Project Overview

How can I get anything done when I have so much going on! Lately when I unwind at night I've been opting to just sit and chill without my needles - gasp! I usually always have to be working on something, I must be going through a little burn out. Work has been so busy and hasn't left me with much, if any, creative mojo in the evenings to work on my projects.I have a lot of ideas, lot of babies to knit for not to mention things I'd like to knit (and sew) for me and now I'm starting to think about Christmas. I usually always knit Christmas gifts. I enjoy giving handmade Christmas gifts but not when I'm under a deadline for it. At the rate I'm going, forget about it… maybe this will be the year I don't make gifts. You never really know if people appreciate them anyways… you really have to be choosy as to who you knit for.

Maybe some day I'll have a monogamous relationship with my needles… ya right.

I haven't been knitting a ton lately either - mostly because when I get home from work, I'm so brain dead!

I think it's ok to go a year without making presents - it's hard work!

Hey! Your table looks like my table. I'm doing handmade gifts, but mostly sewing. It's faster.

wow... a lot of projects over there....
i know how you feel about knitting for people that appreciate it.
if you don't make your gifts, you can always buy handmade gifts....sometimes that is just as good! :)

sometimes you just need to vegetate - no needles, no nuthin - just relax and appreciate it for what it is - have a drink, then you have a glass in your hand, right? :) Your projects are a pile of lovely for what it is worth - and I am so with you - only the most specialist of peeps get a handmade anything. That is a short list!:)

Oh, I have days like that, when I can't decide what to work on next.

As nice as your sewing projects have been turning out, you should consider sewing gifts for some of the people on your list. Sewing projects seem to go a lot faster, at least they do for me.

I agree; do what makes you happy. I occasionally have to remind myself that I do this because I like it, not because I have to. And sewing projects do go so much more quickly. ;)

Our family started drawing names, so I get to focus on one person instead of 10.

OK Jill - Is that the LOVELY Blanket I see laying there? The one I spent over a hundred dollars trying to copy!! Of course I haven't started mine yet... It's nice to know that it's OK to have a bunch of projects going on at one time!! I have that problem. Do they every get finished??
