As I reflect on this week in America I am sad then I am proud that we can dust ourselves off mentally and move forward. That is a good thing and all I will mention about all of the events of this week in America …
We have made great progress this week around here… Rick got a recliner… we located cushions for the rocking chair… other chairs found other places to be too… I went through the final non sewing room box in the house and we rearranged a bit after that. Rick got a kitchen bar he is building in usable condition waiting for stain and a top for it … and where is that skill saw he wonders????!!!
I got the above organizer for my computer monitor to sit on which lives on a cool wood and formica hotel style table with no drawer… here in the bedroom… I don’t use it much anymore… just to blog and search for items we wanna buy actually … I look at emails and such on my phone more lately! So this is a fine place for it to land in our little cabin.
I plan to put on fresh nail polish strips today so all my nail stuff is out you can see… otherwise this is my contained clutter I love living with 🙂
I really enjoy having “pretty” nails and I work and quilt…
So now to share you you all and Kathy Quilts Stitching crew You can find them all HERE)…. I have had a productive week… I did work on the chicken but no more pics of them for a bit… I want the recipient to be surprised with what I do next 😉
I got so much done this week… I may be able to slow stitch my way off the frame today… The texture of the quilting will have them touching it all the time I think! It is sooo cool!!!!! But seriously, then it will have to rest for a bit… I have the binding, backing, label, extra fabric if I think of anything else I need and enough for the hanging sleeve for them… I have talked to them about hanging this…so it is green light for their upcoming wedding in April EXCEPT I need to focus on getting my sewing room set up from boxes! lol
Yep, my sewing room has had NO attention.. I have been fine with that but I have mending and hemming to do, shirts to cut out and sew together for my honey and a couple quilts to throw together as I have time… I need my sewing room now! lol
As I have been cleaning, organizing, sorting, sewing, and quilting and embroidering… I have been listening to podcasts and Audible books on my phone through my headphones…
First I wanna share Atomic Habits by James Clear… the author of the book reads it and it is LIFE CHANGING. My son Michael is gonna listen to it so we can challenge each other and have someone to hold us each accountable… I am excited.. On chapter 3 on this one and LOVE IT!!!
Next up I got my Bible when I unpacked initially and I am ready to attempt to understand this book better with this online podcast that is also on YouTube from the first season which is similar to the 3rd season of this year of the bible series. It is amazing how Tara Leigh Cobble’s commentary challenges you personally to read and make your own assessments… HERE is a link to the Youtube Playlist if you are interested ❤
It is an oasis of calm in the midst of this week in history! Look toward God y’all!!!! funniest thing is… I never read non fiction and both of these studies are non fiction! lol
Have you ever plugged in a good book or some music and just quilted, cleaned, organized whatever and realized 30 minutes and lots of accomplishments had happened??? That was my week 🙂
Take care my friends and thanks for leaving a comment about you favorite part of this post today… I would love to continue to provide you with uplifing content 😀
