Distractions Happen....

I should have been getting something to eat so that I can go do laundry and then head over to quilt the 12 blocks that are pinned on the t-shirt quilt.........but distractions happen around here.   And if not doing that I should have been working on the t-shirt pillows.....but without the border fabrics out and accessible....distractions happen.   And it's not like there aren't other commissioned items that need to be worked on....patterns to make for knife sheaths, scrub tops to sew, quilts to baste, and proof-reading to do.....but distractions happen.

And when distractions happen a new project grabs my attention.....yes, I'm easily distracted.  Today's distraction started with remembering that I'd pulled some scraps of poppy fabric to put in a box of stuff for a quilting buddy.....and wondering if they'd go with this long-ago finished cross-stitch piece that I'd never done anything with.   A quick hunt through the batik FQ's found this green that worked with both pieces.   Remaining poppy fabric with a little more of the green batik and I had the backing pieced for the snack mat.  It's all quilted now, but I need to decide what to bind it in.   Don't have enough of the FQ left to use that, so the decision will have to wait till I have time for it or till I'm distracted again. 

And yes, distractions a-plenty abound around here.....I've got about 18 or so more cross-stitch pieces this size pulled for mug rugs or snack mats...I really need blinders on to stay focused...lol.

Gratitudes:
1. Spring like weather is here in Wyoming.  =)

2. Scraps, scraps and more scraps to have fun with.

Your idea of spring in that freezing place, or real spring? LOL That looks great together! Distractions are good sometimes. It's a rest from the needs.
