packing the work of hands

packing sewing and quilt making fabric
and boxes of cards and graph papper 
of designs for various projects

sometimes I feel as though
I  have the attention span
of an amnesiac gnat
flit  flit  flit

many projects of great wiorth
that haven’t made it off
the drawing board
in 12 years or more

and a quilt top than only lacks backing and quilting
pieced and hand sewn
in the late ‘70’s

seeing them all
makes me want to get back
to doing them

I haven’t done any quilt making
in years -  not since I returned 
to knitting lace

and I still have trillions of beads
to pack up
from my bead work days

enough to keep me occupied
for at least 1000 years

between items of the Mind
and work of hands
I wouldn’t have even a femtosecond
of boredom
