And from the "What the HELL?" category......

It's V's birthday, so we are having a party. So, I make my list.

groceries
laundry
clean the fridge
guest list
make desserts
make floating candles
completely redo the entire bathroom......

"What the hell?"

Perhaps I should just frame out a new addition to the house while I am at it? No, let's stick to taking down wallpaper.






Oh, yeah. I think I may have overstretched it this time just a little. It's a problem I have. Just one more thing to add to the little list of things to do before the weekend....never mind that it is a job that should take a couple of weeks. (or in my case several months due to my flitting attention span) I just get distracted easily.....that's all. Hauntingly similar to the way I prepare to leave for an overnight gig in another town. I must complete a year's worth of housework in one hour. I dunno. Perhaps I am unwittingly punishing myself for not having done it, oh, say, two years ago. Oh, did I mention I almost caught my hair on fire?????? That's me. Sharonarooni the Great Human Tiki Torch. But back to the wall.......as I peel wallpaper and cuss........what do I see but this little morsel of what is actually underneath.





NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!



On a brighter note-borders are coming along on my Pennants Quilt.





And Elizabeth I.




I know. Not exactly eye candy, is it? I never claimed to be a photographer....only the owner of a camera. I am working both sleeves together because we all know about my attention span now....and my affinity for leaving projects with one arm done. It will not happen this time. I swear it. :0)

Discernable objects in the pictures is all I ever lay claim to. Liz looks good! Is she that plum color?

Uh oh about the bathroom. Look! Pretty Kaffe quilt.

Heh, that's why I always cast on for the 2nd sleeve right away, otherwise I fool myself into thinking I'll "get to it".

Beautiful quilt! My sister is a quilter, and she would love it.
