Crochet-Worthy, The List
1) Are they a fan of hand-crafted items? ( Do they have them in their home, sing the praises of their latest purchase at the craft fair? Even go to the craft fairs? and so on)
2) Have I ever seen them wear or use a hand-made item?
3) Are they a crafter of any kind (who understands how long it actually takes and how much it really costs to make nice things)?
4) Why did I put them on the list? (Because I truly want to make something for them or because I feel obligated to give them a gift and they might like something I make?)
It was an interesting process. Enlightening in fact as I thought about my people a bit more closely. I also had to remind myself of my own limitations. Because my intentions will often be grand, but my reality falls short of being able to create masterpieces for everyone! With all of this information churning about in my brain I allowed adequate time for rumination. After a draft and an edit I give you the final cut!
I'm excited about the Holiday Stashdown Challenge (HSD). It's a great way to stay focused on my projects, and I'm pleased with the way that I'm thinking about things this year. If you're a procrastinator like I am I recommend hopping on the Stashdown Bus with us. My goal is to enjoy making my presents this year and hopefully eliminate the gift giving anxiety that typically surrounds the holidays. Because no one benefits from that!

That's all for today. Next week it's all about the yarn stash. Now that'll give me something to think about. I might even have to do some organizing!
Until next time friends,
Be blessed and stitch & read with love!
