Today has been a good day. But you know what I constantly realize about myself? I am really good at making busy days for myself! I always have these self appointed projects that I feel pressured to finish in a certain time period. I am not sure why I am so driven in this way; it kind of defeats the purpose of being a stay at home wife and mom! Perhaps someday I will conquer this.
Of course we must do our homeschool work and I am quite glad to feel some sort of pressure concerning that. I want my children to gain the best education I can offer. But today I had it in my mind that I just HAD to finish another square and that I just HAD to finish a cloth I am knitting. WHY? I don't know!! There is no craft police that I know of to catch me half done!! LOL!!
Anyway, the above quilt block is Block #2 from Crazy Mom Quilts. I enjoyed making it very much. I did have to tear out one seam and redo that part since I had some of it upside down but that was an easy fix.
It is crisp and cold in Maine today. I try to remind myself that I need to be thankful for the cold. It keeps me inside crafting! Once warm weather hits, then it is time to spend spare moments outside gardening and beautifying the yard and taking the kids to the beach. So the cold is good for some things!
What creative projects are you working on?
