In case you're wondering, I did NOT get my project done for today. Not even close. I've made this before and I had forgotten how fiddly the last part is and I wasn't in the mood last night to fiddle for hours. No big deal, the deadline was my own. I will work on the project over the next week and get it done - little by little!
However, this has been a BIG learning tip for The Task Master. In my book, I wrote - "finish project X". That was it!!! Grossly underestimating the number of steps and how long it was going to take. I set myself up for a major fail on this one!!!! I needed to break it down into steps and then I could check them off and make me feel better about it rather than missing a potential deadline.
Big lesson learned!!!!! So I'm behind, but that's OK - I have FOUR consecutive days (yep - even Christmas day) where I can sew to my heart's content and I hope to make The Task Master happy.
I must make myself a HUGE HUGE sign about Delusional Doability and POST it in The Task Master. I'm my own worst enemy!!! And not to worry - I'm not beating myself up - just learned a lesson. Time to move on!
The good news was that I was able to finish my book last night! Yep - the good guys prevailed, the bad guys all got thrown out of the helicopter!
Here is another area that needs a bit of tidying! That would be my purse! I didn't carry a purse for years. Then I splurged and bought this beautiful orange purse! Yeah! However, it has become a dumping ground and there are ALL kinds of stuff in it. I don't have time to unpack the purse today. That will happen tomorrow.

|That says 2.575 Ks|
That's a lot of crap!!!!! I will remove everything that shouldn't be there. Don't worry - I'll take a picture for you. And I'll reweigh the purse. I bet it will be shocking what's in there!!!!
Now here's another question for you - about quilt labels. Last night, I was asked if I had a baby quilt that DH could give to a work colleague who had had a baby. As a matter of fact, I do have one. The baby is a boy - the quilt is blue and yellow - perfect! Now - how to label said quilt??? What do you do on a quilt like this???? There is zero personal connection and there is NO pattern. I know exactly what I want to do - no time for it, but I'm ordering something for future quilts.
I'll reveal all that tomorrow.
Have a super, super day and don't forget - tell me what's in your purse?????
My purse is very small. I carry only ID, credit and other cards plus some cash and a spare car key. I just went and looked and I also have a pen but no paper. that's it. Last winter I carried a cell phone in a small pouch with my ID and credit cards - not even any cash.ReplyDelete
