Ok, I know there's recent research about how multi-tasking isn't effective, but I kinda feel like it doesn't take into account those of us who have families or multiple responsibilities. I've always loved multi-tasking. My brain would get bored if I couldn't move between projects as inspiration struck, and I get lots more done when I have multiple projects going at the same time. Some things I can do over my lunch hour, like cutting out fabric. Others need to happen at home, like selecting fabric from my stash and fusing pieces down. When I have multiple projects going, that means I always have something to work on when I have a spare five minutes. I sew sleeves during my son's Aikido class, I cut fabric while helping him with homework, and I trim threads while waiting for appointments. So, here's a taste of all the things I have going at the moment.

|My attempt at ripples. Not sure if it's quite done. Maybe. This one will be ready for Paradise City.|
