From Spring Euphoria to Victory!

Spring has sprung with a vengeance around here. The Iris are in full bloom, shortly to be followed by the glads.

My DS sent me a couple of pictures of Spring at the orchard. The pears were in bloom, and by now, I expect that the whole orchard is full of blossoms and bees.


News from the Studio

Last week, I finally finished the quilt top for the Precision Piecing class. So glad to have it done! Now to decide how to quilt it. It seems to want a cross between tradition and modern designs - so if you have a suggestion - please feel free!

And, how cute are these! I found these at the Patchwork Co - a quilt store in Windham, NY which I mentioned last week. She had a whole rafter lined on both sides with these cute wall hangings. I just HAD to get a bunch of them. Whether I ever make them or not, they are fun to look at! They are designed to be the kitty version of veggies - the first one is Le Artichat, and the other is Mushkit.

My Ah-ha! Moment of the Week

My "duh!" moment for the week, came with 2 days of paperwork! OMG, how did I let data entry and account reconciling go for SO Long? If I were to make a mid-year resolution, it would be to stay on top of financial stuff as it happens.

Procrastination has it's repercussions! Things that have been put off and put off generate a sense of being overwhelmed and discouraged. It is paralyzing and a big waste of time. So, if you have been putting off something because it is overwhelming, be encouraged. Just think about the first 2 things that you would have to do in order to move forward - just 2. Then take 1 step toward the first one - spend 15 to 20 minutes at a time. Then start on the 2nd thing. One step at a time. You will be surprised at your progress. You don't have to get it all done at once. You  just have to keep moving.

Now let's get moving and go quilt something!
