The question now remains - "Can I pull this rabbit out of the hat?"
I'm not sure what the answer to this one is! Hopefully, yes, I will manage to pull it off! One way or another, I will have a lot of stitching and craft projects to show you in the next little while - either the promised handmade Christmas gifts or the stuff I will be doing instead. My new work schedule has been playing havoc with my stitching time, let alone my computer time, but I have decided I am simply going to HAVE to get dh into the housecleaning routine, as much as he hates it! That should free up a little time for me! Cross your fingers for me!
