In an effort to get organised...

Strawberry Fields - destined to be a windmill quilt

Last Saturday marked the 6 month countdown to Christmas. Eeeek! Where has the year gone? Seriously! So... in an effort to get myself organised as part of my Make. Bake. Craft. Create year, I wrote myself a Christmas to make list... Yes. I am honestly that geeky.

Arcadia - destined to be a DNP sashed in white

It's a rather optimistic list and I have a feeling that I am definitely biting off more than I can chew. I need to average 2 - 3 projects a month in between working full time, being a Mum, a housewife, a wife and a person. Thankfully a month or so ago I made the decision to book a cleaner fortnightly on a Friday. It's lovely to come home to a clean home. Makes my heart happy!

Anyway, I hope I haven't caused you too much panic with my Christmas countdown. Do you write lists to? And is anyone else already planning Christmas presents? Please assure me that I am normal (ish).

So with July already upon us, I've already sliced two Layer Cakes (above) ... just need to find the motivation to sew. Perhaps tonight! Happy sewing everyone!


  1. Lara darling, this is not normal. But it IS inspirational. I can barely think about next week, let alone next Christmas! Good luck with those projects - and good on you for booking a cleaner - that's a great idea! xx

  2. I'm sorry but it's just sick!! How can one be so super organised? Honestly it's just not on. Anyway I was wondering how you were going and if any house hunting has been sucessful.

  3. I am kind of with you on this one... I have been meeting with two friends once a month this year with the plan that we make one project a month for Christmas... I am a little behind though;o) And we are going op shopping next time we meet... maybe we will find something to re-purpose. We are also going to have a card making day. Does that make me super geeky?

    Oh and I am also a list maker:OS
