Do, Did, Done



My never ending to do list seems to grow and grow and grow. I get exhausted looking at it sometimes. However, this past week I did manage to finish my bookclub book, The Thirteenth Tale, which, by the way was very good. I got a makeover done to my website thanks to the wonderful team at Cottage Collections . I just love all the new colors and font. Check it out The Raspberry Rabbits . I finally made up my mind on what direction I want to head with my textile art and above are two of my new pieces that I just finished. They are soft, simple and oh so cottage. Of course they feature my favorite things, Rabbits and Roses. I'll have lots of pretty new goodies in the next couple of weeks featuring other critters, cottages and of course lovely roses. Be sure to check back often.

So that about finishes up that one particular list. I needed to do it, I did it and now it's done. Of course, the other 16 lists are still waiting in the background shouting out loud "Pick Me! Pick Me! Uhhh, the problems of being a hyper, overachiever that doesn't sleep. It could be worse though, I could be BORED!

Have a great week. Hugs,

Shell
This week IGF my friend Michelle coming home and floating in her pool yesterday for a whole entire hour.

The wall hangings are so pretty, nice work. I can honestly say I've never been bored either. I could never understand anyone who doesn't know what to do with themselves. Life's too short, gotta fit everything in!

Your website is great, and I love your Hare-Brained Ideas. It is so you. How you speak, how you present yourself. Everything we do does involve the heart, n'est-ce pas?
Oh, I am having a blog contest, so please join in.
How is Chunky Bunny? Have you got him on the carrot on a string circuit training yet?
