Have you got an hour?

Please loan it to me, I need it. I think life is conspiring against me at the moment! All I want to do is sew, but work and life keep getting in the way. I have so much to do, I shouldn't be sitting here right now blogging, I just don't have time!

I'm into my second year of the SSCS as organised by Chookyblue. (Sorry, swap closed now) I have my swap details, I've managed to go and lurk a couple of times, I know her favorite colour. I also know that I'll need to go shopping. Beyond that, I don't have a clue. If you are my secret Santa, could you send me some time please, a great big box of it! LOL Seriously? I love blue!

Let me see, what else needs my attention? The latest work in progress is still spread over the dining room floor awaiting my attention. I sew a few patches together each day, but it really is a very sloooooooooow way of doing things, I find it frustrating. You can see it a few posts back!

The 'Gettin' Shirty' top has changed names so often I've forgotten what to call it! I have batting for it now, and the back is ready...........

'Kays Roses', got much further than this image shows, it is all layered up and I even started quilting it but it is stalled at not even half way. My muse is keen to get on with it, she keeps sending me dreams of the quilt completed, I awake with the urge to get on and do something to it, then chicken out cause I think it's too complex, or just plain don't have time.

It's a morning off work today, I don't start until 3pm. I plan to work on the pieces I have laid out on the dining room floor, but I also need to do some housework! I'll be working on a rewards system, dust a little, sew a little, dust a little, press a little. Hopefully by the time I have to go to work I'll have a tidier home, all these pieces will be put together and ready for a border.

On the job front, no joy. I turned down the opportunity for a second interview at the place I mentioned in my last post. It really didn't feel right. I'll plod on where I'm at, I can afford to take my time and make sure I get the right position.

Hope you have a productive morning. I think dust a little, sew more sounds better.

If anyone does send you a big box of time, please would you share it? I should have plenty of it as I don't work, but somehow I don't.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who seems to have lost time. As spring has now sprung here, everything starts to get really busy, not to mention that Christmas is looming ever closer. I hope your reward system works for you.

If I had the power to send you a big box of time I would! I know how frustrating it is when time is in short supply. When I have to do housework and just want to sew I do 15 mins work and 15 mins sewing etc. It's amazing what you can get done in 15 mins. I hope you manage to find some time!!!
