Not quite enough

I love quilting on City Green, it is all geometric so it is easy to know what to do first.  I have stitched in the ditch horizontally for all the rows I can do before I roll the fabric. I will stitch in the ditch for all the vertical rows as well.  When I do that all over the quilt, the green squares should POP a bit.  Then I have to decide if I want to stitch in green inside each green square or do an interconnecting geometric design.  I filled two bobbins in brown and to do that, I had to empty a bobbin.  I need to buy more spare bobbins so I can keep some filled in different basic colors.  This is one of the great things about quilting, you never have to worry about what you are going to spend your money on, you just know!  I think that's a good thing, not having too much extra money.  If I had too much I would probably just get into mischief.

Apparently, it is also good to not have enough time either.  I know, I am retired but I do teach a class. 
Twice a week. 
For two hours each time. Gosh!
(If you read this to yourself using a Napoleon Dynamite tone and speaking pattern you will amuse yourself as I am at this moment!)
I did not get the aprons finished.  I did get them cut out and made the straps but I have to stitch them up.  Hey, I do know that the deal is 4 hours a day but the prep work counts!  And I knit every night.

Never too much money nor time, this is a good thing, yes?  This way I get to yearn a bit and look forward to the new projects I can work on the next day.  I am going back to Aqua Exercise tomorrow, I didn't go last week as I was being Nurse Kathy.  Lots of fun things tomorrow, swimming, a massage, a pedicure with a friend and what else?  I am just teasing, I know, I will also fit in sewing and knitting plus some reading.

Not quite enough time or money, I love it!


  1. Even though you do not have enough time to do all of the things you want, I love the fact that you have time for me.
