Today I had the house to myself for a couple of hours and decided it was time that I get to sew! I haven't sewn anything in several weeks. Everything has been sitting there on my sewing table, just staring at me. It always seems like something else had to get done first. You know what? The dirty house isn't going anywhere - it can wait a while.
I was able to get this top pieced. It is going to be a lap quilt. The colors aren't exactly accurate in the picture but they are close. I am going to piece a few more flying geese for the border and then put them in a wide black border. I am going to quilt it with some varigated thread.
Monday night I am teaching a ladies' bible class. Usually our preacher's wife teaches but she has been asking for volunteers to help her out every once in a while. We are using a book about trying to manage our chaotic lives. The next chapter is called "Is your life a crazy quilt?" The point of the chapter is do you have a plan for your life (a pattern) or do you just take whatever is thrown at you (a crazy quilt). In general the author is saying we need to have goals! Anyway...how could I resist teaching a class that mentions quilts!
