I love being productive. No- I really need to be productive. In fact, if I am not being productive it troubles me. David tells me I'm squirrely when I am in hyper-productive-multitasking mode. I can't ever just sit and relax, unless I am having a glass of wine/coffee and chatting but even then my wheels are turning and I inevitably start fretting about the things I could be getting done. I envy people that can just be, and that's pretty much everyone in my life. I wonder if that's how Martha feels? I wonder why my house is never clean like Martha's. OK, I'm starting to get a little antsy so let's move on to crafts.
I made lots of things yesterday, and almost none that I can share today except for these pumpkins.

I got the pattern here . They took less than 1/2 hour from start to finish! I'll give them to my mom on Thanksgiving. Mom and Frank are having a sad week, it looks like their beloved dog Patrick may have liver cancer. They have had him for as long as I've had Sammy (13 years) and they love him just as much.
In between crafts I did tons of laundry and this blanket was in with Julia's bedding. I crocheted this while I was pregnant with her.

The summer of '99 was one long heatwave and I was completely miserable. When I wasn't floating in the pool I was making this blanket, it seems so much longer than 7 years ago. Anyway, I thought I would share a picture of this much loved blanket.
Today is "Deere John" quilt day after church and a trip to Joann fabrics. Wish me luck or at least productivity :)
