     Sometimes I have the beginnings of a blog post in my head.  Or maybe, not quite the beginnings, but little pieces, here and there.  And in my head they are just how I feel and what I want to say, when I did not even know I had wanted to say anything in the first place.  And usually I discover these bits and pieces while driving in the car, or on a walk or in some other completely blog inconvenient time and place, but I think to myself, that's ok, it's a good start, and when I get a chance to sit down and think and write, these bits and pieces will be there, and I will be able to place them in an order and a context that makes sense.  And I think, hmmm... I was maybe going to work on that pattern I have been planning during this afternoon's nap, but now I think I will blog, because these little pieces deserve their space and time.

     And then, I have the space and time and the little pieces have gone into hiding.  Or they are hanging out on the edge and do not want to get into an order or a context that makes sense.

     So fine, little pieces, hang out on that edge, I will hit save on that post about how my creative sewing inspiration is changing as the people and babies that I love are getting older and definitely now that I get to spend my days and nights with the baby that I love the most.  That one will have to wait until another day.  You have missed your chance, little pieces.

     And sometimes, I may just be procrastinating taking the first real step on a project I am excited about, but don't really know how to start, and I should just pick up the ruler and tracing paper and scissors and get to work.

Don't judge my handwriting!
What are you procrastinating these days and what super important thing (other than reading my blog) are you doing in the process?

P.S.  Annie has been asleep for an hour and I just realized the Raffi Pandora station is still playing on my phone.

  1. love this post. I think it is good to have space and time to sketch out bits and bobs of ideas. It is equally good to have moments of procrastination. love seeing your sketches out there on paper! xo
