Mending Sucks

When I think about all the great stuff I could be making, it really frustrates me.  It’s so boring!!!  It all started when Sweetums found some zippered sweat shirts that he liked.  The sleeves were about an inch too long.  “No problem”, I said.  As long as I was mending, I might as well fix some other stuff that has been laying around.  I went to the ‘Wall of Shelves’ nd started pulling things out.  Boy, was that a mistake.  It’s been about two weeks so far and I’m still working on it.   I should be finished and on to something fun.  The problem is, I keep putting it off.  There’s always something else that needs my attention.  I am such a procrastinator.  Is that a word?

I have also decided to give lampshade making a try.  I tried fixing this eighty or ninty year old one, but it kind of fell apart.  Since it looked homemade to begin with, I decided to give it a try. 

I could only find an appropriate weight and texture paper in white or black, but it’s hard to tell what the original color was anyway.  Cutting was hard, but punching the holes is worse.  About six or eight is all that I can manage at a time.
