My brother has a saying, “Some days you start in the pole position yet you still come in last.” A car racing reference. It’s about starting in great positioning at the front. Then, despite your best efforts, you finish in last place. Well, sometimes it happens
I was off to a great start with a 4 mile run. Then, I proceeded to accomplish what seems like next to nothing the rest of the day. Does that ever happen to you?
The Muddle in the Middle
I spent most of my day getting things done around the house. While cleaning, I noticed the pile of quilted items in my sewing room awaiting bindings. I decided I better spend some of my day making that pile a little smaller.
But I didn’t. Yes, I cut the binding fabric for all the quilts in the pile. I even finished piecing the last strips on the Halloween Quilt-as-you-go table runner. I organized the pile, too. But the pile is still there, awaiting bindings.
I didn’t get downstairs to work with SusieQ either. I did get my plan complete for stitching out Winter Star. Still, the top and backing need ironing. Then, mounting and basting. All before I can even start the quilting.
Some decluttering occurred as well. Yet, this morning I still see a few piles of clutter around the house. I did laundry, yet this morning, there is still one more load to fold and put away.
A New Day
It was one of those days. Today, is a new day. My plan is preparing the bindings for some of those quilts and attaching at least a few of them. Then I’ll meet up with SusieQ and get Winter Star started.
How do you recover from a day of missing the mark?
Until till next time,
