17 Days to Christmas...

With only 17 days left to Christmas, I am getting a bit nervous...okay, outright SCARED might be more exact...that I won't get everything finished!  It doesn't help that I keep adding projects!

I have a set of turtles to stuff and sew together, Christmas trees to finish, more turtles to make, hats to make, blankets to make/finish, and I don't even know what else right now.  The list doesn't seem to get shorter, only longer.  Of course, it doesn't help any that I keep cruising the internet and getting new ideas for projects; projects that I want to do NOW!  I still have my end of the year resolution, to finish 2011 with all of my current projects finished.  I know, lofty expectations, but...

For 2012, I think my goal will be to conquer tapestry crochet.  I have only tried it once, and I lost count of where I was... I wasn't paying enough attention, and I wasn't making notes as to where I was in the pattern.  I would like to complete a blanket in tapestry crochet before the end of 2012.

Also in 2012, I think I will branch out into pattern writing...at least for myself.  I have a habit of making things as I go along, and they end up being really cute or functional.  But then when I go to make it again, I have no idea what I did the first time, so...

Okay, time to get back to all those Christmas projects...
