I just finished my embroidery pattern for one of the stockings I'm making this year.

It's crazy complicated, and this is 1-of-2, so I get to start in October. And now I'm so impressed with myself, I am finding it difficult to start on the other one. :( I feel like the second design will take twice as long to sketch as the first! What items have you started for gifts? Or planned? Any other homemade crafters out there? How much planning do you do?
