Let’s see. What am I working on in my life right now?
I am working on maintaining my calm.
I confess that the past couple of days, I have snapped more than necessary and the poor GG has copped my raised voice. In my defense, he wasn’t entirely innocent however I should not have snapped. I don’t usually snap at people but sometimes I do. And I don’t like it.
I am working on getting through the week.
There is nothing worse than knowing that you have four days left to work and a whole bucketload of stuff to be done before your final minutes and not wanting to be there at all.I am working on sorting out some sort of timetable for my coming weeks. I think I will write lists of all the things that need to be done and tick them off as I go. I need to set aside some time each day to study and also time to write.
I am working on simplifying my life. At the end of it all, I may even have a garage sale although the GG has begged me not to sell ‘rubbish’ because he doesn’t want the neighbours picking through it and thinking bad things. 🙂
I am working on getting better with my sewing and thinking about setting up a little on-line store to sell bags or other such things. I am collecting patterns and fabric.
I am working on reading through the pile of books beside my bed (if I could only stop buying more to add to it).
I am working on my blog. According to my stats I have had 24,000 views as of a few minutes ago. I mean how freakin’ awesome is that? I want to spend some time on my blog in the coming weeks and give you what you want. To that end, I may even include a poll at the bottom. 🙂
And on the fun side of things, I am working on the following:
The end is in sight on the Tween’s quilt. I have two more of the tracks to sew down, sew lace over some of the more obvious mistakes and then bind. I’m on the home straight. I put it on her bed the other day to get an idea of how big it is and it touches the floor on all sides. After her quilt is finished I want to start smaller quilts for the grandkids.
I am making place mats. I had hoped to have them all finished by the weekend before last but things don’t always turn out that way. I didn’t touch my sewing machine for nearly 3 weeks. There are other colours as well and there will be one for each of the grandchildren as well.
Although I haven’t done much on this in a few weeks, my hexagon hand sewn quilt is growing in size. The Tween doesn’t like it because it is so random.
I’m also dabbling in a bit of drawing. Not sure what I will do with this picture. I might add a quote to it yet. I’m not 100% happy with the watercolour pencils I am using but it’s all trial and error and I’m no Picasso. lol I have lots of drawing books that I want to read and practice with.
So that is what I am working on.
I’m also thinking of doing some digital designs like my Buddha I shared the other day but not sure whether there would be a market for that.
I’m going to put a little poll in here to ask you some questions about my blog and what you’d like to see more/less of. Please bear in mind that there are going to be times that I use my blog as a place to unburden my soul and share my feelings because after all, it is my blog. 🙂
You can choose as many as you want.
Have a blessed day. 🙂
