I was laterally productive this weekend which means I was busy all the time, doing lots of things, but not really concentrating on what needed to be done first.
I managed to get all of the corner triangles sewn on to my Heartfire blocks.
I need to make thirteen more blocks before I can start sewing this one together. I decided on my border fabrics which is the same fabric that I'm using in the center of this square. If I cut the border fabric correctly, I will have nice crosshatching lines to follow in my border when I'm machine quilting.
During THREE football games yesterday, I made grapes, grapes and more grapes. I don't sit in front of the TV all day long. I'm up and about, cooking, straightening the house, printing and stuffing patterns, and grape stomping. I can't just sit and watch TV without doing something productive. If I just sit, there's also the hazard that I will doze off, (I don't want to drool on my grapes) so I keep myself occupied when the tube is on.
I also made a couple more baskets for Once Upon a Vine.
I'll start out this week with my to-do list handy and work my way through it. The problem is I keep adding to it throughout the day. Sometimes I will write something on my list that I've already completed, just to have the satisfaction of checking something off.
I'm headed to the shop this morning for work. I always look forward to seeing the new fabrics that arrived over the past week. In Between Stitches is just full of quilty goodness. Tomorrow I'll be teaching part two of Patchwork Math. I'm anxious to see what the girls have been working on since our last meeting.
So get out those lists, check them twice, and let's all enjoy our day and be creative.
