First flowers of spring have finally arrived!
I continue to work on my happiness project but this was a week of testing my goals, again. I have found that I was weary of it because, just because. It is hard and every day. And I didn't always suceed in keeping my goals. Just like dieting, exercising, cleaning the house, doing laundry.....the list goes on. You know the things you need to do but don't want to do.
Here are the thing I like to do to balance out life:
I finished piecing my Victory Quilt. I need to add a border. Or two. I love this little quilt. The little 6 inch blocks were hard to do as they are cut and pieced traditionally. I am finding paper piecing to be so much easier. Now what to do? I have to think about what pattern I want to use for the next quilt. I have several precut sets that I have been saving for just the right moment.
I was digging through my stash and gave away several large pieces of fabric that were not quilting fabrics. I found some fabric I bought at a garage sale when a drapery business closed. I think I will sew new curtains to give the house a new look!
Spring cleaning of the gardens happened today and all that fresh air has made me tired. Tomorrow we will plant the cold season veggies. Lets hope for a better growing season this year!
