I got up early this morning and made my next 2 blocks. The Weather Vane
And a Crow's Foot for my Sampler.
Besides these 2 blocks there was no sewing done today. I did decide on the pattern for my cat fabric I bought yesterday. And played with my siggie blocks a bit. But in the spirit of trying to balance my life more I opted to do household chores instead of sew all afternoon.
I have a bad habit of focusing on one thing to the exclusion of everything else. Mama was the same way. She'd spend HOURS in the sewing room and burned more meals from starting something and then going to sew "just 1 more seam" and would remember only when smoke filled the house. It's a wonder she never burned the house down! She did burn a hole right thru the bottom of my best soup pot once. A thick bottom cast aluminum one. I'm not quite that bad but only because I have a timer and I set it so I won't forget I have something cooking.
I've focused so much on sewing lately the house is a MESS! Not a filthy, disgusting, looks-like-you'd-catch-a-disease-from-it mess. But I've only done surface cleaning for a while so lots of things have gotten overlooked. Like cobwebs in the corners and dust on the ceiling fans. And the science experiments way back in the back of the refrigerator. I even took the curtains down yesterday and washed them! Now to get them hung back up. Today's project was the kitchen table. It tends to get piled high so we have to shove stuff over to eat or I'll eat in my recliner and David at his desk in front of the computer. Yesteday when I was out I bought flowers for the table and told David the table was off limits for laying stuff down. Wonder how long I can keep it this way. I give it MAYBE a week. LOL!
Tomorrows task is the ironing. I HATE to iron - unless it's fabric of course! But if I can get it all caught up and the laundry too then maybe I can make myself deal with each load as it's done and by doing a load every day or 2 I should be able to keep up with it. So early morning will find me making my 2 blocks. Then it's on to the ironing and I'm sure a nice nap tossed in there somewhere. Gotta have those priorities straight after all. :-)
