Yesterday while running errands after work the old mental attitude set in and I felt that I was a rat on a wheel, trying to get things ACCOMPLISHED………… While at the grocery store I noticed someone that had stopped at the Dunkin Donuts counter, purchased a cup of coffee and was leisurely doing her shopping while enjoying her drink.
Today I will do the same. Instead of feeling as though I am a mouse on a wheel. I will be riding a ferris wheel with stops now and then. Moving a bit slower instead of allowing the RUSHED feeling to take hold. I need to stop at the library, two banks, LQS, Curves, butcher shop, thrift shop and grocery store. Dinner will be something I can fix quickly from the frozen food section. Then I will go to bed and snuggle under two quilts while I appliqué until time to turn out the lights.
I am behind already on my Hour a Day quilt. Not concerned at all. I know I will catch up. I will also be rearranging my list of things to do in February to accommodate the Hour a Day quilt. Judy is so good to design these quilts for our enjoyment and her designs are always a pleasure to assemble.
About the quilt from yesterday -- I suppose it just did not look the way I had envisioned it would look. Perhaps when it is quilted it will be more appealing. I am going to attempt to machine quilt this one myself on my Janome. I began the year with the idea of either finishing one quilt or two quilt tops each month. I did finish one quilt this year (picture later) and I have pieced two quilt tops. I have also enjoyed every stitch taken.
