Realizations, Christmas, and knitting

I have to realize that I need to stop judging myself by what others do, and what others get accomplished. I say this because sometimes the smallest things are the biggest challenges for me, and when I over come them, that is an accomplishment, and I am moving forward. I am doing harder things, and while they consume so much of me to get done, I am still doing them. I haven’t completely come to stop like I have before. I can only do what I can do, and no more. It’s so easy for me to accept that in other people, to be encouraging ( I hope ), that maybe I need to be more forgiving with myself.

 Totally different subject…. Last night, we had our Christmas in the park, and our Troop helped with the fire. Santa even came, and they had carrollers. Aren’t their costumes great. It was cold, and a wonderful evening. The oldest took a picture with Santa, but I’m not allowed to share that he says. :


I’ve got new bedroom furniture. Plus, I have one fetching done, and one arm attatched to the baby sweater I am working on. Plus some of my stash.

    Hey, I notice that sometimes artistic people are the hardest on themselves. So I know exactly how you feel. I can be a perfectionist towards what I make and my husband is always encouraging me to let go of that. Anyways, thought to encourage you that you can do it! By the way, I am almost in ravelry! Hope you have an awesome day!
