So much thought has been going on

I have just been overwhelmed by the health crisis and recovery and I still am not really 100%. I am eating normal again and able to do a few things, but I am so wore out after I get done.

As I said before I let myself go and it is going to take a long time to recover, but I am determined to get better. Each day I push harder.

Thanksgiving is going to be here, but my son and wife are going to do the cooking. Which will be a treat for me because I have always done for ever one else.  I am sure it will be emotional day for me giving up the apron.

I have been wanting to get into the sewing room and even move things around, but I haven't forced myself as of yet. I do have to go in there tomorrow and move a Christmas gift that is visible. The kid always looks for his gifts so I have to make sure it is hidden.

So here is a list I have thought about of late and I wrote it down in the middle of the night when I was awake and in pain.

My 12 step list.

1. Admit you are a quilter who has a problem.

2. If you have more than one quilting problem Start over. Admit it all.

3. Use what you have on hand.

4. If you are a starter and not a finisher. Admit it.

5. Make a list and finish it.

6. Make a goal to complete a WIP soon.

7. Pet your stash and straighten it.

8. Pull fabric for your first quilt after the first of the year.

9. Organize all quilting tools, rulers, machine feet, and have them all in one place so you can find them easily.

10. Dust as you go. Empty waste baskets and pitch small scraps.

11. Have a leader and ender project ready to work on.

12. Have kits made up with EPP and applique. Needles, thread, pins, patterns and templates, scissors and a thimble.

Go Forth and quilt.

I will have to push myself to stay with this list. Hopefully I can make some goals happen.
I think I have to push through mind over matter and get myself going to get back in the swing of things.

Hopefully you all are getting ready for your Thanksgiving  Day. Some will sew some will cook and others will travel. Be safe. Chris
