But that is pretty much where I stopped. The plan was to create about 8 different things and package them all up prettily and have all, bar one, done by the start of December so I didn't have the stress and rush that the old housemate and I had last year when we decided to hand make a load of gifts and didn't really give ourselves enough time.
Well, as it stands I have two gifts finished, and another is half made, but nowhere near ‘done’, the craft room/dressing room/junk room is a mess of bits of twine and scraps of fabric and I am fast running out of time to get them completed by ‘fake christmas’ at the boy’s family in a few weeks.
Plus I still have a crafting afternoon to host, a baby gift to make for my friend Sammy, and the Pretty package exchange to do. What with a few weekends away planned in and my evenings quickly filling up, I think it might be time to re-evaluate the plans I had and scale back slightly.
And I haven’t even started thinking about bought Christmas gifts, decorating a tree, or the boys birthday at the start of January! Yikes.
