So little time

Here's what I did after work to-night:
-knitted while watching news
-37 min on inside bike
-20 min weights and stretching
-checked email
-I did not yet pack lunch and clean up kitchen (husband is working to-night)

How does one find time to sew after that????
I sewed two borders on my pillow(10 minutes)- no pictures yet. I did, however, take a picture of the fabric that I ordered from:

It's a collection of 2 1/2" strips by Kaffe Fassett. I'm very excited as it's not something I can find around here. They'll be lots of daydreaming about what to do with it.

The next photo is of a piece of paper cloth that I tried last week. It's not how I expected it to look, but I guess that's part of the process. I really wanted a more chocolaty brown. I find it's a little muddy looking. I'll play with it anyway to see what I can come up with. I'm planning on using a piece for a postcard exchange so I won't picture it any further until the exchange is done-- that's if I use it. The silver is done with Shiva Paintstick before adding the paint.
