Come Back

As I have told you before, I have a to-do list that has been piling up, and I finally am getting a chance to whittle it down.  I've been getting reminder notices about my failure to meet my deadlines.  This is not normal for me.  I like to get things done early, not just on time, or way past the deadline.

The problem is, everything I do is taking twice as long as I thought it would.  The plumber doesn't have a part and has to come back the next day, the dentist says I have a cavity so I need to come back, the pharmacy needs to consult with the doctor, so I need to come back.  Again and again, everything on the list has to be done at least twice.

But it is okay, the list is getting smaller, and eventually it is getting to be at a manageable level.  And on my to-do list is quilting. The Quilts for Kids are back out again, and I get to finish them.  I don't have to save quilting for after the list is done.  The picture is of the quilt I finished a while ago.  Just have to add to the pile and ship off.

I HATE having to do things twice - all that running around and your list doesn't shrink! Lovely quilt hon. The dalmations are so cute!

I detest doing things twice too. That's the good thing about a quilt, when it's done it's done. Take a deep breath and don't worry about the list... it will all get done, in due time.

Hi! I'm a new follower. I'm currently in the process of sewing my first quilt (by myself...first one ever was with my grandma when I was 12 years old!)

I hope you follow me back, I would LOVE some feedback on my progress!

My husband just got done telling me that his whole life these days was one big follow up. I guess we are all in the same boat:)
