Sticking my head out of the hole.... :)

With all of the family stuff,order stuff,swap stuff and pattern stuff it seems like there maybe a light at the end of the tunnel.I have a huge batch of stuff to send out tomarrow and I sent out a huge batch yesterday.Unfortunately Iam not organized enough to take pictures of the packages before the head to the post office like some people are. Iam always amazed at those pictures.I see lots of things I would like to take pictures of but never feel like I have the time to stop and do it.I think the running theme thru out my blog haas been trying to keep up. I decided that after I get this stuff caught up and the patterns in the shop Iam going to take some time and sew for my house and spend alot of time in front of the fan reading.I have so many embroidery patterns backed up to get ready for the shop that Iam almost afraid to sit down with pencil and paper because they just keep coming. someday i will hope for that to happen but not now. Iam sure the never enough time is common among crafters,bloggers,flickr 'ers but I've realized that I spend alot of time feeling bad for not getting things done and out and I hate that feeling of letting people down. I will be doing something and look up and the post office is closed. holy heck it feels like I just had breakfast.i have decided after this last batch of mushrooms that I absolutely cannot make another one.I have too many new things I want to try.But I do have a pattern that Iam trying to write the instructions for. I have such a hard time with that. I dont read instructions,I eyeball it and then try it on my own.Sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt.So anyhooo I am going back to the hole,too bad its not the rabbit hole! lol

She is the cutest!!! Lovin' the hat! I hear you on the "catching up" portion of life. Sometimes I feel so swamped that I end up getting nothing done. How does that happen?! Oh well, there's always tomorrow!!

I love your new plush or plushette :) She is just precious.

I know what you mean about swaps. I am starting work on one tonight and then must complete two more. I am awful about taking pictures and when I do it's in a rush!

I can relate to the not being organized, letting people down, ready to move on to the next idea things you mentioned. Everyone keeps reminding me I'm my own boss but the perfectionist in me still criticizes myself for the same reasons you mentioned. So you arent alone!
Your doll is darling and I cant wait to see your new ideas!
