I had a lovely Sunday afternoon that I could completely devote to piecing the mystery quilt, On Ringo Lake. This made it easier to complete the project into a flimsy in stolen bits of time throughout the rest of the month. I am happy with that!
February’s OMG completed. And now this impulsive project, that was almost a nuclear explosion in my sewing room, will be relegated to a hangar in the closet until such time as I can bring myself to look at it again. Ha, ha!
A little tangent…
Why are Sundays so important for me? On average, there are four Sundays in a month. That means that I have four days off per month. That’s right. Four days per month to accomplish my goals (and that is fitting the goals in between the must do’s and want-to-do’s…like shopping, laundry, and visiting kinfolk). In other words, I work six days a week, so, yeah, I am slow to reach goals. Any goals. I may have to carry it over month to month, but little by little…in small increments, and the goal gets done.
I am sure there are others out there, who for one reason or another, are slow to accomplish their goals. Don’t give up! You can reach your goals. It is going to take you longer, but the important thing is to get to the finish line at your pace!
(I may be a tiny bit influenced by the Olympics this month!)
My second goal for February was to print and cut out the pattern pieces to make a Laundry Day Tee tunic.
The next picture is boring, but it shows that I completed that small goal and have a tunic ready to sew. I used freezer paper to trace my pattern onto. You are looking at the shiny side in the photo…not the side where I drew my grainlines and other markings.
The knit fabric is notoriously slinky! It is a challenge for me!
After baking bread today, I intend to spend some time working on this project.
