I find myself easily distracted these days. I know I have a cardigan to knit and a dress to sew, but everything else is so appealing.
I was supposed to be defrosting the freezer. I thought I'd fit in a bit of cleaning. Whilst plugging in the vacuum cleaner, I remembered I wanted to photograph the fat quarters I bought in Hobbycraft (yesterday's post).
I wanted to style them nicely (I'm trying to improve my photography skills) so I thought I'd include a pretty doily.
I went in search of a doily, not just any doily, one that would be right for the photo. I have a lot of crochet doilies, mostly made by me, and I thought, maybe I should reorganise them all better in the drawer where they are kept. I took them all out and at the bottom of the drawer I found a crocheted rectangular tray cloth I must have made way back when, probably in the 1970s.
It's quite a nice design, but rectangles aren't my favourite shape. Then I thought, maybe I could re-crochet this and make it into a square shape instead (still not my favourite shape but better than rectangles).
So I started calculating stitches and examining the construction. But then the doorbell rang. My lovely next-door neighbour had picked some plums from her garden for me. What a delight!
So it's out with the cookery books and what shall I make with the plums. Meanwhile the freezer is busy defrosting it's ice all over the kitchen floor and the cleaning isn't doing itself.
If my husband asks, I'm multi-tasking, just between you and me, I think I'm a little distracted.
