Running out of time....and Merry Merry!

So there's a week left in this year... it looks like #15in2015 is in jeopardy. That being said, I'm going to make a valiant try over the next week. We'll see what happens. 

In the mean time, I have #8, 9, and 10 to report. Yes, I'm being quite lax in my definition of a fibre project but at this point, one has to be a little forgiving. 

So first #8 which is a second Viking's a pic of both of them on their recipients. They actually wore them for quite a while!

And I'm going to cheat big time on these next items. I'm taking credit for two of them, the third was made by Smidgie. Not that much work, but technically still fibre. Fun, anyway. They will be gifted to family tomorrow. 

So 5 projects to go in a week. Obviously unlikely. But I think I have at least one that hasn't yet been reported, but is actually finito! And there's one that I do think is feasible to finish in a week. Considering the year it's been, I'm okay with admitting imperfection on the goal. 

And with that I will wish you all a Merry Christmas! I hope you have some time to enjoy some fibre fun in your time off. All the best. :)

#7...did you doubt me?

I can't blame you if you doubted whether you would see another item completed in 2015. It's been rather a busy year, to say the least. 

But I've at least made it to #7. And I can say that #8 is in the works. Another piece is underway but I know that it won't be done in 2015, so I won't even count it as #9 because that would be reckless. 

Without further adieu, I introduce you to the Viking Hat*. Rather a random item, one might say. On Rocketman's side of the family there are mild jokes about Viking roots, so I thought a couple of these for the toddlers in the family might be kind of fun. 

So this one is done...and you guessed it, #8 is another Viking Hat. You're very swift, putting two and two together like that. 

Not the greatest photos because I'm never home in daylight, and really it seems there's really been no daylight for weeks. I guess there is, but with the fog and grey skies it seems otherwise. So, sorry you get dull photos, but hopefully they give you the general idea. :) Fun, yes?

Multiple Passions

Long time no chat. So sorry about that. I have something interesting to share with you today. I have had an "aha" moment in the last short while and I feel that I have found my people! Truly, though that may sound weird and cliché. 

As you may have done from time to time, I was stumbling around the internet from one thing to another, which I mention to say that I'm not sure how I got to each of these but wow, I'm so glad that I found each and every one of them. 

Essentially what I've found is advocacy for having more than one passion and more than one focus in life. There are other people like me! I've always felt that I was the only one, or one of few, that had so many interests that I didn't know what to focus on. And I always felt like such a failure for it. 

Aha! I'm a Multipotentialite. Or so says Emilie Wapnick. Her TEDTalk started me down the road to this epiphany.

Then I read Mark Manson's post entitled "Screw Your Passion" which is a bit of a different message, but also resonated loud and clear. Yes! 

Watching a webinar from the When I Grow Up Coach, Michelle Ward, I found out about Elizabeth Gilbert's SuperSoul Session and well, wow. 

So suffice it to say, you don't need to read or watch any of this if you've always had that one true passion in life that has steered you from day one and is still the focus of your life today. 

But if you're like me, with so many interests, hobbies, and careers that have made up your life and you've always wondered why, then these resources will resonate loud and clear. 

And now I know why I never have time to blog. ;)

Chat soon.
