This is what I'd like to be doing ...

Now that my school reports are looming, I'd really like to finish this embroidered quilt that only needs backing.
I'd also like to add the finishing touches to this Friendship Quilt that I got back in January, that needs a final boarder and then some backing and quilting.
...oh, and I've started some knitting that I'm enjoying and that is a peaceful way to sit and watch a DVD and be productive at the same time . . .
...and when all else fails, some colouring or drawing would be fun too. Oh the things we can think of when there is something that HAS to be done!

Your crayons look so delicious!!!! But don't you get sad when they get broken and worn down?

I can always think of a million things I'd rather do when there is something I HAVE to do - even when the "have to do" is something nice like sewing!

Hi Annie, that quilt is beautiful. Have you ever done a quilt in batik before? would you like to if you have the material?

Great photography... Everyone should own crayons and a coloring book... There would be less stress in our world today.

Yes, it is amazing at the ideas one can come up with when other demands loom overhead. I do hope that you can get to them soon.
