Motivation Friday

Friday, November 27, 2009
I hope all who have celebrated Thanksgiving already had a great day. Tonight we go to Ken's side of the family, tomorrow we have mine. My food is almost complete for both days. Tonight I am taking sweet potatoes cooked in caramel sauce with nutmeg and chocolate mousse. Tomorrow I will take the desserts (pumpkin pie bars, pecan bars, and chocolate mousse) a broccoli casserole and more of the sweet potatoes. My sister Kathy and my FAVORITE brother in law Paul are providing the house (hardest item to get ready!) the turkey, dressing, and potatoes. The rest of us will provide the other food. I'm pretty sure my dad provided the turkey--but at almost 90 yo he won't cook it! Thanks dad!

My goals went well this week. Since there was nothing planned for yesterday, I sewed. I completed a top I took home from the MN Heartstrings sew in, it's very cute. For fun I quilted it with a variegated thread in yellows--I just thought it looked like it would go!

I finished the binding on the rosy red fleece quilt, but a picture of it will have to wait--it's a present! I went and separated my projects into current stacks.

Left to right it's two finished quilts, then two quilts to bind, and then three tops with backing ready to quilt. We won't even talk about the flimsies stacked up waiting their turn. And of course there are customer quilts, they go to the top of the list!

But it's been a very productive week, I'm happy. And although the busts this week will be small, there will be busts!
