Christmas is coming . . . and I just realised I am going to run out of time

Second post today but this is more of a list.  What I need to get done before Christmas or it will suck big time.  I might run this as a weekly below my usual blog.

  1. Kayla: Elephant cushion – Realisticly this needs to be goal one as I really need this to be done and wrapped before October 23 when she moves home.  She doesn’t usually pay that much attention to what I am stitching but Murphy’s law says this would be that one time.
  2. Levi: Photo of him with Nana Fay – Must track down a decent photo first up.
  3. Jordyn: Dream catcher – Not started
  4. Veronica: No idea – Must come up with something.
  5. Natalie: Scary Movie cushion – Not started.  She also wants a small stitch for her favourite band – Also not started.
  6. Ralph: Stencil art? – Find something
  7. Jamie: Photo with beach boarder – Photo printed, frame picked, board being cut.  Have scavanged some shells and stuff so this one might even be done and dusted this weekend.  We live in hope
  8. Dianne: Not a clue – must come up with something. Hot chocolate/sundae basket?
  9. Lunam Family Christmas: Need to make 4 things for the secret santa. Dragon cushion – Not started. Dream catcher – Not started.  Spice mix basket – Have jars.  4th gift – Not a clue yet. Stencil art?
  10. Dad & Siblings: Memory stick of Great Grandad’s war diary’s and postcards – Have 6 memory sticks, just need to scan the stuff. Individual boxes with quick note inside to explain what is on the stick.
  11. Tash: Cross stitch photo – Finish it! Not going to happen I feel but worth a shot.
  12. Marie – Hmmmm
  13. Margaret – Hmmmm

Oh crud.  I really need to get started.

Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D
