Well, I made my first oops of the year today. I was supposed to be in a meeting at the Depot at 9:30 a.m. and I forgot all about it. <sigh> I had it written on my calendar and had even pulled some associated material together the other day in preparation. Then I thought of it again last night. But this morning?? Nope, not once did it cross my mind, until it was too late. I had tried to decline the offer of being on the committee, but finally caved. I have to wonder if my reluctance to accept the position was subconsciously the reason I didn’t think about it in time this morning. Not a good feeling. . .

I have been pressing and trimming fabric scraps all morning. It really needs to be done. I’m tired of looking at the mountain of fabric at the end of my table. I also cleared my work table — something that gets done only when I can’t stand it anymore — or when I need to cut a large piece of fabric and can’t lay the fabric out fully because of the clutter surrounding my cutting mat.

I have one more row on my quilt project and then I’ll start putting the borders on it. I had an epiphany the other day and actually visualized what I want to do for a border on the quilt. This is quite an improvement over not knowing if I want to put borders on the quilt. I’m hoping it won’t make the quilt too large for the long-arm quilting machine. We shall see.

It’s overcast and cold out today so I think Robert will be taking the day off. I need to return the book he’s reading to the library, so he plans on reading for most of the day. I have a book that I checked out for me but can’t seem to get into it, so will take it back for sure.

Nothing else of interest to say so I will close this with blessings to all. Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. If the negative news bothers you at any time, just mentally send out positive thoughts to overlay the negative.

About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons, a daughter-in-law, and two grandsons. My hobbies include creating art with fabric (quilting and sewing) and paper (cardmaking), reading, writing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in our G scale garden railroad), travel and volunteering. I owned a secretarial and desktop publishing business years ago and was a professional proofreader. I closed my business in 1999 when my husband retired, but I continue to enjoy proofreading and editing for e-authors. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    Lots of hugs. Try Louise Penny….her mysteries are really good.
    Yes, my table is cleaned off too. I only have to put the four sides on the back and I can get to pinning it all together.
