Do you ever find yourself feeling overwhelmed with all that needs to be done?
Lately, I have been trying to finish projects for link up parties; participate in the New Blogger’s Blog Hop; prepare for our upcoming local Craft & Quilt Fair; have worked casually as a relief Teacher Assistant; and have been super busy with my usual home/school/sport life with my husband and three children.
Please, don’t get me wrong. I made the choice to link up to these finish parties and love the incentive they give me; I am extremely grateful for the support and opportunity to meet other new bloggers/quilters from all over the world in the New Bloggers Blog Hop; I am thrilled to be involved for the first time in this year’s Craft & Quilt Fair; I enjoy my occasional bit of “paid” work; and I am very blessed to have my wonderful family life.
Notice those words above that are highlighted in bold text? I’m doing ok…I just need to learn how to breathe!!
Whenever I get hung up on all my “have to’s”, guess what I do?
I start a new fun project that is purely for my own enjoyment! Crazy, huh? 😉
Last month, Yvonne, aka Quilting Jetgirl, posted a tutorial for a Quarter Log Cabin Mini Quilt.
This is a really enjoyable tutorial which uses a lot of chain piecing, a technique that I love. After cutting up all of my strips, I was able to work on this project whenever I felt like it – usually a border at a time or whatever time I could spare!
I’ve been playing around with different arrangements of these blocks
Personally, for me, it’s a choice between 4 and 5.
