This morning we hit the first day of winter, one of the hardest frosts I have ever seen, the first time all three of my children slept in until 8am...and 30 days until our departure date!
Along with all the squealing and high-fiving going on this morning, I felt a bit of panic in my stomach. My goodness have I got a lot to do in a very short amount of time.
So I thought a to-do list. I know most organised people write lists, but I am not one of them so I didn't.
The first thing on that list is to finish all my crafty commitments, starting with The Hottie Challenge.
Details for the enormous crocheted flower raveled here. I made the actual hottie out of an old grey blanket and bound it in black. For future reference, perhaps I should have considered binding it all together before sewing on the chunky, impossible to get through the sewing machine, flower. Just a thought.
Ok, next on the list is my brooch swap brooch.
I have no idea where to start.
Is it weird that something is making me sift through lots of washers and fittings in Farmer Bren's shed in hope of inspiration?
So that's me for this afternoon. One challenge done, one swap, one test knit and one crochet test to go and then the serious business.
Whatever you do do not let me partake in any more swaps or pattern tests or any other bloggy fun until I have ticked off if not completed my mental caravan list (pun intended).
I hope this afternoon finds you organised and inspired.
Bye now. x
