Kicking Butt

I haven't been doing much quilting lately because I am always so tired at the end of the day.  Not sure if it is old age or what, but this year is really taking a toll on me.  So yesterday, I decided to take control of my exhaustion and just do something!  I loaded and started the Christmas quilt yesterday morning and finished it last night.  These quilts are bigger so take about 30 minutes to quilt.

This morning I had to take my son to school so he could leave on a robotics trip.  He had to be there at 5:15.  He got home last night around 11pm.

After coming home this morning and sleeping, I woke up at 8 and saw that the landscape guy was out working.  I figured I could either sit on my butt or kick it into gear and get another quilt done.  About half way through it I wanted to sit down, but then looked out at the guy installing sprinklers and digging holes.  I felt guilty for wanting to quilt when all I'm doing is stepping sideways and moving my arm :)

Hoping to get one more at least loaded today.

Goodwill is having 50% off clothes today, so I may be tempted to head out and see if I can find a Cardinal's T-shirt for my daughter who is going to school in St. Louis.  Neither one of us likes baseball, but I do love the Cardinal's uniform.  Who could go wrong with a red shirt with a bird on it?

I had to some butt kicking today too. It`s good for us once in a while. Allergies got me a bit down and not in the mood to sew, but I sat at the machine for a while. Have to finish a Christmas quilt. Loved your post.
