Half the year gone? Three more days of school (well, two and a half if you’re a kid who’s counting)? How did this happen? I don’t know how it happened, I just now that 2009 is fast moving.
And like the gobs of cottonwood fluff swirling around my backyard, I’m in a mental frenzy trying to make the most of the last few days of peace before sewing productivity plummets.
So, what do I go and do? Start something new that wasn’t in the “plan” (or the semblance of a plan that resides noggin-side). Well, it landed in my email-box. What can I say? I’ll tell you what it is once it is more accomplished.
I can say that I have it ready for handwork for the hockey game tonight.
And, while I don’t retract any of the nice things I’ve said about Pittsburgh recently (what a lovely city…), it is the Stanley Cup we’re talking about and this is Michigan. I’ll go back to warm-fuzzy Pittsburgh feelings after we win. 🙂 But, go me, I have some handwork at the ready!
It was also not too late for making part of a teacher gift:
Yes, it’s the famous journal cover with directions courtesy of the lovely Bloom blog!
A pattern so nice, I made it twice. However, the one below is a quarter of an inch TOO SHORT:
D’oh! My next quest will be to find a notebook that fits it so it doesn’t go completely to waste. In your comments, please be sure to say how much nicer the flowery one is…
Aside from these two things, there are A LOT of things I want to start, but they are suffering from a bit of a delay of game. All righty, maybe I need to go and make a list and get some of the swirling bits down on paper so I can remember what I meant to do before next week comes.
Can we slow the year down just a little???
