Hard At Work


I've been stitching away on the nine patch quilt
my plan was to stop 
when all the pieced and alternating blocks were together
a nice size lap quilt it would have been

but someone always has other plans for me
so now we're adding a sawtooth border
only three inch triangles
so certainly there will be more to come
until we reach the size for a twin bed

catching up:

that saving thing I started
a quarter the first day, two the second and so on...
total physical failure...I rarely have cash

so I've been adding the money to an online account
that lasts twelve months
so far so good

:::::

the Lent challenge
to find one thing per day to donate is going well
I have found more than one item each day
but make sure I am mindful and do it daily

my favorite cupboards to purge so far
have been in the kitchen
between Mom and I there are so many baking pans
we often made mini breads and bundt cakes
someone is going to hit the motherload
at the church rummage sale

:::::

I'm really itching to dye some wool...
hoping to squeeze in one batch this weekend
feels really good
wanting to do this!
been a long time coming...
getting back to "me"

Good for you! Doing for "you" for a chance.

Sounds like you are getting a lot done, it is a nice feeling to accomplish things, even the small ones.
I try to do one thing each day, that I don't like but needs doing, that way the house gets clean and I feel good that I did that one thing, one small step at a time.

Oh, I love the look of a sawtooth border! Not that I've ever done one, but they're pretty! LOL

I never have cash, it would have been difficult for me, too. As for cleaning, I'm so far behind...I'd have to start now for next year's Lent. LOL

Have a great day!

So plans were changed and influenced by someone. Whoever gets final say, it will be another great piece with a little side story. Geez. I forgot all about the daily donate.
