Just do it

Ever have one of those weeks where at the beginning it feels like you have all the time in the world. Then everything (and I mean lots of things) happens and all those lovely lazy feelings come tumbling down with reality rearing its ugly head.

Okay, here's what happened - I send the geezer off to soccer practice Tuesday evening thinking, ho hum, I've got some me-time and lots of crafting for the rest of the week, as I had sufficiently convinced myself that I can now start the humungous quilt top. Anyways, he came back too soon limping and in agony due to a bad achilles ankle injury from soccer, of course. So, from Wednesday until today we've been in and out of doctors and chemists (drugstores, for the folks in the US), and I've been looking after essentially two babies. The poor geezer now needs a set of crutches to get around and he's lapping up all the attention from me. Its now "Darling, can you please get me a glass of water?" or "Darling, can you please do me a favour?" or "Darling, can you please hand me my mobile phone?".........and on and on and on. You imagine the rest.

Of course, there is also the "real" baby to look after and thankfully, she's still working on a timetable. So, aside from THAT major drama a few other opportunities presented themselves, which I can't really say much about at the moment, but suffice to say there will be interesting times in this household in the next few weeks. Lots of fun and mayhem to come.....a source of some blogging amusement, for me anyway. Hence the motto of this week is - just do it!

In between of all the headless chook running, I finally finished this stuffed kitty for a little girl's birthday present - pattern from Wee Wonderfuls.....

....and I'm about to cut into some beautiful Freshcut fabric to make a queen size version of Eclectic which you can find on this site. Wish me luck!

The little heart cutout felt shoes on the kitty - don't they just make it? Adorable.
You won't need luck with the quilt, so I'll wish you lots of fun instead.
