I added my list to the sidebar so I can easily see it. I also printed it and stuck it on my bulletin board. If you look at the list on the sidebar, the first four bullets are the items I REALLY want to get done and the last four are items I hope to get done.
We’re well on our way to finishing up the first full week of the month. I am hoping to have at least one of my items done each week but in reality, it probably won’t work that way. It will take me longer to quilt, bind and mail Margie’s quilt than it will take me to make Block 1 of the Comfort & Joy Quilt.
I’m hoping to get lots of sewing done tomorrow and Monday. Yesterday I was sick. Today we were gone half the day but that’s kinda how life goes . . pretty unpredictable. Ever think how much you would get done if you spent all day every day sewing? I don’t think I would get tired of it but I think Vince would get real tired of it and if Vince isn’t happy . . it’s real hard for me to be happy!
Speaking of sewing time . . Speck must’ve caught what I had yesterday, if that’s possible, because he was sick today. We got home from Home Depot about 3 and Speck would not come out of the crate. We begged, we offered snacks, we took turns sitting on the floor pleading with him. I put a sheet in the dryer and got it real warm and let him feel how warm it was, hoping he’d come out of the crate to snuggle under the warm sheet. If you’re familiar with the average dachshund, you know why we didn’t reach in and grab him. We both value having two hands.
He just sat in the crate and shivered. We gave him a baby aspirin and finally, I said . . he’s a dog. I’ve done what I can do. I’m going to sew.
Just as I was finishing up, I got this email from Vince.
That was an abrupt end to my sewing tonight! I hope that I get Margie’s top quilted tomorrow and at least half the blocks made for the 2nd QOV.
I hope you’re all making good progress on your list!
