Wow - it is amazing how a small detail can KILL TWO DAYS!!!!! And I can't share that small detail with you yet, but it is an interesting story. And errands - well - errands are a TIME KILLER!!!!! But I did manage to get a lot of stuff done.
So - the closet is still waiting to be finished, the round robin is still waiting to be finished, the quilt on the machine is still waiting - well you get the picture.
I taught the second part of Miranda Bag the other night and here are the results of that class......
|Just needs handles and a flap|
|Just add the handles!!!!|
|Handles on - just needs a flap|
|Handles and flaps needed|
|Add flaps and handles|
|Almost done - just a bit of sewing on those handles!!!!|
The girls all did an amazing job when you consider that they had to quilt the fabric as well!!!!!! The Miranda Bag by Lazy Girl Designs is my all-time FAVOURITE BAG pattern.
One thing that I am trying to do is to keep my e-mail inbox clear. However it is amazing how quickly it can accumulate. I had to open a new folder when I came back from vacation because of the new software. Well - the system did that - not me!!!! And in that short time - there are almost 500 messages sitting there!!!!! I am trying to process them as they come in, but honestly - trying to action them/read them is VERY time consuming!!!!! And if you leave them until later - well later never happens!!!!! What a constant battle.
I am happy to say that I have gotten a pretty good handle on the paper that comes into the house - getting good at processing that right away and keeping it neat and tidy. I suppose I have to learn an entire new set of skills for the electronic stuff. But newsletters from stores, e-magazines, offers from stores, etc - wow - it all adds up. I have cancelled a couple of them, but the rest I am keeping for now and will see how it progresses.
Oh you would have loved to see me yesterday at the gym. Sorry no pictures. I was complaining that I am not getting any cardio with my knees bothering me. So Alwin decided that I need to learn how to BOX. Oh yeah!!!!! I got the big red SMELLY gloves on and I am doing the ONE -TWO jabs and punches. Now you are wondering how this is cardio????? Well - I had to run from one punching bag to another and do the punches besides playing tag with him. Oh yeah - it was a cardio workout to say the least. Actually a pretty good place to get rid of aggression!!!!!! I may have to buy my own gloves!!!!!
I've got a HUGE busy quilting day planned so I had better get started!!!!!! (At last!!!!)
Have a great day!!!!!!
