Ducks

Do you have all your ducks in a row? I don't. My ducks aren't even on the same pond these days - in fact, I think I may have misplaced the pond. I just can't seem to get my act together and keep it that way. I think I have all this time to get things done and the next thing I know, the day is over and I haven't even made a decent dent in my list. This is also why the blog posts are so few and far between these days - I keep running out of day! Not that I was 'on the ball' before the time change, but for some reason this year it seems to have really knocked me off schedule. It doesn't usually take more than a few days to adjust but not this year. (it couldn't have anything at all to do with my age!)
In between trying to line up my duckies I've managed a little (but not much) stitching. I'm still working on the exchange ornament. I have a week to finish stitching it and get it made into an ornament and ready to mail. Of course I can't show a picture of that and the only other thing I've done since Houston is make up a couple of pillowcases. I picked up a 'kit' at the quilt show and made one - I liked it so I ordered a mate and made it up so I would have a pair.


I'm still telling myself I am going to get it together, but like most things I also keep telling myself I'll get to that in January. My job is ending as of Christmas (shop is closing) so I'll be home in January and everything keeps getting pushed to then - so far I'm going to have a very busy January!
Better go - I have ducks to wrangle.

Ok, what's in a pillowcase kit? That sounds like a lot of straight seams, I could handle that!

The pillowcases are pretty. I like the fabric! I completely understand the running out of day! I can't blame the time change. I have been this way since school started this year. I haven't even gotten a single birthday card sent since then!
Blessings,

Well, I keep meaning to stitch up some pillowcases. And have yet to do so. And now that I have my sewing closet, no more excuses. The time change has knocked me even farther off-kilter. And if you're job is ending in January, you can get possibly get by with pushing things off until then. And I wouldn't beat up on myself about it. There's only so much time in one day.

Hi Tina - thanks for stopping by. I haven't posted much lately either. I'm about ready to go to bed after supper with the time change and it being dark. I really like your pillowcases you stitched. Love the colors. Glad you're feeling better, too!

I think I have chickens instead of ducks...

Oh, those awful ducks!!! I can identify with you. My ducks evidently are not in a row. I am like you. I have big plans for the day and then of a sudden the day is over and I have not accomplished near what I had planned to do.

As you can tell by the date of this comment, I am waaaayyy behind on reading blogs.

When you find the answer to getting the ducks in order, let me know.
