I have decided, after picking up the mountain of quilts that need to be bound, I need to start sewing the bindings down. I have some binding already attached and need hand stitching. Sewing in the evening with the TV on is what I am going to do. Really. I am. I have to get these things done!! I need to shrink Big Fat Binding Mountain by November's craft show.
I have been thinking about funny little things that I noticed have changed with the onset of the internet. TV programming. It really stinks now. Everything is going to DVR recordings and on demand. Not always bad but I need to change how I watch TV. The family doesn't usually sit together and watch a show.
Reading. I haven't read a book in a year or more. I spend all day reading the computer screen and my eyes are tired. In fact, I am tired.
There was a time when crafts were my only form of entertainment as a kid. We didn't have TV or the internet. The library was a place that was safe to ride our bikes to and check out the books. Summer reading programs had prizes for reaching goals. Do they still do that? We would hang out and actually read. And cool off because it was air conditioned. I actually went to the library this week and checked out Jinny Beyer's new quilt encyclopedia. Very nice.
Yep, I think I will try to read something interesting. Like my library book.
