I had such good intentions to be caught up on my blocks by today so I could show AMAZING progress. The beauty of this being MY Blog - is I can have good intentions again! I'm posting BEFORE I start working on Block 2 tonight. So I'm that much more FABULOUS next week.
I'm continuing to work on my hand applique blocks - I love the way they are turning out. I thought I was going to hate this, but by the end of the first block, I'm glad I started it.
I've also made alot of progress on "Operation Downsize"! I've been bonding with my fabric again, listing stuff I'll never touch on Ebay and unloading lots of goodies on my poor unsuspecting Sister-in-law who home-schools my two fabulous nieces and my nephew! You can read about their fabulous adventures here - Starts At Eight Last week she happily hauled away 4 totes and a garbage bag full of construction paper, ribbons, craft foam, pom-poms, pipe-cleaners, knitting needles and all kinds of stuff. From the looks of her recent blog post - it forced her to do some downsizing as well! It felt really good knowing that they will use EVERYTHING they took away. I sure wasn't. WHY on earth was I still storing it all? I am convinced it was sheer laziness. Check out some of my progress!
I'm getting there. And while I'm not accomplishing World Peace - or ending hunger....I am finding small bits of satisfaction that I will conquer this mess and make it a peaceful place again. Now if my Orthopaedic doctor would just let me have Cortizone shots more often, I'd be a REALLY happy girl.
