Now might be a good time to panic

I can see that I am going to run out of time if I don’t get my arse into gear and get some stuff done.  Christmas is approaching at the speed of a very fast speedy thing and I haven’t made a big enough dent on my to do list.  I managed to get some stitching on Nat’s cushion cover done last week but that is all.  Middle line is finished and top line is started.  This weekend coming I will be stitching and crafting like mad.

I have all the bits and bobs for the dreamcatcher so will look at this probably Sunday.

Have everything for all the candles so can get them made up Saturday morning.

Saturday and Sunday afternoon will be stitching.  We are going out Saturday night but I am hopeful that I can complete the cushion cover.

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
