Patience was not one of my positive virtues in my younger days.
Although I’ve mellowed somewhat and I’m a heck of a lot better now, I still struggle with the “P” word at times…like when I’m waiting for an order to arrive. I think because we live in a small, rural town located halfway between two major cities, our mail gets re-routed and resorted to either one resulting in a delay and ultimately, a test of my patience. They’re winning…trust me.
Yep, you guessed it…my stitching order has still not arrived. *sigh* I know it’s been sent because I received an envelope in my mail box this past Wednesday with a receipt of my credit card charges, so it most definitely is not the supplier’s fault. It’s the postal system…testing my patience again. *grrrrr*
So what’s a gal to do? I don’t want to start a new project because I’ll be doing that as soon as my order arrives. Now look what I pulled out of hiding!
You can tell by the folds that it’s been hidden away for a while but I managed to add the two hexie flowers on the bottom right this morning. All of the flowers have been made and are just waiting to be added.
I still have another 6 rows of flowers to add and I know that I’ll run out of the connecting “pathways” before I’m done, so they will have to be made up at some point. Thank goodness I’m not in a rush to get this completed. I gave myself two years to complete this quilt…and guess what? The two years will be up in September. ..of this year. I’m cautiously optimistic…very cautious. *wink*
In the interim, I’ve been knitting my socks at night while watching the Olympics and I’ve also designed another quilt. The preliminary sketches and line drawings have been done. Now I just have to fine tune them, complete the stitched blocks and then piece and assemble the quilt.
My “betwixt and between” funk didn’t last too long and I’m on a roll again!
