Where Does All the Time Go?!

Almost finished the last of my custom orders...and I feel ready to launch into some new products! A little sack of goodness has come my way, thanks to a friend who knows someone in the bridal dressmaking industry - look at these delicious offcuts!
I can picture a collar and ruff with matching cuffs that the Snow Queen would be proud of...

My mind has been racing a little whilst I've been working - I feel the need to make some Christmas stockings, some Christmassy bunting, some padded ornaments....but is that simply self-indulgent? I'd like to make my own gifts this Christmas - but I always say that, and never manage it. I'd like to make some glamorous neck warmers; some Christmas party glittery fancy necklaces; some decadent cuffs; some pendants suitable for the one you love; some accessories for the man in your life...but how do you find the time??!!! Answers on a postcard, please (in the comment section)!

I'm so jealous of your offcuts ;)

I am feeling exactly the same..padded ornament was started and abandoned for the moment to fulfill an order; pendants are being designed and developed!
No time..unless I stop blogging and blog reading!

I know how you feel and I always plan to make lots of Christmas presents but never seem to manage it! We have so many men in the family though and I never know what to make them. Stewart is getting more knitted socks this year!
I like the off cuts - gorgeous!
