Too much stuff
Sorry, I didn't get to the blog yesterday. So much to catch up on at the office, there literally wasn't time to do any extraneous things like writing a blog.
My FitBit buzzed at 10,000 steps sometime right after work - oh yes - when I was on my way to the library. Had to get home, walk the dogs and then load a quilt on the long arm. By the time I went to bed, my legs were aching. Wow - over 16,000 steps in one day. Haven't done that in a long time and after standing for so many days, my legs were going - WHOA! STOP!
I also spent some time tidying up the studio. It was a mess. I'll edit the pictures tonight so you can see exactly what I mean. I needed to get some batting prepped for the quilt I loaded and literally the cutting table and the ironing board were FULL! And so was the floor. It looks much better now, but I know why they say to get rid of stuff. It takes a LOT of time to maintain your stuff and if you have too much or not enough space to store it - it can take over your life.
And then let's not forget about the massive thunderstorm last night with major thunder and lightning. So bad that my girls were up and a bit distraught. So then I was up and once the storm passed, my brain was going a hundred miles a minute and I couldn't get back to sleep.
What does one do when you can't get back to sleep? You get up and work - that's what! I'm working on the Riley Blake (SHHHHHH!!!!) challenge for the Modern Quilt Guild. Yes at 3 AM, I'm slicing and dicing fabric and having a blast. By the way - I'm not a traitor - it's a good thing to work with competitor's fabric. It makes you more knowledgeable. Trust me - I check out the competition all the time.
It was fun to get back to our walks through the forest. Spring is actually on the way despite the temperature. There is GREEN stuff in the forest! And I see buds on the trilliums.
OK - that's it for today. My TO DO list is long and I've got to get started.
Have an awesome day!!!!!
