Quilting or lack thereof
You know how some people have a hard time quilting or doing anything fun until they have their house clean and everything in order? I'm not generally one of them. Or at least I didn't think so. But with the dog, there is more dog hair and dirt tracked into the house. And I'd like to clean it before I do fun things. I feel guilty for doing the fun things when the cleaning is undone, so basically I sit around and watch tv and ignore the whole situation!
The other guilt thing is work. I am working from home, and even though I know I should just stick to a schedule, and let my free time be my free time, I am having a hard time with that. Especially with interruptions from the dog. "You want to go outside in the nice weather?" I guess I could stop for that. And then I lose track of how much time I have spent working and how much I need to make up. Even on the weekend, seeing the pile of work that needs to be done, which really looks bigger than the actual amount of work, just makes it hard to motivate myself to do any quilting.
All right, I guess I will work or clean or something so I can get to quilting. I am thinking of making another small quilt - before going to another UFO. I had a lot of fun making the quilt for the swap, and I think another one of those would help satisfy my craving to do something new, as well as give me something else to put on the wall.
