Challenge Chaos

I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in the matter I’m about to discuss with you all but please, feel free to let me know if I am.  I may take on too many projects all at the same time.  Does this ever happen to you?  Don’t get me wrong – I love it … but sometimes I need to sit back and take a look at what needs to happen and what deadlines I’m looking at.

With that being said - this post is mostly for me.  I think  I need a post to help keep track of where I’m at, where I’m heading and when I need to be finished.

So … as you can see … I have a bit of work to do in the next few months.  But – I love a challenge and I love what inspiration comes out of me from these challenges!  I’ll keep you posted on how things go!


  1. Wow! That's a lot of challenges, but if anyone can do it, you can! And are you still doing the Aurifil mini each month too? I'd never be able to do what you are doing, but I sure enjoy reading your posts about your work, and seeing the delightful results!

  2. Whew....Is there any time in there for sleep?

  3. You are not alone. Last month, I blogged about being Challenged by Challenges. There are so many great challenge ideas out there, I am surprised that I am ever able to say no. Luckily for me, some of the deadlines for my challenges have been pushed and it looks like I might be able to get it all done (she typed ever so optimistically.)
