I’m trying to change my mindset about what I need to accomplish on a day to day, week to week basis. I’m typically very goal oriented but right now I just need to cut myself some slack. Yesterday, I fretted about everything I didn’t get done but today I’ve decided that it’s OK to just be happy puttering without assigning myself specific goals or tasks that have to be accomplished.
I put my music on, loaded a quilt on the longarm, and pulled out some fat quarters to start a new quilt. I don’t want to have to think too hard so I’m making a 16 Patch quilt, one with oversized blocks. I didn’t finish anything but spent several very happy hours just slowly puttering. Keith’s out of town so I might go up later tonight and work a little more if I feel like it.
This is my favorite fat quarter friendly quilt right now – 12 fat quarters makes a smaller kid size quilt.
And 20 fat quarters makes a nice lap size quilt.
I’ve also decided that it’s fine to take several shorter walks during the day rather than one long one. My step average suffered a little last week but I did a lot of kayaking so I’m OK with it for now but I want to get that average back up over 10,000 a day.
