or used.
I may have to try a different strategy next year! I think I said that this year too but hey, I'm not a quitter......just a great procrastinator!!!!!
Quilting, knitting, sewing... any kind of craft. Couldn't possibly forget wool applique and embroidery either. And did I mention that I like to make purses, totes and organizer bags? That is what I love to do. My greatest joy is making things for my family and friends. I have been a crafter since I was a little girl. I would sit for hours and watch my Mom and Aunts knit, crochet, sew, tat and embroider. They would hand me baskets of scraps and I would sit on the porch and make clothes and blankets for my Barbie dolls. That was many, many years ago. My greatest joy will be when I am able to sit with my grandchildren and teach them all about the wonderful world of crafting!!
