Seriously Stressed

I am a tried and true procrastinator. While I was a single mother in the late 80s with 2 small children going to school full time and working 3/4 time - I would always wait until the evening before a paper was due to write it. ALWAYS! I don't know why, but I seem to work better under pressure. With the upcoming vacation - I have lots of things planned that I want to get finished. I'm just now starting to stress that it won't all get done. Our plane takes off (yea right!) at 10:40 a.m. on Friday, October 20th. Here's the current status: *Handknit afghan for nephew - have 6 1/2 rows left, ran out of yarn, picked up remaining ball yesterday at JoAnns. Will hopefully finish on Monday. *Bag for DWOA friend - have been purchasing more stuff to stuff it with :) the shell is complete and a picture has been taken. The lining bottom and pockets are assembled and one side of the lining is complete with pockets attached, including an added pocket to hold an extra-special gift card. Photo of the empty, unassembled side taken. The lettering has been programed into my super duper sewing machine and samples were stitched this morning for centering purposes. So, about 85% done - will hopefully finish tonight. *Clothing for moi **Brown faux suede skirt - done **Other brown skirt - done **AB skirt - done **Pink print skirt - skirt is done to zipper installation, lining is cut out - hope to have time to work on Monday night. **Blue twinset - no progress other than the fabric has been washed **Pint twinset - see above **Sage t-shirt - see above Travel Knitting - has been decided upon. I'm making kitchen sets for the holidays which will include a felted oven mitt, felted potholder, 2 warshrags - ala MasonDixon knitting, and a dishtowel made from the burbcloth pattern. I have 2 oven mitts done, I just need to find coordinating cotton yarns for the warshrags and towels. Planning on heading to Michaels at lunch today. Better get to work, so I can actually leave the office at lunch :)
