Probably not, but I’m at sixes & sevens about many things right now. One of those things being my stitching life….
I’ve recently felt the need to pack up my sewing room, that is to put away all the projects I have waiting for me to get motivated to finish. Instead I found myself beginning new projects and having yet another work in progress to clutter up my mind.
Like many other crafty women out there, I have more supplies and projects to work on than I can humanly expect to complete in several life times, let alone the years I may have left in me. It’s about time I put some time management strategies into play. After all I am a CF (control freak) and the total lack of control in life is beginning to expose it’s ugly head to me!!!
There are so many more things I’d like to achieve in my life and unless I begin to take back control of the wasted hours I may not get to experience the joy of seeing those dreams come to fruition.
It is probably also necessary to point out that tonight I have enjoyed two glasses of Southern Comfort and Coke and that is probably a little responsible for my ruminating thoughts, right now!! So take my ramblings with a grain of salt.
Here is my (almost) finished Granny Squares quilt top. Almost, because when I took it to find a border fabric, I decided to simply add a 2 1/2” border of the cream, machine quilt, and then bind with the chocolate brown.
These little pouches are a Pinterest find…..and this time I’ve actually acted on the find and made a couple of the little suckers! Noodle Head is where you can find the tutorial.
Here is Brooklynn enjoying her first Babycinno!
Our garden is blooming with all it’s spring glory and these three Crucifix Orchards are looking fabulous!
The King Orchid is blooming.
The Lavender beds are stunning at this time of the year.
Father’s Day last weekend and as usual the box was as important as the gift it contained, well for Brooklynn at least!!
Not to be outdone, Jordan became “Box Man”
We took a drive to Rathdowney and stopped at the pub for lunch. The park was our final stop for Brooklyn to ‘ride’ the horse.
So, while I may have had a change of priorities, I’m never idle…..Right now I’m machine quilting a baby quilt for a friend’s daughter, and I have three hand projects, one applique and two stitcheries in various stages of ‘doneness’. My plan for the remainder of 2012 is to work on the quilt tops I have been accumulating and the hand projects I have already on the go.
Let’s see how this works for me shall we?
