Why? Well, I REALLY hate shopping, to tell you the truth ;D ...but seriously, here is how I see it. When there is something that needs to be done, it requires the same amount of work to accomplish it whether you do it now or later. If it is done last minute, there is a TON of additional stress that is not there if the chore is finished earlier. So WHY ON EARTH would I put things off until last minute if there is another, more sane and peaceful way to do it???
Now, I know that there are often times when we just can't help that things are last minute. I get that. It happens to me. When this does happen, I break out my CHOP CHOP action and start cutting stuff out. If it can possibly go by the wayside, the chore is given the BOOT!! Maybe I just have such a bad reaction to stress that I have needed to adapt and learn how to do this, but I have to say, I am MUCH happier for learning this skill :) Enough rambling :)
Here is what I sewed on Monday :)
..and half of the "?" block :) Two and a half more blocks to go!!!
Angela's QAL ROCKS!
I had to stop with the Mario stuff because my hubby came home and I really wanted to watch The Amazing Spiderman with my family!!! ....so I hand bound my friends DARLING baby quilt.
Brittany made this quilt and it is SPECTACULAR!!!! She had a baby last week just couldn't get the binding sewn on :\
She paper pieced the dragon flies :)
They are three dimensional!!!
Brittany did a BEAUTIFUL job!!!
