I haven't felt this relaxed for a very long time and part of the reason is that I've applied one of my goals for 2007 - do not get overwhelmed by the size of a task. This is what usually stops me in my tracks. I see a job as being too complex or too difficult, so I run away from starting it at all.
Today I painted a door. Not a huge job, but one step towards the greater objective of finishing the painting of my kitchen. The door looks beautiful and I have a sense of achievement. Tomorrow, I may paint a cupboard.
I've been breaking down my current quilt into steps too. Today I did masses of cutting and stitching of fabric strips to make more pieces for my scrap quilt. Here's a photo of the first rows.
I want to make a bed size quilt from these strips and put a border around it. It is the simplest design, but I am having so much fun. I think I might make another one in blue, white and yellow - there is probably enough fabric in my stash to do that!
