How to find time for all?!

Well, I love to make all kinds of embroidery – crosstitch, handstitching, Roccoco, red work, white work….
I love to crochet too! My Grandmother told me how when I was around 6. Probably the most enjoyable for me are the crochetted edgings. … and Christmas angels…. Oh, and snowflakes. I love the huge table covers, but hey, who has so much time? It’ll take me years to finish one!
Grandma also taught me how to do netting with the strange two sided fork looking tool, that I inherited from her and she used it in school back in the 40’s. I never completed my “education” in net work, but intend to some day…
Some 15 years ago I saw a Burda magazine for tatting and fell in love with the look of the lace. Well, I learned that too, although it took me quite some time to figure out how to move those shuttles, since no one I know was able to teach me.
I really wanted to learn to knit lace and I guess it can happen some day, thogether with the learning to make bobbin lace. Ah… When do I find the time to practice all this?! I’m crossstitching now these hearts for a patchwork table runner I’m making for my mother in law. The crocheted edging is for a natural linen dress, but I can see it finished for the next summer with this speed, as I need more than 3 yards… And I wanted to make some angels this Christmas – I always seem to give them away. At the same time, school year is starting in just 3 weeks and I have a list of things to sew.

How one can find time for all this?!

    Would also love the crochet edging pattern, please. It is really cute and I also have this lovely linen that is begging for something special to pop it up some–that would do it beautifully.
