A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days.
My life was once of routine and schedule, then I started to blog. Well, I can't blame it all on blogging. But, I do know, that blogging has taken a bite out of my quilting time. Once on the computer, it's hard to get off. When working on my own blog and reading all the wonderful blogs out there.....how time flies! I now set the kitchen timer, as a reminder, that it's time to move on to other things. This seems to work. I also picked up a weekly schedule to organize my quilting activities for the week. I did stray a couple of times, during week one, but I think it's going to work out just fine.
The other day I was wandering through Michaels Arts and Craft store and found some pretty wild looking magnified glasses. I think the old eyes are going. I can't see to thread a needle anymore. When I was hand quilting my Dresden quilt the other day, I tested them out. I just left them at the end of my nose and tilted my head up when it was time to thread the needle. What a world of difference.
Started my Baby Ralphie quilt. Just love the fabric. The blades measure 1.5 inches in length and the completed Dresden measures in at 6.5 inches. I was surprised at the finished size. I was expecting much smaller. Don't know why. How small could it be with 20 blades?
Until next week.....happy quilting!
