Doom


Let's stop and look at the lovely bowl full of my 1.25" hexagons. I have about 180 made of the 352 needed for my quilt. They sprang up during my Hawaii flights and since then during movie nights and while waiting in the car for lacrosse practice to end. I love a portable project!



When I turn around I see this stack that has bee waiting since Sunday night. I found a wonderful use for all the crazy novelty prints I bought when I first started to think about quilts. (I was never going to be a 'quilter'. I was just going to make my son a crafty i-spy blanket. Little did I know!)

These will become pillowcases for children - donated to ConKerr Cancer.



Oh dear, here's the baby quilt that I was ahead of the game on, draped over a chair waiting to be basted. The baby came early yesterday! Eeeek!



And there's the DOOM. In a crazy moment last fall I volunteered to head up organizing our troop's week at Boy Scout Camp. What was I thinking?! I made myself a list just so I could happily cross things off, as it's still a crazy long list and we leave on Sunday and I'm freakin' out a little. I ride the bus 4 hours to camp with 56 boys. I'm thinking some ear plugs and a pile of hexagons are seriously needed here.

the hexies look so yummy in their sparkling clean dishes!

I try to remind myself if it's important enough to God for me to get something finished today, He will move heaven and earth for me to get it done. if it doesn't get done today, it will still be there tomorrow! or some other sweet person will be blessed and allowed to take care of it!
