A Pot, a Pan, a Spoon, a Hat

edit: I found out it is supposed to be A Pot, a Pan, a Broom, a Hat.. but I figured this was close enough, and everyone who guessed got it right, except Mr. S who thought I was going to give away a million dollars... haha! I wish I could! It is from Fiddler on the Roof. My well-educated readers weren't even stumped.

Anyone know where my title is from? If you guess it right, I might send you a prize. I just said that and typed it without any sort of giveaway plan or what I might do or send. So take your chances. But send me your guesses.

I’ve been trying to do some sewing when I’m not working, too tired, away from home, taking a nap, doing church activities, watching television, attending a meeting and/or staring into space. I have gotten a little bit done.

A pillow for the boutique at church.

*Finally* got binding on this quilt. It will be sent to NYC for a program that helps people newly in housing after being homeless.

Made my September Lotto blocks for Sunshine. I meant to make more, but my motivation was low. (Small block is for Tammy to keep.)

My new job has been interesting so far. There is so much to learn! I’m still in training. There is an amazing amount of stuff to learn. Have I said that enough times? There sure is a lot to learn!!! It’ll be a while before I feel like a pro in this new job. All the learning is exhausting my brain. I’ve been really tired.

Have to go to another meeting tonight. I’m tired and don’t want to!! Waahhhh! I’m an irritable child tonight. Goodbye!

I didn't know the reference but it sounds pretty jaunty anyway :)

Hope the learning curve eases up a bit next week. Those sharp curves are definitely exhausting.

Love the donation quilt! And the pillow, and the blocks.

I thought Fiddler too, but had difficulty with getting the head to actually name it.
OMG, but I love that quilt. Do you know that you often have African colour type quilts that pop to go with the love of giraffes? This reminds me once again of Botswana.
Lovely lovely quilt.

Well I cheated and googled your title. The #1 response on google is that it is from a blog called Giraffe Dreams. Some lady is giving away a million dollar cash prize to who ever correctly identifies the source.

Doing a quick albeit lazy look I did not find a source. If I could win that prize, then I could sing:

If I were a rich man,
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
If I were a wealthy man.
I wouldn't have to work hard.

The quilt is manly, very nice.
