SnowFlakes, Sleeves, & A Limited Attention Span!

New Black and White Rag Quilt...Hey actually finished something!
I painted this old cheesebox and added some snowflakes!!

Hanging tabletopper (don't look at the empty shelf...another project for another day)

Hello friends out there in Blogland! Good Lord, I've been up since 4:00am this morning and I've been a whirlwind of free motion! I began by starting the dishwasher after breakfast, then sorted and began a load of clothes...Good start, right? I decided that vacuuming was in order (it's been awhile), so I brought out the vacuum, plugged it into the wall and took about 3 swipes. I thought I had better move some floor decorations and when I did, I found some beautiful peacock feathers that I had forgotten about! Yipee! Then I remembered that I had an old clay urn that needed an arrangement! So I worked on the peacock feather, pine needle (and other organic matter) arrangement until it was just the way I pictured it in my mind! Voila! As I was putting the arrangement on the table I noticed that I didn't like the way the quilt tabletopper looked with the arrangement so I removed the tablecloth, folded it up for storage. Then as I was walking back to admire my new floral creation, I noticed a BIG BARE WHITE WALL! Oh my GOSH! The perfect place for my tabletopper! So I got the tabletopper back out of storage....ironed it, and looked up on the internet how to hang a quilt. A Sleeve?? Okay, I can do that, and I did. I hung the little piece on the Giant White Wall! Very pleased with myself, I now have to redo the shelf...another project for later. I sat down to have some lunch, unload and reload the dishwasher. After lunch I walked into the living room and tripped over the vacuum! I realized then that it had been sitting there for 6 hours!! Six!! Holy Moly....Okay, so here's my question for the day:

Is anyone else out there as empty of concentration as I am????

Love you all!!

P.S. At this writing..... the vacuum is still sitting in the livingroom, and I am totally exhausted!....


  1. I do that too! I can get so side tracked sometimes! Love the quilts!

  2. Oh yes, I can't tell you all the times I've done that. I love changing things around and right now I'm starting to get Valentines things out. I love the way you've hung your table topper and with a just a few touches your shelf will be complete. I guess we just get tired of looking at the same things all the time. I do like your black and white quilt. I'd never seen one like that before and it is very attractive. It sounds like your day has been off to a great start!

  3. I thought I was the only one with this proble

  4. yes!!! yesterday I put a PLATE in the toaster oven with my english muffin! and I put the cheese in the utensil drawer. I'm not sure what I was thinking about, but it was sure distracting!! Sounds like you accomplished a lot despite your distraction :).

  5. Side tracked, all the time! Chuckle ...

    Love LOVE that gorgeous quilt, Sharon. You did a beautiful job on picking out the fabric choices.
