Too many projects

I am trying to juggle too many knitting projects at the moment.I have 3 pairs of socks on the go and I am sure my next sock club projects will be arriving with December.I am also making a scarf for my daughter,a dane shawl for my step mother and have also started some cross stitch.I have decided not to give anyone the scarf where the colour ran but keep it for myself.My trouble is I want to keep everything for myself.I like the thought of when I go out selecting a scarf from a choice.
I like to collect things and my latest collection is Mabel Lucie Atwell postcards.I just love the illustrations.They are so cute and remind me so much of Ruby.I have bought several on e bay and will give me something to hunt for when we are out and about.
I really shouldn't be on here.I am in 2 book groups,one more serious than the other!The casual one is next Friday and we are meeting for lunch as it's Xmas.We are reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which is 500 + pages long and I am only up to page 250.
My box is coming along nicely.I hope whoever gets it likes my choices.


  1. My reading time seems to have disappeared at the moment, I have a pincushion to make for Embroiderers guild xmas lunch this week and a santa box item to finish plus a scarf for Lotties friend, why is there only 24hrs in a day?

    Hope you have plenty of things lined up for when you get home from the knee op?

    Take Care Sx

  2. Everyone is so busy - I feel quite laid back with just two pairs of socks and a pair of mittens on the go. Finished my Secret Santa stuff and, just like you thought "Oooh! I want to keep these for myself!" I think I'll have to do a repeat job!!
