Buzzing…. just buzzing.

Right now, I am buzzing.
After my post about drifting the other day, I have managed to have a couple of very productive days. But first and foremost,
I FINISHED THE QUILT!!!!

Yes. I did. I felt so fan-blinkin’-tastic about it as well that I immediately took photos and posted them to FB. Since then, I have chatted with a couple of friends and comments have ranged from “Beautiful” to “About bloody time too”. lol
In my defense, it only took 5 months. I could have been a lot longer if I’d wanted.
Truthfully though, I wanted it finished. No matter how many times I threw up my hands, broke needles, broke thread, mis-cut or became frustrated and walked away, I was determined to finish.
On Tuesday afternoon (just after the Tween came in from school), I snipped the last thread of my hand sewing and took it to her room. She wasn’t obviously excited, but then she wouldn’t be. Unless it involves Dance Moms, it takes a bit to get her to become animated. She did seem quietly pleased. She then came right out and askedΒ  if I would use the leftovers to make a matching pillowcase or cushion? πŸ˜€ I told her that I would think about it.

Since achieving the completion of the quilt, I’ve been on a bit of roll. It’s almost as if the quilt was the catalyst.
After I finished, I baked. My family always enjoy when I bake. However the biscuits are gone already so I will have to bake again. πŸ˜‰
Yesterday, the GG and I went out and managed to accomplish the completion of a lot of little chores including renewing my driver’s license. Since I needed to update it, I first went to the hairdresser and tidied up my shaggy dog look before going to have my photo taken to be stuck on a piece of plastic for the next several years. I then went to the local jeweller and redeemed my gift certificate that I have had in my handbag since my birthday last year and got a lovely pair of earrings.
After doing all this, the GG and I came home and sat back to watch our afternoon entertainment (the Fox Classics channel featuring old episodes of The Virginian).
Once that finished, I decided to pull out all my family history stuff.
I have long since lost the program that I was originally using but still had the GEDCOM file backed up (thank goodness). I read aΒ  lot of reviews and comparisons before I decided to purchase Legacy. Once I had downloaded it,Β  I set about fixing up a few things in my family tree – such as adding dates and names and updating the tree with all the information that I have been gathering at odd times over the past couple of years.
It’s got me all excited about researching family history once again.

So that is where I am right now.
I have moved a little from being adrift (although I still am still drifting) to buzzing.
My mind is buzzing with all sorts of things and I am on a little bit of a natural high after completing the quilt and compiling some of the family history stuff that I have had sitting in folders for some time.

Buzzing is good right? It sorts of adds a little outboard motor to the boat I’m drifting in.

  1. FANTASTIC!!! The quilt is so lovely, and your daughter is pleased whether she tells you so or not! I know the feeling about being buzzed about new projects. Completing one is just the start of something else. And so it goes . . .

  3. Congratulations, Suz! The quilt is a masterpiece. I’m in awe! And good for you for staying productive. I set daily goals and that helps me keep from drifting…Then I make sure I take vacations and breaks though because it’s important to have time to drift too.
