Temptation

DSCF1664a

My honest plan for the day is to clean the house.  Really.  I have a bucket all ready, and I’m going to clean this place.  Any minute now.  Just let me finish my row. 

I’m having about ten ideas for a striped sweater using blanket leftovers.  Tunic-length cardigan with giant shawl collar and crochet edging!  Long coat with hood and bell sleeves!  Tight cardi with three-quarter sleeves and jewel neckline! 

Stop it.  I’m cleaning.  Today.  Seriously!

It’s too tempting.  Maybe I’ll clean tomorrow.

  8. Housework? HOUSEWORK?? Boring, no sooner it's done than someone comes along and makes it dirty again! Crochet and knitting are much more fun!
