The importance of learning a very basic word seems to have alluded me! Here it is Friday again and I still haven't finished quilting the String Stars. Seems there are many who just need a few moments of my time and how can I say "No" ! You would think I may have learned this at a much earlier age, but that lesson simply never took! Maybe that is why I am not great at Time Management, ya think????
I thought I had only until today to complete this baby, but I have been provided with a very nice reprieve hopefully I will manage to get the binding sewn down Saturday evening - hey, that is tomorrow!! The event for this presentation will not take place until Sunday, so I have a grace period for certain.
I am care giving this evening, I have messages to get done this afternoon (you know, groceries, bank, post office, etc.) and even with me living so close to these amenities, I never seem to make the time to get there as often as I really should, why? Because other things just happen and I haven't learned to say NO! LOL
Once the quilting on this baby is finished I still want to throw it into the washer and get the grubbies off it, so that its scent is fresh and it looks nicely crumpled as a quilt of this type should look, imo..
My best friends daughter is doing well after that last operation, and if all goes according to Hoyle, she will be going home tomorrow or Sunday. Rather Saturday than Sunday, progress is being made and already she has been up and about on her crutches. Thank you all who said a special little healing prayer for her, it is so very much appreciated.
I shall need a good long rest when this summer is over with I have a to do list that is far too long. Once the String Stars has been dealt with there is the other quilt to be made ready, I hope to collect all of the signature blocks this week and begin assembling that top. It isn't the quilting or the piecing that gets me because these are such pleasurable tasks, it is that time never stands still long enough for me to catch up.
