I have attempted to give in to winter “break” by not requiring myself to do lots of machine sewing this week. I knew it just wouldn’t happen. It is powerful hard because the “shoulds” and “want tos” are sitting idle. But, I am trying to maintain some productivity. I find it helps to keep my brain from leaking out my ear.
So, we have continuing fun stuff going on with Greenbrier:
We have a block of the month:
And the mail carrier was kind enough to pull up and carefully deliver a Stitchette quilting bee:
There are weeks in which I have good intentions of getting lots of things done and then I DON’T get as much done as I planned. That is always a bummer. For some reason, however, it is harder not to have high expectations from the get-go of the week. Just can’t let it go. Yes, it’s nearly the end of break week and I am just now trying to let it go and just go with the flow. The flow included lots of quiet, focused time during which Herself worked on a school project–wait for it–WITHOUT COMPLAINT. I should take a lesson: there was no stressing out about the project, there was just the doing of the project, successful completion and then some Sponge Bob to celebrate! I should try that next week.
