Some weeks you feel like
you're riding with the wind,
but there are times when
you're definitely riding into the wind.
Those headwinds can be a challenge,
but maybe there are some strategies to stay upright.
Ignore your Speed.
Instead Focus on the Feeling
Last week I had a fall break.
My grands were back east in NC for a wedding.
So you would have thought
I could have accomplished a lot,
But I just couldn't get pedaling.
I tried to focus on the good feeling of
just accomplishing something.
I had previously prepped the last applique shapes
for the last border of my "Sutton Grange" quilt
designed by Di Ford.
They were ready to be glued in place.
And that's what I did.
Now when the wind dies down,
I'll begin to machine applique.
That's going to be fun.
Drop down a Gear
And Keep a Happy Attitude
Okay, so I knew I wasn't going to cross
off much on my list.
So I looked at that list
and figured out what I could finish
without getting thrown off balance.
I had the embroidery done
on two Halloween pieces
Rather than make two small pillows or projects,
I changed direction,
and put them back to back into one pillow.
It was a great solution.
Pompoms make everyone happy and
make a whimsical finish.
The 3 dimensional flowers
in the pattern can make you smile too.
Last Saturday we drove home from Denver
in a blinding blizzard.
We were driving right into the blowing snow.
It was slow going and dangerous.
But today the sun is shining and those
snow covered mountains in the distance look beautiful.
Wait a day,
and things can be different.
I have a good feeling about this week.
Until Next Time-
