Head down and concentrate!....

Good morning

Well I have to say MY LIST is longer than ever today. I have so much to do that I am trying to work it out in my brain so that I am not chasing my tail.

I have an hour of housework to do ( yes it must be done, I can not work if I have not sorted that out.   An hour a day keeps on top of it until the weekend)  Then today the little house sampler gets most time.  It's coming along but I do not want to put up a picture until there is quiet a difference.

Then there is a little ribbon making and some work on Christmas stockings.  I like to do a few at a time.  I like to do the design on the front of a few and then sew up three or four at a time, it seems to flow better that way.

I have a letter to write to a old friend and childhood playmate who has hurt herself badly.  She is at home now but in bed. Lots of broken bones including her pelvis, so I thought a catch up in a letter would be nice for her.  Something to start her long day in bed.  This friend is one of the most 'on the go' people I know and a horse woman too, so she must be going stir crazy. She didn't have the accident on a horse either. 

On the list of to do is also more Christmas journal covers.... I have designed and sorted out the fabrics already so that should not be too bad, but all of these things take time and can not be rushed. Hand stitching and sewing take time but its so much better than machine embroidery, I really am not a fan of it.

I am also trying to finish my homework on my first quilt. I am taking lessons with the lovely Suzy of Quilted Happiness.  I have had to cancel so many lessons because I am busy, but will resume in November come what may. I have two lap quilts on the go and would like them finished. I am a quilt addict too you see. I love them and they are on all our beds.  These change with the season.

I will leave you with my quote for today ...........

                                  A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars!

I hope you have a good day, whatever it is you are doing or have to do...............
