Since before our Lovely Daughter was born I have been creating a scrap quilt for her. It will look something like this
This isn't my quilt but rather an image of one I found on another blog I follow. The pattern is called 'tumbling blocks' - my dark diamonds are at the top, although I suppose if I turn the quilt around........
Anyway, I digress, as is my wont, my scrap quilt is still unfinished, and our daughter is now almost 21 and recently married :0
So, I thought I should make a real effort to finish the quilt before I embark on a wedding sampler for the happy couple (see previous post for an image of that I think). But, before I start another cross-stitch I should surely finish the one I am already working on.............a birth sampler for my 18 month old nephew. Then there are the projects on my waiting list, and a Buscilla Felt project for Christmas - last year I made a car, I have a gingerbread house for this year and if I want to finish it I really should make a start. Procrastination is my problem, my biggest fault in fact. Before I know what has happened I will have wasted a day doing not very much. This is something I would like to change. I must change. Wasting time is a terrible thing I think.
Ahh, I hear you cry dear reader, there is always a 'but' - and it's true, there often is. and my 'but' is this - what defines a waste of time? My guess is that what one person considers to be a waste of time another will consider to be time well spent.
For example. When on holiday (or indeed in every day life but I do have other things to do!!) one of my most favourite things is to sit in the shade and read a good book. I have spent many happy hours with our children and my mother in law sat in BebekPark, Istanbul
