Scatterbrained

April 28th 2014

“Hello? Is this thing on? Can anybody here me? ‘tap, tap, tap’ testing 1,2,3, okay I think it’s working now.”

I know you must be thinking what in the world happened to her? I know I have been wondering the same thing.  For example, the Friday Night Block Parties have been suspended for a few weeks and hopefully will return on an “as finished” basis.  That’s what I can manage and thanks for stopping by!

I have just been feeling a little scatterbrained doing a little bit of everything and a little bit of nothing, yes, at the same time.  I never thought of myself much of a “WIP”  (Work in Progress) or “UFO”  (Un-Finished Object) type of quilter. I kind of like the way quilting comes to a clean finished end with all the pieces neat and tidy in one place.  But as of late, due to this scatterbrained condition, I seem to float aimlessly back and forth between projects never quite getting to finish any.

Here is my WIP checkerboard blocks waiting to become a border for a quilt that’s almost done. I even have backing fabric. Does it remind you of anyone?

Then I got inspired by scraps to make a little something to take on the Summer vacation.

If you recall, I started this for the 30/30 Challenge and now I am not sure what size to make it because my Craft Corner has little wall space for me to hang it so I keep adding and unpicking the rest of the spools.

And another boxy pouch is waiting in the wings.

Then I thought I would tamper with my embroidery again.

Feeling frustrated by the satin stitch, (Really on the first letter such a difficult stitch?) I gave myself permission to go on to the next letter to gain some confidence.

Then of course, I got totally engrossed and distracted by sorting all the floss I had. It was so therapeutic it was hard to stop!

So there you have it. While I haven’t finished much, I have been doing something!
