Do what you can

Today my motto has to be just “do what you can” because it has been a backward day.

  1. Shearer postponed for another day

  2. Mother and son sheep got out.   I put them back in and then thought I secured the door.   As I was leaving she pushed the door so hard, that I hit the ground.  So they are temporarily in another stall, but they could get into the main part of the barn.   Other than make a big mess, that won’t hurt anything.

  3. Dog has been getting out of pasture, but maybe that has been conquered.

  4. I had a lot of stitches to take out of this table runner because the thread jumped out of the tension disk.

  5. People are dying.   3 people from church in the last 2 weeks is just too much.   One of whom was a good friend.   I got to thinking maybe I could spend my time better.  What if I reorganized everything so that if I passed on, it would be easy for someone to come in and disperse all my things.    Never mind, won’t happen.  I can’t get that organized and still work.   But there are areas that I could and should clean out.   I’ll have to give that some more thought.

So after all that happened, I decided to put the binding on the quilt “Tell it to the Stars” that I showed you yesterday.  Putting binding on the quilt was something I could do and did.   It is finished now except for washing.   The size is 60 x 80″

    I am so sorry that your day didn’t go as planned. Some days that happens to all of us. Hope things turn around. At least you accomplished something that I’m still workong on–putting a binding on my 3rd UFO for the year. The binding is on, but I’ve been hand stitching a side/night.

    Hope tomorrow will be the day that everything goes just the way you want.

  2. That looks good Sharon! And it feels so good to get something accomplished – especially on days like you’ve just had…
    I’ve spent the most part of the last 2 weeks working on getting my sewing room cleaned up and organized – gave away a lot of yarn, and have 2 bags full of stuff to go to the Bibles For Missions thrift store – it feels good!
    I got a bit of sewing done yesterday, but don’t have much to show for it – same with my knitting – and then the day just feels like a total waste of time.
