It’s Friday and I’m late posting this. Actually I’m late even writing this, but instead of apologizing and taking time to do so, I’ll just jump right in and assume that you all forgive me. It’s better than no post at all, right? 🙂
We’re smack-dab in the middle of intern check out week here on the farm. Forty-five bright eyed bushy tailed Polyface intern wanna-be’s are working their hardest to impress us and we’re just hoping they all don’t go running and screaming the other way. It’s always great fun to meet new faces and hear about different life’s journeys. We always wish we could take them all, but alas, it wouldn’t be an intern program if we did.
In the midst of this week, I’m also finishing up getting ready for Christmas and trying to get some quilting in. It’s winter and I always want to quilt in the winter.
One of our young gals that was here this week, asked this: “So you’re cooking for all of us, homeschooling, marketing and everything else, how in the world do you find time to quilt?”
This was my answer, “Fifteen minutes here, ten minutes there. If I waited until I had a chunk of several hours to craft, I’d never get anything done.”
This got me thinking. Truly life it like that, isn’t it? Little bits of time you spend here and there adding up to a whole afternoon or day. I’ve started spending my few minutes waiting on everyone to come in for dinner quilting. When I’m on the phone with a talkative family member or friend, I keep my hands busy -wash the dishes, fold a load of clothes or better yet, crochet or knit those pot holders, I’m in desperate need of.
What about you? What little moments do you use to catch some extra time for the things you dearly love to do? How do you squeeze your hobbies into your day or week?
Now I’m going to leave you with some pictures of my completed Spinning Stars Quilt. I gave it to my sister for her birthday and she loved it. 🙂
And I’m still working on my Farmer’s Wife Quilt…here’s my progress on that so far (40 blocks done so far, 71 to go)
