I've been tagged

Erica has tagged me so I guess I need to respond.

These are the rules...
1. When tagged, place the name of the person and URL on your blog.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write 7 things about yourself.
4. Name 7 of your favorite bloggers.
5. Send e-mail letting those bloggers know they have been tagged.

Here are 7 things about me:

1. I am a champion procrastinator. Almost anything will serve as an excuse for not getting down to whatever I need to do - uni essay (fortunately long in the past), exhibition item, workshop sample . . . Cleaning the toilet, sweeping up leaves, doing the probably unnecessary washing are all excuses not to buckle down.

2. With a deadline looming I become more creative. Whatever ideas I had tend to be discarded or modified and a new concept demands attention. Unfortunately these ideas are often too complex to carry out in the available time!

3. My favourite time waster is reading, though the computer comes a close second.

4. I am still going to water aerobics and trying to do 10000 steps a day. Not too successful with the steps.

5. I love cats, but have not yet found one to take the place of Squeek who died at 17 and a half years of age a couple of years ago.

6. I am currently spending a lot of time on the Melville Community Textile Art Project. The deadline is March 28th - see item 2 above. Fortunately I am just an assistant: Juliet and Iris have to come up with the ideas.

7. I have just unearthed a quilt top that resulted from an internet swap in 1996 (or 1995 - I think I still have the details somewhere). I will put on some borders and display it at the Scquilters' Retreat in May. Could be the oldest UFO!

I am supposed to tag 7 other people. I mostly lurk on other people's blogs so I hope I will be forgiven for tagging Annie, Andrea, Brenda, Dijanne, Linda, Maureen and
Pam .

This post has taken me ages - I hope I don't get tagged again any time soon!!

Hi Joan - I'm going to decline the tag but you can see my response to this meme back on 29 February 2008.

oops - I didn't even know I had been tagged way back here - until NOW (over a year later! lol) ... I am meant to get e-mailed any comments on my blog, but I must have missed out on that one (or maybe I just missed seeing it?) - I only found it now because I was looking for when I had posted a picture of something to my blog, and got side tracked reading comments on a post and found yours! ... probably a good thing I didn't notice at the time really - because now it is a bit too late to bother, and most bloggers I know/read have either done that one/something simialar more than once already ... or they hate the things and don't do them - LOL
actually I did get tagged for another "7 things about you" thing sometime, and posted my 7 things about me - ah in March 2008 - was probably the same one doing the rounds of the same group of us! ... not sure if I ever got around to actually leaving comments to tell the people I had tagged them though - LOL
btw, your #1 and 2 also apply to me ... and #5 sort of, except her name was Pixel and we still had another cat, and a dog ... but Pixel was definitely one of a kind.
(er ... this comment is probably longer than your post!)
