Big Sis is a but under the weather today. So lots of cartoons and cuddling, 7up and dry toast. And of course mama waiting on her hand and foot. But best of all today seems to be this.
Priceless puppy therapy.
While everybody is snuggly, comfy and content, I am stealing away to the sewing room throughout the day.
I can't wait to get this quilt top finished. These are the blocks I worked on at the retreat. They are so pretty, and each one seemed to take forever to finish. But I got all nine of them done. Phew.
Ya, I think I'm so cool finishing all of my blocks and then I look at the pattern... lots more to do. Like all of the sashing bits and then the flying geese border!! But won't it be gorgeous hanging on the wall above my couch for the holidays? I am clasping my hands and giggling in anticipation. I know I've jumped ahead, as I tend to do lately. I have plenty of quilts ready and waiting to be quilted. And then there's the vintage sheet quilt ready for binding.... still. But nope, I won't think of that large to-do pile. I will work on whatever the heck I feel like working on, so there. Really it's the creative process that's important isn't it? Not what gets finished in what order. So you can just hush up closet full of quilt tops, and wait your turn. And that goes for you too dishes, I'll wash you sorry suckers when I'm good and ready! And if I hear one more peep out of you laundry pile, you're gonna wish you were never born. Ooooh I'm so mean. hehe
Ok, the sashing is calling to me. I hope you get to work on whatever makes you happy today, and feel free to shake a fist at your house chores, and then call them a bad name. You know you want to. :)
x's and o's
p.s. Big Sis is feeling much better.
