Seriously. The old adage of 'if you want something done, ask a busy person to do it' does not apply to me. The more I try to do, the less I get done.
Wendy from Sugarlane Quilts blessed my socks off the other day. I saw a new stitch-along that she's doing on her blog, and fell in love with it - it's from Australian Homespun magazine, and of course I don't live in Australia. The first block is in the magazine, and the rest are free downloads from their website. She sent me the magazine, and two skeins of floss - isn't she a sweetie? Look how cute this is, and see if you could resist it....
See??? Thank you darling Wendy, I can't wait to get started!
But that's not all. Cori from Creativity Amongst Chaos just made a new pattern, and had a give away on her blog. OH MY. Cutest ever! I bookmarked the page of her shop, so I could buy the pattern if I didn't win. Well, I tend to browse my bookmarks late at night, when I'm sleepy, and totally forgot I entered her give away. I bought the pattern before it ended, it's just way too cute and I had to have it. Didn't even realize she'd have five winners...and guess who was one of them, lol!
The new pattern is called Dive In, see why I had to have it? Bless her heart, she emailed me to tell me I won, and I laughed, and told her to pick someone else as I had just purchased it - and she offered me to let me pick another pattern! So I picked Merry Kissmas, and they both came a few days ago. If you love Dive In as much as I do, you can purchase it here! The mouse wreath I'm going to make for my aunt for Christmas, I think she'll like it.
So I'm getting ready to get a lot done, hahahahaha. Really, I am. I have so many things going on right now....my latest free design is up on my design wall, waiting to become a little quilt.
I managed to get the strips cut, just need some time to work on it. AND - I've been looking through some UFO's, I have so many things I've started that I think I'll give each project its own day. Monday for this, Tuesday for that...and hopefully I'll have a finish before Christmas. I do get a bit of stitching done while I wait in the car for mum to finish therapy, takes two hours 3 times a week.
Today I spent several hours running mum around - getting her meds, groceries, etc. I'm exhausted, and as soon as dinner is in the oven I'm going to sit and stitch. May have to get my jammies on first....hope you're having a great day too!
