Tonight I sat down and realized I just don’t have enough time to put something together for the International Quilt Festival of Ireland. Even if I didn’t work on anything else until mid-January I just don’t feel like I could do an exhibit piece justice in the middle of holiday season and all the other myriad things that come up. After deciding I wasn’t going to worry with it I felt better even though I was a little sad.
I’ve just got too much going on to start stacking up more things on my plate. It seems like when I get one thing finished two or three things hop on so I’ve gotta re-prioritize and think about what I really want to do.
Tonight what I really wanted to do was cut out some more triangles for the Orca Bay mystery quilt and then when I got tired of that I sandwiched one of my new corgi wallhanging tops and quilted it. I think it turned out really cute. Can’t wait to get the binding on it and list it on Etsy. I love the color scheme so much it hurts to let it go!
Saying “no” sometimes is an important thing even if it is hard. I’m so looking forward to getting off work early tomorrow, picking up a few things at the grocery store and hanging out with the corgis. Basil is getting a pre-Thanksgiving bath so he is fresh for the drive up to the in-laws. The other two corgis are getting furminated.
I think Basil looks so cute when he gets a bath don’t you?
