Thinking But Not Doing

So I’ve been thinking about doing something. Writing something that is. Something that I don’t sit down and bang out on the fly. Something that is well thought out and coherent. Something that requires planning. Planning… right. So all I have to do is organize my thoughts a little. Maybe on a piece of paper with a pen. I’ve been thinking about it for about three days now and have yet to make a move.  Par for the course I guess.

Meanwhile, we’re still right smack dab in the middle of baby doll madness.  Chase pulled one out of a box in the basement today and demanded to have it.  Of course the new baby needed a blanket to be wrapped in so she gently reminded me that I promised to make her a blanket out of some Dora fabric that I bought her as a bribe one day in the fabric department at Wal Mart.  Wait, I can explain!  It’s not what it sounds like… except that it is.  So I told her I’d do it.  She was concerned that it wouldn’t be soft enough but I introduced her to my, ahem, small collection of textiles.  I could see in her eyes that she wanted to scream ‘it’s like a fabric store right in the house! And ‘Why didn’t you tell me about this before?!’.

We found a few things that we thought might work and she was picked from those choices.  She chose a little piece of some off white pre-quilted stuff that I got from Freecycle.  Don’t worry I’m not doing THAT anymore.  I fully acknowledge that I’m the one that needs to post stuff on Freecycle, but I digress.  It’s nothing fancy.  It’s not even particularly cute what with the Dora’s all over it but it’s functional and she was pleased.  I think i might surprise her with a little matching pillow.
