I'm making my list and checking it twice this week, making sure everything I need to do before Christmas is on the itinerary. Christmas is two weeks from tomorrow, and my goal of giving something handmade to everyone on my list is attempting to become a reality. Seriously, I should have started on this endeavor in July. But that's beside the point.
I've got goals and deadlines, all to be met before the end of next week! Here's what I need to complete this weekend: 2 sewing projects I've already started and 2 yarn projects (should be pretty quick). I'm on the highway to productivity this weekend, whoohoo! Then next week, I have two more yarn projects to start and finish, but I'm still waiting on supplies to arrive from here, so they'll have to wait. The other day my right index finger started hurting, so I'm just praying that my hands will be able to work like little elves in the next week and then I will give them a much needed break.
I saw this blog post today, and I loved it, thought it was a riot, and think everyone who has a sense of humor should read it. My favorite line would have to be: "If you think your hot-ness is more important than your country, Lisa, keep up the pre-Christmas diet. Help put thousands, nay millions of our fellow Americans out of work." Just read it.
DIY Time: Fabric-Covered Thumbtacks! These do not require sewing either, so it's a relatively quick project.
