While surfing this morning... a hard thing to do in Canada when it is freezing ice on the driveway and temperature high will be 6 degrees C ... no, blog surfing...

I went to Em's Scrapbag who I follow and from there to www.13woodhouseroad.com/ where Shruti Dandekar has a great blog and giveaways. One of the ways to enter the giveaway is to become a follower.... the other was harder ... to link to a post of how you organize your WIPS.

Now I love to organize. In fact it calms me somewhat. It is my go to activity when I am agitated and feel out of control. So you think that my house would be uber organized. Not so. It seems it has to degrade to a point where it is so bad it has to be done from the bottom up. My sewing room is no exception. And it is weird that  sew less when it it disorganized and it gets disorganized when I am under pressure to get things done. And it seems I get things down under a deadline. Who knows what that means to a psychologist! 

But  I digress... So I did c…

What kind of writer am I like....

I have a friend Madame Samm Sew I Quilt who  is a very talented creative person. She is now managing TWO blogs... the one above and has taken over at Stash Manicure Stash Manicure she is amazing at finding things. On her site today she had a challenge to find out what author you are like. I am apparently like

I write like Cory Doctorow
Now I didn't even know who this is... and I read a lot! So I went to Amazon to find out who he is and he (or could be a she) writes science fiction for teens.  What  a hoot since we are science fiction geeks. Star trek, Stat Gate, Dr. Who etc.  
It used to bother me that my family was a bit odd. Now I embrace it! We laugh a lot here. We are a family that laughs about been geeks.  That is why I chose sewinggeek for my blog. We love information! It is very fitting that my writing style is like Cory Doctorow. Maybe I will have to read one of his books.  I can't for the life of my see that my friend Samm writes like Stephen King. She is not gory, or horro…

Play Day Postponed...

With a play day cancelled  postponed until next week... I am taking stock and regrouping.
The fact is that I run on deadlines and procrastinate the rest of the time. Either that or I take on to many deadlines or have to many hobbies. lol
So last night I went into my lair and started to straighten up from the mess that I had created before Christmas.
Since I spent most of my holidays with a virus (two weeks and holding...) I really didn't get stuff done and away. Just do what is needed and go back to bed...
I had a great time last night... not with my Quilty friends (although I did miss that too!) but I had a date with my stuff - Dr. Who and Magnum P.I. I can't listen to anything intellectual or that I have to pay attention to when I am in my room because often my mind drifts. So books on tape do not work because I lose where I am in the story.
So back to the basement I will go until I get the job done.
From this exercise I have learned...

When I create - I create a mess but I can not…
