to go to bed without blogging. Time was, I wouldn't have dreamed of it. But I was 3 years younger and more energetic. I used all my energy tonight, quilting. Yes, putting a piece under the needle and putting in the stitches. I have been complaining about this process forever, but reading Sarah Ann Smith's article in Machine Quilting Unlimited, which magically arrived free last week, has made me think there is hope for me. I didn't hate it so much tonight, although I did manage to get up every 5 minutes and go get coffee, look in the fridge, put in my eye drops, iron where I had stitched, change threads, and check my e-mail. This made it bearable but did slow things up just a teensy bit. I keep changing thread colors but as far as the stitching, I decided the hell with it - just do it. So here is a smidgen, which I will probably not finish till next week - but at least I have started.If you click to enlarge and tilt your head, you can see the stitches. I know you don't think it's a big deal, but I feel pretty good about it. So good, I can go to sleep so I'm up early for my dentist appointment. Before I go, I was reminded this morning as I was responding to an e-mail, that I have a list of top ten best things. But I'm so tired I can only remember 3 of them. #1 a good hot shower #2 a good laugh #3 a good cup of coffee. What are your top three best things?
