Accomplishing little

I have decided that someone must be putting something in my tea because I cannot seem to accomplish anything no matter how busy I am. I must pass out for hours and not remember. Can anyone out there relate to that?

For the past three and a half days I have been painting white walls so you know I really needed a color "fix" so out came my dyes. 300 yds of silk ribbon later and I feel better. These are mainly solid colors (boring) while I am sleeping tonight I will dye mottled and pox.....They are ironed and are being carded.

This morning I was at the dentist getting my crown replaced.A few months ago I was eating seedless watermelon and chipped it. Don't ask me how, it just happened. Anyway it is now replaced with a nice shinynew one and I am good to go. Just in time for my stitch presentation tomorrow evening for the String-along quilt guild. After that is over my attention turns to 12 charms, puzzle pieces, some friends gifties and a commissioned item. All fun things. I decided to drift along until I get back to "no obligation" mode before joining the two local groups I had planned on joining last month. It just makes sense to join when my plate isn't overflowing. I want to start with a fresh mind.

Yesterday I took time off to grocery shop. Yes, the fun chore everybody loves to do. I swear prices have doubled since last week. Wow! I had to recover by stopping at Michael's and found some fun things to play with.
I love these garment pins. They are so cute and unique. I'm trying to think of how I could use them in my charm making. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.....gotta think about that one a bit.

~~~~I wanted to let those concerned about the fawn that was being chased by the coyote know that it has been back and has a sibling. They have been back a few times and are happy, healthy, and unharmed. However , I haven't seen any sign of the mother. I hope it isn't another orphan issue like a few years ago. :-( Poor babies.

Hopefully I will have some new projects to share next week. A good friend of mom's is arriving Friday to visit for a long weekend so I will most likely be at mom's with them chit-chatting most days which means no or very little blogging. So behave until then and I'll catch ya later.


  1. Hi Pat: I think you are amazing and always accomplish so many things in a very short amount of time. I love your hand dyed silk ribbons. What great finds at Michaels and I have never seen garment pins like you got. I look forward to seeing the charms you make with them. Love to follow your blogs. Enjoy your visiting.

  2. Hi Pat..
    Good to hear you survived the "Painting" a necessary evil eh??
    I love your finds at Michaels... Never heard of those pins so I have no idea how you would use them, but i love the silk leaves....Lots of fun there and the wee birds and nests willl have the perfect home I am sure....
    I had a bit of a smile come over me when I envisioned you with white paint smudges on your face and a chipped crown~~~~
    Well my dear I best go,
    I went shopping with DH to-day for a new lawnmower. Quite a drive to get there and then it wasn't what he thought it was...
    So we bought a new patio set, cushions and a chaise instead.... A better deal as far as I am concerned!! haha
    Now if the cool rainy weather would just go away!!!!!
    Take care and have a good visit with your mom...

  3. Something in your tea and then you show us 300 yards of perfectly dyed ribbon done after 3 days of painting and dentist appt. Give me some of that tea paleezzz! Have a fun weekend and if I can get some good photos(camera acting up) I'll be back to posting. Sharon

  4. Hi Pat,
    I have always wondered how you iron those silk ribbons. Do you have a special technique to do many at a time?

  5. Wow! Look at all those gorgeous flat silk ribbons!


    Oh, excuse me!
