small is right...I had grandiose ideas this past weekend that I would get a lot of hand sewing done. My husband puts on a softball tournament each year and this year added more more weekend, over Labor Day. I do a hospitality table with lunches for 150+ people on one of the days. I also help with registration. But other than that, I thought I would have a lot of hours of "down" time and was positive I would get sewing done. I ALWAYS have such high aspirations of what I can accomplish or will actually get to do! LOL
Since I'm done with the piecing part of my GFG, and I loved doing English Paper Piecing, I thought I would give this little wallhanging a go. See how much I got done this weekend! 6 measly little pieces...oh well, another 3 year project it looks like.
At least I have learned not to take my sewing machine, 10 projects AND a book to read! Does anyone else do that too? Or am I the only one with unrealistic ideas of how much one can really do?
I've been having troubles with blogger again. I try to make comments and it just waits and waits to bring up the screen and then times out. I tried to tell Judy that I liked her newest challenge idea and fabric. I could write the comment, but the little word verification picture wouldn't show up so I could fill in the blank. So, no messages on anyones, sorry. I am keeping up with everyone. To the NEW members on our ring--my apologies for not even acknowledging you! I put the entire ring on my bloglines and some must have joined after I had done that. I didn't even realize we had new members until I "surfed" the ring last weekend while at the hotel. I didn't have my computer, so the ring was my only way through. (hmm, guess I could have been sewing then--but I am nosy and like to see what everyone else is doing!) WELCOME to our newest members, glad to have you aboard and I'll add you to my bloglines so I don't miss a thing!
I just couldn't end without mentioning the death of Steve Irwin. I know a lot of people thought he was nuts, but it sure is sad. He died doing what he loved but leaves the world one ambassador for outdoor/animal lovers short. A prayer goes up for his wife and daughters, as he'll be sorely missed.
