This hop was all about words, something that will give a little more insight to who I am as a quilter. The words that popped into my head were many, but what stuck out most was PROCRASTINATOR. Yes people, I am a procrastinator, I know it is hard to believe that I postpone doing something especially as a regular practice when it comes to quilting, but there you have it.
I like to really think of it as being a great thinker.
I plan out what I want to do, find the fabrics I want to work with, and change my mine in the last minute. The other words that I have chosen is “SLOW”and “NO TIME”. Slow because I like to take my time in doing a good job. No time because I have procrastinated too long to get the dam thing finish.
So in saying that, here is what I will be hanging on my wall in the sewing room to remind me of my short comings.
Over the word “PROCRASTINATE” are books, I love to read and before Kindle I had boxes of them. Now with the Kindle I have over 150 books that I have read, and I only had the Kindle for about a year in a half. For Christmas the kids brought me a Kindle HD Fire, now I am stuck playing the game Temple Run. Now you know what I have been doing instead of quilting.
By the way, as I was look through my Kindle to see what books I have been reading, I realized they are all paranormal, (vampires, werewolves and other creatures of the night). Over to your right is my Dresden Clock, just in time for the Do You Dare to Dresden blog hop starting January 24th. Click on my side bar for more information on that. This is only the second Dresden I have done, no make it the third. I will give you more detail on this in the blog hop.
And last, but not least the sewing machine. It represents my love of sewing (just wish that I got a new one for Christmas), but I will be getting one for my birthday next month, if I have to buy it myself, the hell with the Fiscal Cliff, I will find the funds.
Now I will have a giveaway, I just need time to look through my stash to see what I might have to give away, or it might me a gift card. I will let you know by tomorrow and you will have until the end of this hop to leave a comment. Also, you have a second chance to win if you are a follower, so leave a second comment if you are following me or if you are just following me. How cool is
Well, I have to run and think of the fabrics I will be using for the Dresden Hop, It will take some thinking. I might even have it finished before it starts, I can only hope. Here is the list for todays Hop.
