I always get distracted when The Baby is home.  Not a bad distracted, just distracted.

I am normally a very scheduled person.  Wake up at 7:30 a.m., pee at 7:31 a.m., drink coffee at 7:33 a.m., eat breakfast at 8:43 a.m., walk dog at 9:00 a.m.  You get the idea!

When The Baby is home, most of that goes out of the window!  I still wake up, pee and have coffee at my regularly schedule times.  Then the schedule veers off a little. 

This morning I made Pecan Pie Muffins

Baking in the morning is not normally on my very long list of things to do.  Don't laugh, but I have a notebook that I keep lists in.  It is the only way I can function

Yesterday, I had good intentions of conquering my list.  The morning was going well, and then The Baby started to watch a movie.  Her movie of choice was "The Hangover 2."  This movie is a bit raunchy, but also funny.   Although I had seen it before, it kept luring me in.  I finally gave up, sat in a chair and watched the movie with her.

She will kill me if she finds out I used this photo!  See my cute pup?
I did, however, get some work done yesterday. 

I finally finished the "Block from H..L" and with that, finished the Tossed Nine-Patch quilt that I started in September of last year. 

Eleanor Burns Tossed Nine Patch

If you remember, I was living in a hotel room for 2 months at that time and was not a happy camper.  I love this quilt, but I must admit, when I see it, I think of Country Inn and Suites.  Perhaps that is a good name for it.

The Baby was feeling well enough to hold the quilt up for me for this photo.  I am thinking I will make a border out of muslin to match the little squares inside the blocks.  What do you think?  I want the 30's fabric to shine, not the border.

I also finished up a couple of American Girl Doll outfits.  These are being made in preparation for my etsy shop opening. 

I really love this turquoise outfit.

White cotton capri pants and turquoise and white top and kerchif

Capri pants and tank top for 18 inch dolls

18 inch doll denim skirt

That was my yesterday.  Oh yeah, I watched Master Chef.  Are any of you addicted to that show too?  Hope you had a great day. 

Pin It Now!

Oh, where do I start??? Lists? Check. I have them all over the place. I have lists of lists. I love the Hangover movies, which is ironic, since I don't usually like slapstick type of comedies, but these I like. The muffins - did you REALLY have to post that? Especially when I don't have any pecans in the house? And we are soooo addicted to Master Chef! Christine is a true inspiration!

Ok, I'm done... ;)

I think Distracted should be my middle name. I don't know what happened to my ability to focus, so like you, I make lists. Not every day, but often enough. Amazing how it helps, as you know.

Well, I poked over to check out that recipe because, wow, those look muffins look good. I love me some pecan pie. I think I could modify it so it would be gluten free and dairy free. Put that on my to do list, maybe around the holidays, LOL.

The AG clothes are really cute! Nice job on the quilty finish too.

I laughed my butt off at The Hangover, but I haven't seen II yet. Glad to hear you liked it.

Hi Cynthia! I feel like I've been distracted all summer. The kids head back to school next week and, at that point, I have a to-do list a mile long! Love the AG clothes. My girls would love them!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog. So glad I bumped into you on SITS! :) --Christine
