Need I say more? I still haven't finished rooting out the workroom. This morning I went in with good intentions. At least I don't need a shovel and a rake anymore. Just a waste basket and good intentions...
I tend to get sidetracked every time I come across something interesting, unfinished or even not started. I stop to play, to take breaks or get a snack every once in a while.
This morning it was a drawer full of House of Miniatures kits, both unfinished and not started. I grabbed one for a daybed and decided to play with it. I got it in my head that it didn't need to be "authentic" like the box said. I took all of the pieces out, grabbed a foot and started carving.
I got as far as a claw and ball foot on one of the side legs and some fluting started on the knee. Neither got finished. Tessie came in and asked what I was going to do with it....She spoiled it for me. I had no idea what I was going to do with it....It was just for my own amusement.
A severe lecture on wasting time ensued. I don't think that she liked it. She didn't even try to claim it for herself. She just demanded that I get back to work. No fun at all.
I did get as far as dragging out unfinished needlework. Look what I found. There were a couple of pieces of mini bargello and a piece of crewel work from a long time ago. It was going to be a bedspread....I made the mistake of drawing it on the fabric with one of those disappearing ink pens for sewing. Not a good idea when you aren't going to finish the piece in a few days time. It's only been ten years or more...Now my only problem is trying to remember what it looked like before it all faded away....Unfortunately, I never made an original sketch. I just did it on the linen. Live and learn.
I do believe that one of these days I am going to sit down and try to figure that piece out. I keep having visions of a four poster bed with that on top.
Oh well...Not today. Tessie said so. I am supposed to be in there doing more cleaning now....
Don't tell! I think that I will go find something else to play with. I'm in that kind of a mood.
See you tomorrow.
