As I consider what I said I would do last week on Tuesday To-Do compared to what I actually did, I didn't get everything checked off the list. BUT, there was so much more that was done than what I listed... Does that count for anything??? ('cuz I really think it should!)
❧Pattern writing for the Pieces From The Past Sew Along - Goal of 5 more patterns I have four patterns written and ready for testing... almost there!
❧Begin the king-sized commissioned quilt - 11 log cabins & two silhouette blocks Done!
❧Order photos from 2018 so I can continue catching up with our photo albums As I sit here writing this, I sheepishly confess... I did not even start to gather/collect the digital photos for this project.
I have a good reason for it though! A girlfriend came for an overnight visit and we had plenty of good fun. She did my nails (a very rare occasion for me) as we sipped some wine...
And we made some mini barn quilts and we chatted and laughed the entire time. I stayed up past my bedtime and she was up much earlier than her usual routine to make the most out of our time together.
You may recognize this pattern... it is the Lost Goslin' block (#2 in the Pieces sew along).
Funny story about the purple... Julie LOVES purple. My paint selections were somewhat limited to whatever colors we had left over from other house projects and I did not have any purple... but I had pink and I had blue. So I mixed my own purple paint. And when it wasn't purple-y enough I decided to add red food coloring! Haha! I figured, "what do I have to lose?" It worked and Julie finally approved the lavender color.
So as I look forward and the plans and goals for the week...
❧ Finalize the post for the next block and letter release of the Pieces From The Past Sew Along. Have you missed the first six blocks? You can still join the fun. Just follow the link above and you will find a schedule of the sew along and links for all of the blocks that have been released.
❧ Piece three Sunflower star blocks for the commissioned quilt, along with four of the southwest style 6-1/2" blocks and two 12"x24" tree blocks
Sometimes we just have to be realistic, right?
What do you do to motivate yourself to take on a job or task that you thought was a good idea, but lost the drive to complete it?
Leave a comment... I'd love to hear from you!
