The temperatures have continued to dip as we slosh around in the remnants of the last snowstorm. O Wise One and Baby O are in our state capitol where Baby O is competing in the Voice Of Democracy essay contest. First prize is a $3,000 scholarship. She has already won the county and district competitions. With the flu running rampant in our area I decided that I would stay home and take care of the animals while they go. O Wise One being ex military enjoys visiting with all the soldiers and I felt he would enjoy that more so than I. So I packed them up in their finest and sent them off to the city.
As for me between doing all the animal care alone and the projects that I have going that I have plenty to keep me busy. I hope to do lots of quilting : ) I find that when I have a quilt on the frame the way for me to get it done quickly and not linger is to set goals of how much I hope to quilt a day. Just small goals that are easy to fulfill daily.
For this quilt I have set a goal of a block a day.
That is about 45 minutes to an hour each day to complete 1 block.
That will complete a row of 6 squares in a week. If I can stick to that it will be completed in 48 days and ready to bind.
I like having a set amount of time set aside everyday to do something that I enjoy doing. I enjoy putting on soothing gospel music or I have a bible audio and that is my time of worship and solitude as well. A time of quiet reflection and thought.
