Ooh, Shiny Things...

Some days I swear I have ADD, or maybe months...  It's been quite some time since I blogged, mostly because there is a certain sameness to my days:  work elsewhere, work in my mill, get further behind on housework, life is pretty good actually.

Today, I had good intentions of finishing the laundry from last week, doing this week's laundry, picking up/dusting living room and dining room, vacuuming, cleaning both bathrooms and tidying up the kitchen.  What actually happened in the housekeeping department?  Only 2 loads of laundry done, 1 in dryer, another in washer, set up Roomba in living room, sort of tidied up kitchen (already can't tell), dusted (sort of) the living room.

What else did I do?  When picking up, I actually put away some yarn that I won at last week's auction at our spinning guild.  However, one item I won was a bag of yarn that needed some TLC.  Of course, doing that was preferable to housework.  Off and on, that kept me busy for quite some time.

Then I got distracted from that when the doorbell rang.  It was our intrepid (and tiny) postal worker.  She had left a box for me.  Must. Open. Now.  It was from Interweave.  I had finally made up my mind to replace my old paper issues of Spin-Off with DVDs and they went on sale last week.  I didn't think that I would be a fan of reading them on the computer, but I am hooked:  instant page turning, the Table of Contents is all linked, just click and go right to where you want, zoom in/out, etc.  I may even try doing electronic subscription next year.

I've often said that I am the world's most distractible housekeeper and today just added more proof to that claim.

I like shiny things! BUT I am trying to find a pattern that I've seen on Pinterest that leads back to you. It's a particularly attractive Gingerbread Man/Boy. Is there a pattern?? If so, can you please direct me to it.
