Well? What squirrels have you chased during April? I was unable to for a few reasons I'm not getting into. Suffice it to say that real life took up a lot of time and tromped a bit on our spirits this past month, but we are muddling along and doing okay! Thank you for all the kind words and behind the scenes chats with you, my dear friends. Two things I stumbled upon while doing some cleaning and moving stuff due to renovations, which are causing a bit of the behind the scenes angst, were worth photographing and videotaping for this very post! I think my friends and family know my squirrelly, distracted nature, more than I realize.
This is a black slate, I believe, coaster my mum gave me many years ago, like when I lived at home still. So it's easily 35+ years old. Yep, those are tea stains on it that did not come off with a cloth and warm water, so will try baking soda next! With this much-loved, though not at all realized WHAT animal it was, coaster, come on into the squirrel-chasing realm...
I think I've mentioned how Mum used to say, "eee, Sandra, you'd forget yer 'ead if it weren't screwed on!" because I was a bit of (ha) okay a lot of, an absent-minded professor, easily distracted. Menopause seems to exacerbate it, or bring that squirrel-chasing nature, back!
Last month you wonderful squirrel-grabber-nabbers showed off your bounty so well.
Anne Marie, of Stories from the Sewing Room, had the sweetest, perfect example of a 'throw every plan out the window and make this now!' project:
Diann of Little Penguin Quilts had a purple and green spring-themed DrEAMi! too. Seeing this display has me wanting to make some more of my own! Like she said, one can never have too many pincushions.
Well, show off your prowess below, and you'll probably have some of us ADD quilters chasing your squirrel too!
One more wee squirrel... (affiliate link) just in case you need inspiration... Personally I think this is better than the free weekends Craftsy used to do.
