so many things to do...


I'm starting to think that I'm crazy. There are sooo many things that I'm wanting to work on, and there just isn't enough time, is there? I suppose that I simply need to be prepared to let things go that I WANT to get done. Especially when there are things that MUST get done. Which I do, sometimes.

This sense of a never-ending list of things that MUST get done is probably what inspired the classic list of chores and the days of the week that they should be done on: Monday: washing, Tuesday: ironing, Wednesday: mending, and so on. I've taken this list and made it into a collection of illustrations for embroidery patterns, and some type of planner pages or lists (still deciding there).

And so, tomorrow, Wednesday, I hope to do a bit of stitching on this. In redwork. I think that the traditional redwork combined with my silly creations will be nice.

Perhaps in the midst of this, I can get back to finding a rhythm in my days and weeks. That rhythm helps get things done and give peace of mind, doesn't it? Or maybe I'm kidding myself, and life will be all crazy and off until we reach the new year...Oh dear...I think I'm rambling. I better wrap this up.

Enjoy your Tuesday, dear friends! Oh, and thank you for all of the love in regards to the thread bobbins! It makes me happy to know that they are appreciated!


  1. Ha! I totally know the feeling! There are so many projects I want to do and crafts I want to try and skills I want to learn. If only we could give up the day job and dedicate every waking minute to crafting, creating and making! :)

  2. I am trying to find your Make Do Create Crazy Patterns with no luck, do you have a link at your shop? Thanks

  3. mycreativeyear: Oh, yes...quitting the day job. It's a goal...although, then the crafting may become like a job?
