How many times do you say that? Whether it pertains to one more bite of food, one more cup of coffee, one more lap around the track, one more mile or even it is about one more yard of fabric, one more block or one more border?
Thursday, I was working on my Farm Girl Vintage and I was trying to push to the end of my flying geese border and I was a little anxious and wanted to do something else, so I said one more border and then I would take a break! So I did!
When I’m nearing the end of a project, I like to start thinking of the next project and how I want to play with the colors and what fabrics to use. So after I got 2 of my 4 flying geese borders I decided to play with fabrics for my Sew Kind of Wonderful, Mod Owls pattern.
My Sears Kit house was labeled as a Modern house for her time. Kind of funny, what does “modern” mean!?
As I was thinking about “one more” I really got to thinking of one more hug or one more conversation with a loved one that wasn’t here anymore. With so many people passing away it really makes one stop and think about life and what our choices are, etc. so choose wisely grasshopper!
Thursday I drove over to the retreat house to see or check on progress and see how things are taking shape. We are finally getting to the good part and I can really see how things take shape. Sheetrock was delivered! Wahoo!
About half of the sheetrock was installed on Friday, but not finished yet. I keep telling myself – progress is progress!
During the sit and sew on Friday and Saturday I worked on my Primitive Gatherings, Magic of Christmas finishing and it is coming along. I got all of my sashing done and it is now all pieced together. I am working on the pieced borders.
I left the girls alone while I went to Bonnie’s funeral. The service was very nice and Brandon and Aaron did a great job officiating the funeral. Brok drove down and he even wore his uniform. Please keep the family in your prayers as they learn to live without their wife, mother, sister, daughter in law, and aunt.
We had a great time, I hope you consider joining me for the next two weekends to sit and sew. March 3rd and 4th and also on March 10th and 11th. Let me know if you want to come.
First thing Saturday I decided it was time to put the last border on my Lori Holt, Farm Girl Vintage. It is done and I’m one happy city girl! Ha!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. love and hugs,
