I Can't find the brake!!! Help!

Hello, hello, hello!

Hope there are still blogging pals out there who still remember me?

No, I haven't been hibernating or on vacation - though I wish I! Things just seemed to go from 0 - 60 in a split second and I can hardly get 2 mins. to do any blogging never mind posting or CRAFTING! Definite signs of! I can't even point to anything in particular - i just can't find the slow down button!

I have tried to finish projects and only end up frustrating myself - just take a look at this heap on the floor ~I've only myself to blame for this chaos - I see so many new patterns and ideas/freebies and get all fired up that I start ANOTHER project!

But I have managed to finish a couple of pieces that I'm going to list on my selling blog.

I really hope the pace slackens a bit in the next few days as I got my new patterns in the post from Country Stitches and I'm dying to get started on them!

If anyone can tell me how to better organize my time, I'd love to hear from you!

Hope you have a great week!
Best wishes


  1. What you have finished is wonderful!

    I have an idea, I have a serious case of The Slows, you need to Slow Down, maybe we can do a transplant or something! =D
    Hang in there.

  2. Christine, I know exactly how you feel!
    I do the same thing.


  3. Always watching what your up too Christine :-) x x x

  4. Just try to tackle one project at a time for awhile and see how that works for ya.

    Those finished pieces are adorable! Great job!

    Remember to breathe..........


  5. Hi Christine.. I was so busy looking at the unfinished product that I almost didn't see the finished..LOL.. They look like they took a lot of time so maybe you are accomplishing more than you Lovely work, as usual...
    I am working at something, too.... (wink, wink)

  6. Good to see you are still out there Christine! Your pillow is darling too. Seems we've all had something hindering our time or just lack of organization and motivation-you aren't alone. We just need to take a step back and realize we can't do it all and be happy with what we do accomplish.
    Blessings to you,

  7. Hey, glad to hear you still around-missed you:)

    I sure know the feeling, 'tho I think when you finish those goodies on the floor you will find you really have achieved a huge amount!!

    LOVE what you have finished-not sure which I love best as they both are my taste:)) Anything for Christmas and I'm weak!lol!

    Wohoo-yes, I love 'country stitches'patterns sooo much-I have two of her patterns on the go, Can't wait to see what you got:)

    Speak soon,

  8. LOL! I am soooooo the same! 100 things at a time! I have an idea to help you. Go ahead and send me that pile on the floor. I'll finish them for you since they are half way done already! ;)

    Love your stichery and the pillow!

  9. Hey Christine, you are not alone!! Time flies, I never stop and never seem to get finished. I can't sit still for five minutes, if I'm sitting I'm either stuffing or stitching, that is stuffing crafts, though I often stuff my face as well. 8-)
    I love your finished pieces, you did a great job!!

  10. Christine your new creations are gorgeous! I think it's perfectly normal to have lots of things on the go when you are a crafter, and how can you resist starting a new project!

  11. Carmens comment at Primcatshouse was cute. I have some heaps of unfinished items to. Never enough of me time to spread around. Pass on any great ideas you may get. Blessings!

  12. It's a busy time of year, that's for sure. I'm having trouble finding time to get online too. If you don't have time to craft, you can always just post photos of your beautiful countryside though!

  13. I feel your pain and have found myself in this same mode...its like hiking through a thick caramel stopping to take a taste all along and then getting lost!! Oh what to do?
    Takes for the visit are always welcome! I so enjoy your craftiness!!

  14. I love the pillow and the cross stitch. I have so many of those same projects...working on too many at a time. But at least there is never a dull moment! Happy thanksgiving. Dianntha
