the queen of procrastination

oh yes my dear friends that title suits me very well, right now i have 11 reports waiting to be written but instead i am here in front of this puter (kids speak for computer) typing about my new promise. i want to relinquish the crown and am sure that i will have many of you gorgeous gals vying for the title of Queen Procrastinator. i wont be giving it up easily, oh no you have to earn it by telling me what you do to put off doing what you really have to? when i was at college i would even CLEAN THE CUPBOARDS instead of writing the 2000 word essay due the next day!!! that is desperate i know!

does anyone remember this guy??

i started him, oooooohhh maybe a year ago???? i named him pablo and i am hoping to turn him into a pillow!! i am sure the lovely linda will help me when i get to that stage :) *fluttering my eyelashes while begging* well to get out of this rut and lose the title, i am promising to finish a feather a night (bit like a granny a day)( no not finishing a granny but a granny square! crocheting that is)

i had just learnt how to blanket stitch, still learning really....

i will only be stitching on the nights i don't have to work so for you mathematicians out there i have 17 left so in under a month this baby should be ready to stuff!!

and to prove my procrastination... i made these two last night instead of reports or feather stitching!! ( lucky i have a very understanding teaching partner)

and if you want to see a bit more about these sweet brooches head over to my other blog. and the other thing i think i might start is 'the wiggles diet'... what is the wiggles diet i hear you ask? well after watching those very thin men jump around on stage and my 3 year old making me join in... i just might lose the 3 kgs i am desperate to shift! now i just better listen to the blue wiggy and just eat fruit :) smooches and best wishes for a fantastic weekend.

I know you are keen to pass on that crown Rosey but I'm afraid you can't pass it my way. I am the exact opposite... more like the energizer bunny really. Always trying to do too much but it take sall sorts to make up our world and i wish I could relax more and take things as they come.

Good luck with your one feather a night - you'll get there. I lov eyour cute little brooches too.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

hehehehe did you say you were going to stuff the turkey??? Oh that is so funny..have amused myself! I would like to tell you about what I do when I procrastinate ( is it a nice crown by the way sparkly and glittery?) anyhoo I will tell you as soon as I stop playing on the computer!
Kerryanne and Kylie, you make me feel inadequate, maybe it is something to do with a name starting with a K yes that must be it...
Speak to you soon,
Kiss Noises Kinda

Haha, I have to admit I also procrastinate too much! It's a wonder I get anything crafted at all. I LOVE your peacock though, I hope you finish it! :)
