Work in Progress

The highly anticipated school holidays have finally arrived!


It think we were all ready for a break in the routine and some time out; although it is for some of us in the house a time to study and prepare for year-end exams.  It is a stressful time for DD18. It is a stress that seems to transfer easily upon those around her as we only wish her the very best.  It is hard to stand back ... and let go ...


And so, I am going to do the only thing that I can do and that is be present.  At home.  Keeping myself busy with what I normally do.


Each day I set myself a readily achievable goal.  Most days I finish the set task, although sometimes later in the day than is considered reasonable.  If only I could get myself organized earlier in the day.  Yesterday's task was to rotary cut the custom quilt I am hoping to finish by the end of the week.  

Today's goal:  to sew this pile of fabric squares into a quilt top.

  1. I don't know about you, but for me rotary cutting is one of my favorite parts of quilt making.

    Hoping for as little stress as possible during school break in your household.
