My November stitchy/crafty goals..

Just a quick post. I feel the need to write down a list. I am really a list kind of gal. It has got to the point where I have so much stuff to do that I do need to make a list to keep track of it all. Since going back to work, things have definitely gone by the wayside and stitching and crafting has slipped into the sidelines. However, that said, I do try to make a determined effort to keep going with it even if it is just a little bit of stitching and crafting to keep my finger in so to speak.

Now, I seem to have taken on a few things that have turned up the heat and the pressure is on so here's my list of things that I need to do. This might not seem very much to some but what with work and children and a husband to boot... well let's just say, it all adds up.

Stitching commitments:
  1. Stitch Tracy's ornie  done
  2. Finish Tracy's ornie.
  3. Stitch Tina's ornie.
  4. Finish Tina's ornie.
  5. Finish Love Quilts square.
  6. Stitch 2nd CCN ornie.
  7. Finish page 1 on A Quaker Christmas.
  8. Stitch and finish an ornie for dd and ds.

Crochet commitments:

  1. Make more tissue box holders for school fair.
  2. Make jar cosies for school fair
  3. Finish white baby blanket for City Hearts.
  4. Make pink baby stripe blanket for City Hearts.
  5. Make mum potholders.
  6. Crochet lily Katniss Cowl

I may well add to this list but at least it is up here now and I can use it as a tick list to mark things off and feel like I am making some sort of progress.

Does anyone else have a lot of commitments right now? Please share if you do and we can help spur each other on.

Till next time. Happy stitching.  xxxxxxx

That's quite a 'To Do' list you have there! I'd love to see some of your tissue box holders when they're finished - I keep meaning to make some to cover ours and need the inspiration. Have fun with the list.x

Lists are great! Now I need to make one too for the holidays:) I noticed that when I write things done they get done!
You already got to mark off one item - Good job! love Annette

Margaret said...

Good luck with your list. I love lists and make one most days as well as having long term lists.

Good for you getting so organized. I DO think this is a lot for this short amount of time left before Christmas. I hope you find bits of time to work away at your list!

Very organised. I'm not making a list because I'd scare myself ;)

Yes since returning to work my stitching has taken a back seat, but I am really loving crochet at the moment, good on you for making a list, I hope it helps you. I am rubbish at keeping to things, I just go with the flow at the moment. Looking forward to seeing some finished pics when you have done. xx
