I'm Boring Today

A friend of mine and I used to email each other on a very regular basis. Sometimes we'd start or end the post with "I'm boring today". That would just mean "hello- don't have much to say".....That is how I have felt all week, so have struggled with just what to post about. Fall has hit us full force and I am in my winter mode, hunkering down in the evening with warm clothes. We have had a couple of hard frosts and snow is predicted for tonight. Sigh!!!! I keep falling asleep in front of the TV, so I need to snap out of it!!! Time to take action!!!!
As Tony is gone into northern Alberta all week, and Dana is on evenings at the hospital, I am by myself every evening. That in itself is daunting, so I decided action was called for.  I am taking on one chore every night. Nothing earth shattering but something to give me my second wind, so that I don't feel so tired and can take advantage of my sewing time. So for example I am going to organize the important papers filing cabinet, and take some books to the used book store for credit. I also have a hair cut tomorrow evening and a dentist appointment Thursday after work. The sewing time will come after the chore is done, so that is the motivation.

This was my chore for tonight- label all my fabric containers. These are projects waiting to be cut out....

Tagalong is coming the Wicasset fabric- those reds and blues are great. I am finishing squaring up the blocks tonight.

 Oh, look you can see my reflection! Just noticed that...This is Park Avenue by 3 Sisters and I have started a quilt along from the Fat Quarterly blog using a jelly roll. It is quick and I wanted to do something that would show this beautiful fabric off. There are 80 blocks to sew, so I have been chain piecing like crazy.

This will be my week, in a nutshell. Soon it will be Friday and Tony will be home, and I will feel like I accomplished something this week.  Maybe not so boring after all!!??

We all need that feeling of accomplishment! I think one chore a night is a good way to make steady progress. You don't want to be too tired to sew!
