|LHN’s Robin Hood|
While going round on my usual blogs Dani at Dani:Black Belt Stitching Wizard was blogging about how she sets out her monthly goals for her stitching and just for herself really, no pressure no hassle if they are not met, just goals to aim towards in the month and I thought what a good idea this was, as I have so much on this year, or at least planned I thought this might help break it down into more sizeable goals so here goes….
- Start 15 crazy challenge pieces.
- Stitch Ruairi’s birthday present.
- Make a start on my SAL pieces mainly the CCN cottages, the Elizabeth Hancock Sampler and Prarie Schooler ABC’s
- Knit 4 dishcloths
- Stitch a small ornament
- Finish my One Row Lace scarf and start another scarf for an Xmas present.
This is the bulk of what I want to aim for. I’ll be back at the start of February with a review of what I accomplished and goals for February..
I’ve had a few ask how I get the time to do so much, I’ve no magic solution nor do my leprechauns give me extra hours in the day..boy would I love that, my days start at around 6am and with a good routine in place…I simply cannot survive without one and the household would quite literally grind to a halt without it… I get jobs done mainly in the morning and as I’m doing one task my brain has moved onto the next and the others to be done… I mostly fit in anywhere from 4-6 hours crafting and I divide that between knitting and stitching, depending on what takes my fancy, what needs doing and my level of tiredness, knitting is easier for me when I’m tired. The bulk of my crafting time is done when the little ones are in bed but its not unusual for them to be sat on my knee while stitching or knitting during the day… Ruairi likes to unwind the wool as I knit…mainly into a knot…Elizabeth sits on my knee while I’m stitching and Benjamin curls up beside me if his favourite tv programme is on lol, this doesn’t happen everyday though unfortunately. So you see no magic power just really a hefty routine, its always a routine..lol
Time for bed now I think…morning is calling..
