JUST SAY NO!!

I am at the computer, having restricted myself from working on the sewing room until I finish a presentation I have due on March 19th.  If you knew that I was a master procrastinator, you might ask, "Why are you starting the presentation so early when you could start it on the 18th??"  And I might answer that I have a grandchild due this month and I have to keep my calendar open so that I can fly to see him at a moments notice.......This is the 4th presentation I have made to the Rio Grand Imaging Society and the 4th time I have been unable to say "No" when they ask me to present again.  This is the same group who gave me a scholarship when I was a student so you see why it is hard for me to say that little word.  Not only that but when the research is done and presented, I believe I'm the one who gets the most from it.....
So now I must "Just say No" to the urge to go back to the sewing room project. (I did manage to get one more day with the project though........I told myself I had to start working on the presentation yesterday...and then I told myself I had to start working on the presentation by noon today.......it is 12:48 and I am blogging instead.........)
So now all the excuses have run out and I must get to it..........but here is a photo of my first project in the yet unfinished sewing room.....shortening the curtains for the window........
Well if you'll excuse me now.......I have a date with PowerPoint..............

We seem to be on the same time schedule, i.e. later. And later. And later. I enjoy your blogs so please keep that on your calendar.

Help! Help! My button jar is a mess! By the way, did you find the 2 inch buttons you might have? This might be a good excuse for you to straighten out YOUR button jar.
