The eternal quilting optimist...
In life I am quite the pessimist. I justify this by thinking that by preparing for the worst I am being well prepared for whatever life may throw at me.
In quilting I am the opposite. What I think I can achieve over a day/week and what I can actually fit in, are two very different things!
So last week when I said I would be back with a quilt top 'in a week or so' - that was me being delusional. :-) (and just quietly I thought I could get the quilt top finished, start a Swoon quilt (as I just joined some quilt-along) and thought I could catch up on my Some Kind of Wonderful quilt.) Yep, delusional. I think I might have forgotten that I had four kids, that BAS's are due (tax stuff)and not quite expected the 180mm of rain...
This is what I actually managed to get done this week..
..and so..being a bit more realistic..expect me back with a finished quilt in about oh, 4 weeks or so...
And on a good note, Jay (my youngest) made it to pre-school and managed no 'accidents' and has had a really good week, as far as the toilet training goes. I'm am starting to see a future with no nappies...which will be the first time for about 11 years! I'm looking forward to it..and the added money into the budget!
Hope you have a great week!
PS. A quote for the week - Unless life also gives you sugar and water, it's going to be pretty crap lemonade! :-)
