A little bit here & there

One of the saddest parts of my psyche is that I have a hard time with tasks unless there is a deadline breathing down my neck. Lack of focus. Easily distracted. Oh hey is that something shiny over there?

Ok, back. I checked my email too. Where was I? Oh yes, no focus.

I worked a little bit on Autumn’s Mira RR. I was just going to pull the threads and get it set up but, oops I started.

It’s going to be Fairy Idyll.

Then OTR jumped into my hands.

*sigh* Pretty pretty pretty.

Then while I was checking the stash for threads/beads/kreniks for 3 other projects that I want to start NOW, I figured I might as well make 100% sure that my kit for Merry Christmas is complete.

It is.

And I pulled out my 1/2 cut quilt for my ds that I was supposed to have completed by April. I feel so guilty. I’ve done baby samplers, now a quilt for another baby and I still haven’t done either for my own kid. Granted I do his laundry… but I feel bad. No pic of that (the quilt, not me feeling bad) but I really want to finish the cutting tomorrow.

And this evening I went back to Caribbean.

I’d also like to say thank you to everyone for the good thoughts for Mike. Mom sent me more pictures, ones she took at the wrecker yard.

OMFG. He walked away. After the firemen spent the better part of a hour cutting him out. Oh yes, we did not get the full story from the man himself until the evidence was presented. He’s still ok. My mom did not kill him after seeing the truck. I am too far away to do any damage. I did tell my mother that she needs to take more life insurance out on him. We laughed, so did Mike. But I did send him a key chain with a four leaf clover on it today. I think he may have used all of his good luck up.

    Glad to hear your step-dad is okay…

    The benefit of having a short attention span is a post full of pictures for us to admire 🙂

  2. It’s amazing that someone could actually walk away from something like that! I’m glad he’s okay and know he’ll appreciate your 4 leaf clover key ring! I love your starts, your stash and your scatterdness! I have it too but I sure do enjoy seeing everything that grabs your attention.

    WOW – that is something to have walked away from – again, so glad he is okay.

    I need to go fondle some stash now, you have totally made me jealous that you got to touch that much crafty stuff all in one day. 🙂

  4. HE WALKED AWAY FROM THAT?!?!?! Yeah, your mom needs to triple the life insurance on him. I just can’t get over that picture.

    OTR is looking fine as is Caribbean! I hear you on the easily distracted/lack of focus. Not to bore you with details (that’s for my own blog) lets just say my office looks like a bomb went off, and I can’t seem to change that….

    Ugh, that picture of the truck gives me the shivers. Very scary. So glad he walked away from it.

    You’ve been so busy since I was gone! All of your projects are wonderful.

    That’s amazing. I’m so glad that he’s ok.

    As far as jumping around from project to project… that’s ok! You’re getting stuff done and you’re happy about it. 🙂

    Thank goodness he’s ok. That is scary! I love all the beautiful things you’re working on. Your embroidery is really coming along. You may have me talked into that quilt before long. And I’m really thinking I may go for Caribbean for my birthday!

    Yikes! What a scary picture of the damage to your step-dad’s truck. I’m glad he’s okay.

    Love the other pictures! I can related to the “easily distracted” comment.
