Fair amount of cutting and sewing this year, but no finishes. I guess it has been a funny year for me. I turned 60 years old in Feb. but I thought I was handling it well and I guess life has gotten in the way.
I see so many piles of scraps and fabric pieces laying everywhere and my mind is on overload. I think about cutting into it and making more usable pieces and then I get scared with the notion I will never get anything done.
I really want to get this one done and yet I sit and look at it. Not really depressed just stagnant in my efforts. I have until May of 2013 to get this one done. Shouldn't look at it that way. I should jump on the band wagon and do it Right!!!!!!
This has been the latest passion to work on these blocks, but this week I just quit. I have not even sewn a stitch for about 10 days now. Being sick so long has made me out of the mood.
I love the look of this one and only have 7 more blocks to applique. I cut out some more of the applique shapes from freezer paper last night and that is as far as I got.Thanksgiving is coming on my heels real fast. I am having between 12 and 15 people. I need to get some cleaning done. Carpets need doing and yet I just keep putting it off. Today I got my Christmas Cards all addressed and stamped ready to put in the mail. So I can put. all of the address book and writing supplies away. Not a big list, but it needed doing.
I plan on cleaning off the kitchen table and get ready to shampoo the area rug out there. Things get track up so fast and I guess I don't spend enough time picking up after us and keeping the dust bunnies at bay.
I hope you all are ready for this busy time of year and your efforts are appreciated. I go through the motions and yet I don't really appreciate the commercial feeling the holidays are anymore. Take time for yourself and sit back and enjoy the season. Chris
