What a mouthful of a word! It's a wonder we procrastinators haven't come up with a shortened version. But then, that would mean less time talking and more time to actually do something, wouldn't it?
Well, I admit it. I am a Procrastinator. Big time!
My most recent example of this began on New Year's Eve about midday....
DH and I had decided not to go to any of the tempting parties we were invited to, so that we could get an early night and an early start on NYDay, instead of sleeping 'til midday and then just lying around all day. DH headed off to work on the Set of a filming project he is involved with, while I decided to make a start on the tax bookwork. (Yeah, right!)
I really wanted to start a new quilt project, but after having started the UFO Challenge , I had already decided that only UFOs were going to be done for the next 3 months, at least (apart from Christmas Challenge commitments).
I had also decided, no quilting until the books were done!
So, just to stop me from quilting, I decided our old bathroom needed a good scrub. I have hated that bathroom for years now, but between weddings and other things, we haven't been able to allocate money to a complete renovation. With the thought in mind that "one day", scrubbing regularly is about all I have committed to.
BUT, this particular day was different!
Until 3am Jan 1st, then again all NYDay, and on and off since,
I have scrubbed the bathroom twice,
scraped out all the old grungy grout from the wall tiles,
scraped out old glue on the shower screens and re done them,
and have started to regrout the bathroom floor!
Next, I'm going to repaint the remaining part of the walls,
sand back the painted parts of the vanity and repaint,
attach new handles to said vanity
buy a new mirrored medicine cabinet or get new mirrors put on the old one,
then call in the plumber to do new taps,
and then ,get the bath recoated!
If I can't have a new renovation, then at least I'll have a revampation! (sounded funkier than just revamp!)
How's that for procrastination? ROFL
Anyway, here's a photo of the old floor tiles, followed by a photo of the newly regrouted ones. I forgot to take before and after photos of the other stuff.
I bought these 2 patterns from Christine. She was having a cull. "Gidget" was one of the first quilts that I fell in love with, but the local Shop only had the pattern available to those doing the class. I didn't really want to make he whole thing, just learn the techniques. Besides, I didn't really have the time to do the classes. I had forgotten about it, until I saw Christine's pattern for sale.
I also bought 2 new bag patterns to join all the other bag patterns I have yet to make up! DD wants both of these...
And a pattern for the Noriko bag that I downloaded from Lazygirldesigns.
I had bought a few copies of this pattern from Elizabeth in Canada, in December, so I have also been looking at fabric with this in mind. (One copy went to my Angel in the SCQ swap, and one copy is going to be a giveaway on this blog later)
I haven't chosen the fabric yet, but while I was searching, I did find these 2 lovely Fairy Frost FQ bundles from The Fatquartershop in the States. They really needed to be seen to be auditioned, so I had to order them. No, really... I did need to see them before buying yardage! Stop laughing!
This bundle is called 'Blushing',
and this one, 'Iris'.
(Shshsh....I have also ordered the Green bundle and the Yellow bundle.....)
And what am I doing today? Well, I should be finishing the bathroom floor, but, instead, I am busy scanning patterns and fabric and posting on my blog!
Happy Procrastinating Everyone!
