the sum of it



I am the source of my own problems. Is spending hours looking through my fabric a problem? I think it really is. I can't decide what to make out of what. I did this all afternoon and have only succeeded at making a giant mess.
I told Someone I would seed the yard today. And I don't mean he was like, "Will you seed the yard???" I mean I was like, "Do you want me to seed the yard?"
And he was like, "No thanks..." and I was pleading like I really wanted to do nothing else saying things like "I know you are busy...just let me do it."
And finally after I beat him down he said okay.
And I didn't do it because I was looking at my fabric.
And I also went out for lunch.
And now I am blogging.
And after this I will have a cup of tea.
Writing all this down has been helpful as now I am certain I won't seed the yard today, instead of all that wondering if I will get to it. So thanks for that.
While I'm here I'll share the Happy Camper shirt I began making for Henry and ended up making for Molly. All's well that ends well, right?

Oh, you are too funny! Very cute. I think "all's well that ends well" is a great saying. Ma Ingalls says it ALL THE TIME in the Little House books and she was a very admirable woman ;)
P.S. I'm having a giveaway.

Ohhh you make me smile. You make all of us feel human. How many times have we found 101 things to do that we think need doing at that time...to avoid what we should really be doing.

I'm doing it now. S/B sewing a retro 50's apron for a customer due tomorrow...never made a 50's apron of this sort so a weee bit intimidated by it...so here I sit. I'll get up at 4 a.m. and do it when I'm at my prime! hehehe.

I love that shirt, especially the gingham binding, and the hanger. The weather will be better tomorrow for seeding the lawn. (Amazing that I know that, isn't it, since I really don't know where you live!)

LOL. I have those days too often. I always think afterwards that God is telling me to slow down. The shirt is adorable.

Ooh! I love days like that. I would make a list of things I planned to do...When I didn't do the things I planned, I would add all of that other stuff, including the tea, just to get to cross it off! I'm crazy that way!

I had to post this to you...I left my comment about The Lonely Doll to you and I made a wish...I wish I had my Lonely Doll book. No kidding, I went off to Goodwill, and there it was, sitting waiting for me! I'll post on it next week! Life is good, and it seems, I'm not in control of it at all!
