Getting No Where Fast

Have you ever spent a day where you are doing, doing, doing but not getting a thing done??? That's the kind of day I'm having.
I did finish these cute little luggage tags. I saw them on Elaine Adair's blog and thought they would make great little gifts. Well I discovered I was late in a swap so I finished these 4 up and packaged them up along with my swap items and sent them off in the mail. I have 4 others pieced and several more blocks printed off to paper piece and turn into tags. I got the designs out of Carol Doak's 300 Paper Pieced Quilt Blocks.
Then I did some housework and played online for a while. After scolding myself for wasting so much time, I finally loaded the Crayon Box quilt onto the frame. I had to cut batting, bobbins were already filled and now I am quilting--just a meander--and can only do a row at a time. Then rest the knee. While resting, I made vet appointments for the dogs, folded clothes, planned my menu for the week and deleted a bunch of shows from the DVR list.
Now I need to get dinner started. Leftover baked chicken turned into chicken burritos and spanish rice. Yumm... I could eat pizza or Mexican food every day of the week if Hubby wouldn't complain. But he will so we won't!

Those are just about the cutest little things - I love them!!!! So many ideas about how to use them besides just for luggage.

Just skimming through your blog and see you tried out these luggage tags. My sister hangs them on her doorknobs, and cabinets and brags about how clever her sister (me) is! I never would have thought about hanging them like that! SHE is so clever. Wouldn't they be good as a Happy Birthday Card, etc.?
