Work in Progress: Zebra Cuff

Do you ever feel like no matter how much you get done, there’s never enough time for all that’s left? My schedule this past week has left very little time for beading, so I’m still working on last week’s cuff bracelet. The longer it goes on, the more rushed I feel when I think about the rings I want to make before moving on with the next piece for my Egyptian Gods challenge.

The good news is, I’ve nearly finished the herringbone work, so hopefully I’ll be able to finish most or all of the embellishments by tomorrow. If I can just squeeze in an extra hour or two of dedicated beading time, I can probably get back on schedule without cutting anything out of my to-do list.

With several different deadlines looming, and a few too many side projects and everyday duties pulling me in every direction, I’m seriously considering doing an overhaul of my timetable and activities. We recently implemented Kaizen at my day job, and it’s starting to look like a good idea around here as well.

What are your favorite timesaving techniques?
