I thought I would come on here and say 'hi' - not my idea, but one I read when I was blog hopping the afternoon!! And found this!!- well, she is doing a challenge to blog everyday........ hmmmmm. So this is why I am here!!
And while I am here, show you what I have done, well, a couple pics anyway.... got my camera back (stole it back!! just for this!!!) and memory is full after 3 pics!! So, here they are:
This brown basket quilt (and I am not a basket fan but LOVE THIS!!!!) was a mystery I did over the summer, just to get me back sewing.... which I tend to not do - bad habit #1.
I am still doing my 20 minutes of sewing a day - totally caught up till hubby came home... guilt I guess. I don't know. He LIKES seeing me in there, so I do not know why, when he's home, I change....... Bad habit #2....
I do have border ideas for this little guy, and after I read this I know I have to get a few things done around here!!! The link takes you to Bonnie Hunters new MYSTERY!!! She is calling it Orca Bay, and I am going to have to do some shopping for it!! I have the blues, and some background, but I do not have many reds or blacks so..... what's a girl to do???
(Besides clean up my room I mean!!!!)
And here is another Mystery I am working on - it's all finished now, it was a one-day fun time, but I am only on Step 4 - and so is my friend who did it with me!! Does not make me feel better though!! She's been busy, I have not!!!!
These are the main blks - well, the backgrounds have been cut out of the pic - but this is the main component. Even though I have printed off the last steps - I did not peek!! So, I still don't know what I am doing after I finish this step:
This is the future border of this project.... I think it has to much yellow in it, but if winter ever does come (and it's okay if it doesn't!!!) I might like how happy it looks with all the yellows!!!
So, my main reason for blogging today is - what bad habits do you have that you would like to change??
Me, I have already told you two - and I have more.... and one is not blogging... I love to read, but feel I don't have much to share/show or talk about so, I stay quiet......... This month, I will work on changing that. Plus, - well, another reason I don't come on here is it takes me FOREVER to write this!!! I loose my pics, I keep working at getting them to go where I want and.... It's all a learning curve, I am ready to drive!!!
And my worse habit? Dare I admit it??? It's not like you can't tell, but I hate housework!!!!
So, that is another habit that I will change this month. Well, I probably will still not like it, but the habit I am talking about is - pretending I don't see it!! This month, I will see it and I will do something about it!!!!
And then, when I am working on my new mystery (along with my other projects - they will be done as leader and enders!!!) I might enjoy my tidy, organized sewing area even more!!!! (habit #5?? are we there yet, or passed it???? Well, it's not cleaning up after myself in my room - I just push it aside and move on......)
I have a friend who is going through some tough times and I tell her it's all in the habits we keep. And when I hear myself tell her that, I know that I am also speaking to myself. So, it's a new year coming up, and now is a good as time as any to work on making real changes in my life. If not not now - when??? So, how 'bout now? My plans are to get myself organized and pick up what I see needs it. Get things done, not just think about it. I CAN do it, so I will.
I love to see what people are working on and I should let others see what I do too!!
On a little different note: here is a piece of Trivia. I just heard this on the radio yesterday. I live in Alberta, near Edmonton, and I guess this area has not had a snow free October since 1963.
So, now it's October 2011 - that was a 48 year record that just got broken. hmmmmmm - has this area ever had a snow free November?????
ifwhen I stick to my 'new' plan - I'll talk to you tomorrow!!!
