The funny thing about the Holiday Season is I always get so messed up in my days!! I worked during the Holidays and yet I still get so confused. My family thinks I am so funny. I guess I am a routine person. I need to work 5 days a week not two and a half lol.
Anywho! I didn't accomplished much ... uhh, let me say that again. I didn't accomplished as much as I would have liked to (yes, that's closer to the truth!!) Every time I have days off, out come the list of things to do. Why can I not just sit and relax? I know, I know I am ADHHHHHD. :-D
I did a lot of cooking, baking, some sewing, some reading, baking, cooking, a lot of bird watching and feeding, (like this...
that's me by the way. I've been " training" them since the summer. Today, we're having a snow/ice storm/shower (?). Anywho, it looks like this. )
and had a lot of playing time with the boys, the computer and worked with sand paper ... again! What I wanted to do most during the holidays was to stain the wood works in the kitchen. So I did. And it doesn't look good. So I stopped. I am now facing plan B which is more time consuming and demanding of a plan. Darn!! Why things don't go as planned? It looked so nice in my head! Oh well, no time for that, just go to the next step. Out came the sand papers and I now have to repaint the entire kitchen cabinets. Ugh! but not today.
Today is sewing time again!! I will be working on Take 21. That's another project that didn't get as far along as I was hoping it would but still, block 4 of row 6 is done.
Yesterday, my friend came over with her daughter and we had a lovely time together. We played with fabric!! She's making her very first quilt on her own. Long ago, she used to "help" her mother make quilts. When she was only 23 years old, her mother passed away. Now, my friend is rediscovering this art and wants to re-learn. So, she brought her fabric over and we played with the layouts. She also brought me a bag of scraps. !!! Oh! my sweet friend! the goodies! Look at the trail it left on my floor.
This picture was taken after only two bags were open. I still have 5 more to enjoy!!
In the biggest bag was plaids! The strips on the right are sewn together already as are the four patches on the left of the picture. There's 12 blocks of four patch and a lot of alternate blocks cut. There's two more bags of the plaids to be open. Maybe I have enough for a small lap quilt? You will definitively see more of these plaids in 2015. More scraps ...
Even some Halloween fabric!! My first!
I have a turkey in the oven to make some more chicken pot pies, (again) okay turkey pot pies lol. We still have one more party to attend next Saturday and we are bringing ... yes, pot pies for 60 people!
But today, I will "train" myself to sit and relax, and dream of scrappy quilts while slow stitching block 5. What about you? What's in your plan!
I am linking with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching!
Until next time ... ;^)
