In case you think I'm working too hard, you can think again! Yes -- I have a couple of deadlines, and YES - I'm a wee bit behind, but I'm not stressing over it. I'm still walking a couple of hours a day for me, I play with the girls (OK -- mostly with Murphy, Lexi is too much of a princess to play!), and I'm reading. And to top it off, today, I'm off on an adventure. Technically, I shouldn't be, but I am.
That all started because I had two places where I wanted to meet people or pick up something. Both of those have gone bust, but we're already made plans, and well - what the heck. If it means I need to stay up a bit later, then I'll do so.
I'm happy to report that on the class prep, I'm making great progress. The work for two of the three classes is complete - the pictures are taken and just need to be organized into a presentation. Then I have one more class to prep. After those classes tomorrow, I'll be madly working to catch up on everything that is a wee bit behind. Just a couple of quilts and some writing.
Don't forget that it's the Virtual REtreat on Saturday and Sunday, and I'll be trimming quilts and catching up on some of the ongoing classes. Busy, busy, busy!!!

Can you tell me why Murphy thinks it's more fun to bark at the rabbits in the middle of the night rather than in the daytime? And why is she up in the middle of the night anyway? If she had a little bark, it might not be so bad, but she has a deep, resonating bark, and you can't miss it!! Oh, Murphy!

Hmmm --- I guess with this variety, I don't really need to buy more. But I might stop by that store just to check it out. And I might be remaking a block or two that are way too crazy. I don't have a lot of background fabric left, so I'll see how that goes.
I need to get all the blocks that have been assigned DONE and get them on the wall and see if anything needs to be redone. I've made one of each, but there were five or six of some of the blocks. I haven't got all those finished.
So guess what I'll be working on at the Virtual Retreat? Yep -- I WANT ALL of these ongoing projects up-to-date. They need to be up-to-date! I'm so close, and I think I can make good progress this weekend.
OH -- and in the midst of sewing, I had to wind more bobbins and clean the machine and supposedly change the needle. This morning when I started working, I could hear that needle. It desperately needed to be changed. For whatever reason, I did the cleaning and winding, but not the changing! So LISTEN to your needle or your machine, whether that's the embroidery machine, the long arm, or the sewing machine - you WILL hear when something is going wrong! That's how I realized the long arm had an issue with those loose threads that I missed - I heard it and ran!
I guess that's it for me this morning. I was going to go to the gym but thought I'd better get some sewing done. Then I'm NOT going to let this craziness happen again. I know - I say that every time, but this is a bit too close for comfort. But not too close, or I wouldn't be goofing off today.
Have a super day!!!
