3/25/14 - Tuesday

Today started good, ended rough. But we keep plugging along. Other than a quick breakfast with BFF there weren't many positive highlights to my day.  I spent part of the day getting a donation together, we made cookies and dinner, don't forget the laundry, some filing and making plans for a necessary change in my son's education.

Some small progress has been made on Bethlehem Block 4. 

When I met with BFF this morning, I was able to share my quilt top. I reported yesterday that I felt it belonged in the hall of shame because I felt I had made so many mistakes. 

Because she's such a good friend, and has a great eye for color and detail, she looked at it and told me I was nuts. She said there was nothing wrong with my work and liked what I had done. One of the many reasons we are such good friends. We can share constructive critism, encouragement, comfort and guidance. So maybe, just maybe, I was being too hard on myself. It wouldn't be the first time.

So as I struggle with my family issues and trying to get my March goals accomplished, I'm thinking about April goals - thinking about Easter/Spring projects. Gardening season is just around the corner. So much to do, so easily and quickly overwhelmed. I think I'll just go back to work on Bethlehem and leave all those thoughts for another day.

Thank you for stopping by,

Wishing you a creative day.
