The weather is overcast and cool - perfect for my sewing mission.
I have been up for a while, drinking tea, listening to the radio and starting on the sewing.
In the early morning hours I am often happy with my before bed routine of clearing my sewing table. It is a surviving habit from working in an accounting office for many years.
Like I before put my papers and pens away I now put away the scissors, cutters, spools and pencils away.
It is good to let a de-cluttered sewing table greet me in the morning. It is not without thing on it - not at all - but not chaos and no empty cups from yesterday.
Today's sewing mission is to do as much as possible on the Starboat quilt top.
I am in quote mode - here goes:
"Try a thing you haven't done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. and a third time, to figure out whether you like it or not."
- Virgil Thompson,
My conclusion: Now I have worked on the Starboat blocks three times and I like it :-)
"Persistence is what makes the impossible possible, the possible likely, and the likely definite."
- Robert Half, Executive
My conclusion: My persistence level is high today - I will see some results on this quilt before I know it :-)
