The Cat and the Bags

The last couple of weeks have been a huge blur of busyness and deadlines and canvas... lots of canvas. I've made lists only to scrap them for newer lists, and then scratch them out because of the other thing. There is fabric... everywhere.

I'm maybe not so good at the scheduling thing, but I ROCK at the overscheduling thing. Apparently, there is a difference. (Somewhere, my husband is slapping his forehead.)

This holiday shopping season came upon me like a freight train on crack. Suddenly, everything in the world has to be done by Nov. 1st. Everything.

And although I've been very good at starting things early (seriously!), I've been extremely bad at estimating exactly how looonnnnnng something can take to complete. Also good to know is that I can't sew for 14 hours a day for a week straight. My body begins to send little signs that this little arrangement "just isn't working."

So, let's recap, Mendy! Plan better, give yourself more time, don't overschedule, don't forget sleep. Yeah, I guess that pretty much covers it.

In other news, I thought I would let everyone know that Max, the yard sale kitty, is still surviving and thriving in his new home.


Man, that kitten chow stuff really works! He really is a sweetie, and gives kisses on your nose if you pick him up and he likes you and such. He and Baxter get along like brothers that sort of play together and sort of annoy each other but basically like each other.

I've got several etsy things to show you, but that will have to wait for another day. I hear that after Nov. 1st, I should have a little bit of free time.
