... and things that get done

I believe I have discovered a new way to overcome procrastination. Write about what I am avoiding! I felt so driven to finish the purse project that I last wrote about that I worked diligently three nights in a row and finished attaching the handles this morning on the drive in to work. And it looks so sweet.

things left undone

It has been bothering me lately that I have two unfinished knitting projects. They are both purses, both bound off. They are waiting to be lined and handles attached. I even have in my possesion the perfect Amy Butler fabric and bamboo handles for the cute little cabled number knit out of Lamb's Pride Bulky in Seafoam. It truly is precious. Why haven't I finished it? I tell you, it has alot to do with the fact that a sewing machine is so much louder than knitting. You have to be in the mood to sew. Its not really relaxing. My shoulders even tense up and my lips purse (who needs a hobby than encourages fine lines and wrinkles?) Plus I am sure I will have to set up the ironing board and iron to press the seams. Drat. In reality If I had just up and sewn this darn lining, I could have been done with this purse and be swinging it off my wrist for all to admire eons ago. Now I am on the verge of a bulk knit cable purse looking out of season!

Jennifer made me do it

Miss Randomness herself has been on my case about needing a blog. Like I need to take my sassy self nationwide. ARE YOU HAPPY????

Anyway... this blog is going to be about things important to me. Right now that is the yard. Specifically everything non-grass related. Grass is the responsibility of the hubby. All things pushed into the dirt, producing blooms or produce... those are my domain. Things are really getting geared up here in Middle TN. I offer my thanks to God for the wonderful, mysterious beauty that are Rhododendrons and Azaleas.
