Best of Intentions.....September 22, 2015

You would think in a period of 24 hours, the very least that could have been accomplished was to iron the backing and the quilt top chosen yesterday.


3.2 mile walk.

Lunch at Uno's after the walk  - which went fairly well until the lunch crowd decided to have lunch with two elderly walkers in sweats....aka. myself and dearest husband.  Goodness, women still wear heels. 

I digress.

In lieu of preparing quilt top and backing....

 8 of 10 small blocks were framed.  Partial seams.  I am not a huge fan of partial seams but am getting the hang of them.

Ten of ten would have been completed....but alas, when one runs out of steam, one should simply stop, reflect and be happy for what was accomplished.  Translation:  I misplaced the two blocks - which were discovered after photographing the 8. 

Babysitting either one or two grands tomorrow....so perhaps on Thursday quilt top and backing will find themselves ready for the adventurous quilter after meeting a friend for lunch.

All in all, not a bad day.

21 September 2016

Already September 2015 and while I feel there is not much to show for it (translation: at least 40 quilts done), I am sure there is much to show....

Instead of focusing what's in the past, I intend to do my best to focus on today....and let tomorrow worry about itself.

Mathew 6: 34
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

So no worries....just focus on today.

Have finally decided to focus on goals for the remainder of this year - and on to 2016.   Quilty goals.

One finished quilt a month.  

That's it.  

Seems simple enough.

 Quilt top:

....and quilt backing......

21 September....9 days to go.  

And penalty for not completing?  Absolutely none.
