Do you ever think about how much your productivity would increase if only there were more of you to go around? To say that I think about this a great deal would not be an exaggeration. I wouldn't need that many more of me, really, I think an additional three would be sufficient. If there were four of me running about, I could get so much done.
I have been doing some crafting here and there, but I have set things aside for the most part to, literally, get my house in order. When your children become so accustomed to pulling their daily outfits from laundry bins in the hallway next to the washer and dryer instead of furniture purchased specifically for the purpose of storing clothes, perhaps it is time to re-think one's priorities (don't even get me started on th dust accumulation--coincidentally, I have noticed our new house gets dustier faster than the old one; or not, I could be making that up, but it seems like more dust to me and I find the whole thing irksome).
While I have been sneaking in knitting sporadically here and there. Any significant time that I can devote to the art of making lately has gone into sewing, or really quilting, well, no, if we are being technically accurate, sewing.
As I was cutting up squares to make a baby quilt, or two, really, it occurred to me that I have a total of fourteen quilts in process right now (not counting the two new baby quilts I started cutting squares for). Most of those quilts are really just quilt tops in various stages of completion. The tops need to be finished, and things need to be sandwiched and then things need to be quilted (and then binding applied, etcetera).
I am thinking that my sewing life will be greatly improved by the newest addition to my household (because as Little Sir so eloquently stated, "you really need a new sewing machine, Mommy." Of course, when he said it, it was probably infused with more sarcasm and less cuteness). So while I don't have the ability to self-replicate. Technology can, indeed, make my life easier...or at least, that's what they tell me.
If you are of the Easter-celebrating fold, Happy Easter. I am anticipating egg-citing activities in my household this weekend, and then, it's back to the making of things...I do have fourteen (plus two) quilts in the works, afterall.
