Considering my usual level of activity, and finishes (or at least progress made) this month is looking pretty dismal. Why? Well, I'll explain.
I returned from vacation on the 4th, to find out I needed to evacuate for Hurricane Matthew. They wanted people to go inland 100 miles from the South Carolina coast. Well, I didn't get back from that until October 9.
George did the yard clean up, we only had minimal tree debris. He also helped in the neighborhood with some tree limbs that stopped folks from entering their house safely.
I took care of getting all laundry caught up. Clean bedding, and a general zone up of house that sat for 18 days, some of those days were without power. We only lost two items from the refrigerator. We try to have nothing that will spoil in it when we go on vacation. I spent a bundle at the grocery store and just putting it all away seamed to be taking all my energy. I hadn't realized just how stressed, on the inside, I was about that hurricane. But, it's past now and I know what to do if another one comes- get myself outta here! lol
I had two clients, each with four quilt tops, that needed to have things quilted. Finally, a few pictures!
And Paulette's four:
I did some quilting on this wallhanging/table topper. It needs more quilting. Then the binding, and a brown center is best for a sunflower!
It's Saturday the 29th and my focus is not on being creative at the moment. I'm going to give myself a 'break' by posting this now and that way I'll stop fretting over having no 'finished' items to show for the month. My kitchen windows are clean! That makes me happy to. I guess I generally don't look at getting seasonal cleaning done as a creative endeavor. I really should, considering how creatively I can get when I'm looking for reasons to not clean! Anybody else have 'creative focus' issues going on?
May God bless you with a unique idea this week, one that surprises you! Luann
