I concede temporary defeat

I will not get the snowmen done for the holiday. But I am OK with that. I was setting a high goal for myself. I have too much to do over the next 4 days. I finished decorating the tree last night, and gathered together my presents to wrap, now I have to take them to SOs house and wrap. Then tomorrow is work (BTW, they extended the show another freaking week--I am all for success, just starting to think we are going to have this show forever, and I really do need some time off next month.) And Sunday, do the grocery shopping.

I have been pondering my goals for 2008. I do have some. My New Year's Day start is going to be the Stoney Creek Winter Bellpull. I've had the supplies for almost a year, and I saw this at CATS, so it's time to start it. I want to finish 10 UFOs and WIPs, and keep working on the 50 list. I want to finish the 50 list this year--this is asking a lot, but I can try.

Otherwise, stitchy related, but not stitching, I want to win Best of Show at the county fair. I found a really beautiful Hardanger design in the newest New Stitches, and I am going to try to get that done. It's a fall design of acorns, not HARD really. Hardanger looks a lot harder than it is, so this should be fun. I also want to get rid of the unwanted stash I have. Whatever I can't sell is going to be given away at the Sue Hillis GTG on Memorial Day Weekend. I can't have all this stuff. And, as part of my general financial redirection, I will cut down on the amount of stash I buy. I really do have a lot of stitching treasures that need to be done, and keeping adding to the pile lessens the chance of them getting done.

As long as you're okay with it, that's all that matters :o)

Cut down on stash???? Are you sure ;o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
