So Saturday

I'm finally catching up on some of my book reviews over at A Garden Carried in the Pocket.  I only have 3 more to go.

Since I've neglected my stitching and my experiments with cloth this week, I really hope to get something done today.  I haven't done the TAST stitch (wheat ear) this week; guess I need to catch up with that.

The only cloth related work I've done this week has been with rust dyeing.  Our friend Ricky gave me some rusty old horseshoes a while back, and I've been working with those and a few other rusty items.  The pieces have gone through two alterations so far, and a third is in progress this morning.
Another pic of the banana bloom.  I just love the colors.

I've already wasted 2 1/2 hours piddling: deadheading dianthus, wallowing in Pinterest, wrapping the 3rd incarnation of rusty fabric, working on book reviews, and communing with stray grey cat.  

Time to go upstairs and get busy.  Sometimes I marvel at my own ability to delay.  Looking at it a certain way, I'm a Champion of Displacement Activity.  


  1. None of what you describe as "wasted" time sounds wasted to me -- you're just doing other things at the moment than you think you ought to be doing! Ought=not! ~ just do what you do when you do it!

  2. the beautiful flower and the very lovely link made me smile
    have a great weekend

  3. I'm piddling around on the web this morning. :-) It's raining and cold here...

  4. Connie - Maybe not wasted, but I've certainly been delaying working on some things that sound good in my head, but that I haven't reached the necessary motivation to begin. :)

    Emmy - Claudia (and her creator) often make my day! Thanks, Emmy!

    Stephie - Hard to quit that browsing, isn't it? Stay in, keep warm, and think about Florida, Stephie!

  5. Sounds like you got quite a bit done! Thanks for the fun link :)

  6. Nancy - I expect I'll get back to stitching this week because Karen Ruane's May class will begin, but working in the garden has only a short time to be enjoyed in the South, and I've been making the most of it.

    Looking at your roses the other day, made me want to try some of the new disease-resistant varieties.


Good to hear from you!
