A good day

Yesterday morning I was bound and determined to get some sewing in this afternoon. What I did is I made a list of things I wanted to accomplish today and then I inserted sewing in between my afternoon tasks

.
I am a "to do list" person …. I have to have a to do list otherwise I feel I am lost and do not get anything accomplished.
Seeing how it was supposed to be stinking hot and humid I gave myself just a couple hours in the morning to work outside.
I watered the seeds I planted,  tended to the chickens and was going to work on cleaning up my back porch. Well I was sitting there trimming Boston ferns and sweating like crazy, I decided my time was up and this was shortly before 9:00.
Then I came in and cleaned up and tended to the things on my list. And I'm happy to say I was able to get some sewing in.


I was able to finish one block and halfway complete another block. 


In addition I was also able to make some sauerkraut from the cabbages I picked this past weekend. I have at least a dozen more heads out in the garden that I'll need to pick here pretty soon. I never care for sauerkraut but since I started making my own I love it. So different than the stuff you buy.


One thing I didn't get completed -  that I was hoping to, was to finish my appliqué block that I had been working on. I just ran out of steam and time.

  1. Dear Kat,
    lovely accomplishments, like your blocks and the list.
    I make lists and charts and notes, just to be able to mark something off when done.
    Makes me feel good too.
    Greetings,
    Sylvia

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
