I would have got more done today if I had any will power.
I should have got more done today because I have parcels to post to far away places.
I could have got more done today if I focused.
But I didn't. I've been blog hopping, entering giveaways - and... um... and finishing a tub of Haagen Dazs Chocolate Mint Ice Cream. Ever tried it? It is lush!
I did finish off another candlemat. I chopped up some charms I had sitting there waiting for the right project. Backed it in unbleached cotton from IKEA. Added a touch of perle and it can be popped into someone's Christmas parcel. That leaves two more things to make for the packages that should have been posted last week.
I will endeavour to get more done. But there are so many incredible giveaways. Honestly, how am I supposed to stay focused?
It looks great.ReplyDelete
Bugger focus, there are prizes to be won ;-)ReplyDelete
Well even so, the candlemat is beautiful. Your work is great. Good luck on the giveaways.ReplyDelete
Good luck - wouldn't it be great if you won multiple times?!ReplyDelete
Focus? What's that? Love your candle mat.ReplyDelete
This is lovely - not bad for unfocused. I gave up on the giveaways when I realised I hadn't be doing the Rafflecopter thing right, and I have no idea which blogs it was on!ReplyDelete
I'm with you about 'staying focused" - so hard to do with so much to look at!!!! Love that candle mat.ReplyDelete
Mmmmmmm, mint ice cream. I can understand your focus problems. SarahReplyDelete
LOL! You giveaway junkie! Lovely festive mat! JxoReplyDelete
I'm supposed to be binding a charity quilt, Christmas decorating and baking and I am blog hopping too!ReplyDelete
Would have, should have what? You have a beautiful finish! It always amazes me how hand stitching can perfectly finish off a project. BeautifulReplyDelete
well i could have worked today...that is could have gotten some work done today. i did come into the building and sat at my desk. that ends my idea of work today!!!ReplyDelete
Well at least you are increasing your 'luck' with so many entries. Good thing you have ice cream to keep your strength up! Another nice candle mat Mrs S. Di xReplyDelete
Gorgeous makes as always. My focus is wandering around like a lost idiot looking for it's village.ReplyDelete
No wonder I like you so much Susan ! It will probably get there on time anyway! I think there is another tub of icecream calling you!ReplyDelete
Sweet candle mat! I'm guessing there will be late Christmas mail this year!ReplyDelete
Tut, all that ice cream, you'll get tummy ache then won't be able to sit in front of the computer, think woman, think!ReplyDelete
Ah you crack me up! Icecream and blogging what a combination...I hope you are more successful today. Make sure you get my parcel posted - Australia is a long way from England, lol.ReplyDelete
I made a concious decision just to enter the ones of people I follow....otherwise I would be there all day....I'm a bit of a drifter...even when things need doing!ReplyDelete
I think you really are my long lost sister. I start the day with good intentions and get side tracked by blogs, email, Pinterest and the internet in general. Sometimes I just sit and day dream.ReplyDelete
Love the candle mat my friend. At least you managed to get that done. I probably would have a achieved a big fat zero.
Oh I dont know susan, Ice cream? In this weather?! Brrrr... Lovely candlemat you've just knocked up there :-)ReplyDelete
That is far more than I got done today, I just did the blog hopping and entering giveaways! :)ReplyDelete
OMG woman, you're a machine, and this is lovely. How on earth do you fit it all in, and with ice cream eating, now that's the kind of day i wish i'd had! : )ReplyDelete
Really beautiful - I love your red stitching around the outside too!ReplyDelete
Hope you're successful in your giveaways-i didn't get to enter many, no time :-(ReplyDelete
Love this candle mat
Tell me about it!ReplyDelete
I too am looking at giveaways, no one would expect anything different.ReplyDelete
Love the perle border.ReplyDelete
Reading your blog (and other quilty procrastination) is reward for all the stuff only mum's end up doing for Christmas. And your blogged creations are such a lovely reward. Good luck with the giveaways!ReplyDelete
I have so missed this giveaway thing - will have to put my thinking cap on!ReplyDelete
