Finish What You Have ! That's an ORDER !!
Gimme an "F" -- F ! Gimme a "W" -- W ! Gimme a "Y" -- Y ! Gimme an "H" -- H ! What does it spell? "FWYH !" What does it mean ? "FINISH WHAT YOU HAVE ! (i.e. GET THE LEAD OUT !!! -- THIS MEANS YOU -- I mean ME !!) This is Vicki's brainstorm -- check out her blog Turkey Feathers where she first talked about it.
So, as we all know, I have quite a few projects that fit into this category .... and there's one in particular that I really want to get finished for a sweetie pie niece's upcoming birthday (I'm hoping this year's birthday, but let's not write that in stone just yet! ) SO........ Gimme a "T" -- T ! Gimme an "I" -- I ! Gimme an "A" -- A! Gimme an "R" -- R ! Gimme an "A" -- A ! Gimme an "S"--S! What does it spell? Tiaras ! What does it mean? That Ifinally finished sewing on "Sparkly Tiaras" but I still have to finish machine appliqueing on "Fuzzy slippers" ! then, quilt and bind the whole quilt, too........ Ok, so here's the plan .... a weekend sewing marathon!!! If I do that, I know I'll finish at least sewing on "Fuzzy Slippers"! Oops, wait a minute -- it's already 2:30 Saturday afternoon (soccer practice and laundry have taken up the first half of the day).. OK, so here's the revised plan -- if I start now, I can at least get "Fuzzy Slip" sewn on ! Oops, wait a minute -- I still have to finish up paperwork for my job left over , as usual, from the past week and get to the grocery store since most of tomorrow will be taken up by yet another one of Kid #1's dirt bike races ...... OK, so here's the revised revision of the original plan --- If I sew a little bit tonight and a little bit tomorrow night (as in a total of 1 hour , I can at least get "Fuz" sewn on !! ....... OK !! NOW We're talkin' !!!! How's THAT for progress?!?!!!!! Just Zoomin' right along !!!!! To be continued .....
