BUT...don't despair. I did pick up some useful tips from her...the most important one is taking a piece of time...whether it be 15 minutes or 60...doesn't matter. Work, work, work until the time is up and it is amazing how much one can accomplish!!
For instance...this morning, I wanted to get everything straightened up so that when I start on a new project later today (more on that in a bit), I won't be feeling guilty. Okay, so I never feel guilty. BUT, this way, I feel better!!! I took 61 minutes and got so much accomplished!
I picked up all of the dog toys...
I did dishes...
What a helper Tag is...he brought Tango's dish to me...
(As you can see, he already has one toy out of the basket!)
I made my bed, put laundered clothes away - you know, like in the dresser or linen closet, etc. And, nope, they weren't from laundry I did this morning. Probably from a few days ago...or maybe last weekend? I took the garbage out, straightened the living room, cleaned off the kitchen table, hung towels in the bathroom, and I think that's it.
OHYEAH!!! And I drew out a pattern on linen! (just a bit longer before I tell you about that).
So...you see, things don't really take that long to do! (yes, I know you all know this...I am the one who constantly needs reminding!)
Now, I can do whatever I want to for the rest of the day...YAY!!! Course, I do need to vacuum, but I'll do that later. Really need to do something about this, first...
This is the accumulation of some of the woolens from my last 2 projects. And, probably a few pieces for my big a** star rug. What a mess I make!
So. Last night, I had one of those lightbulb moments!Part of that moment was remembering a pattern insert from the June/July/August 2005 issue of RHM. If you want to see what it is, go ahead and look, but shhhhhh...it's a secret project! I think I have all the woolens in my stash to do this rug...so I can get right on it...I am very excited! And, I had a nice piece of linen that I had drawn a pattern on BADLY, so used the reverse side. Like I said, this is a secret project, so cannot tell you anything else for now. I'm hoping to get it done before October 31, so you'll see it soon.
Okay...off to the store and then I can hook!!!
