What to do when it's all too much: Blow it off!

The dishes in the sink were chanting my name. The mountain of clean laundry on the dining room table was making fun of me. The overdue library books on the entry table (already!?) spoke volumes.

I knew it was time to bring out the big guns: I plugged in the sewing machine and made a new tote out of the Sheets of Utter Fabulousness. This one is for a friend, so I was tickled pink when it came out well. And in case you were worried, the dishes, the laundry, and the library books were still waiting for me when I was through.

  1. Sounds so much like my day yesterday...only I took a nana-nap instead of doing *anything* useful!!
    Great tote btw - love the fabric :-)

  2. Yes, when your world is crumbling, sew something completely miscellaneous!

    I like to cover school books in plastic when it all gets too much.

    The tote is grand!

  3. Oh yes, all the housework will always be there!! Love Posie

  4. Great post Wendy!
    Love the bag so much.

  5. Good for you! Take a break to enjoy the things worth enjoying!
    I can relate to your dishes and laundry. I once saw a Tshirt that read "Procrastinators: Leaders of Tomorrow" ....and that just about sums up my approach :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment...it makes me feel a little less like I'm talking to myself again.
