It’s been too long

Oh my, I’ve been traveling so much lately…I added it up – over the last 43 days I’ve been gone 24 of them! Ugh, not my idea of fun 😦  Albeit, 10 of those days were for vacation but having them sandwiched in between business travel was just not a good idea.

I’m back home now and I have no plans to travel through the end of the year – aahhhh. I have lots of things I need to do right here at home:

  • Sewing/quilting
    • Finish Christmas tree table runner
    • Finish Pink Camo/Bunny crib quilt
    • Catch up with Amanda’s QAL (she’s already on block 6!!)
    • Finish Dog Gone Cute blocks/quilt
    • Start king size quilt-as-you-go for my niece
    • Finish black/white quilt
    • …and much more I can’t recall just now
  • Running
    • Get back into a regular schedule
    • Train for Half Marathon in March
  • Weight Watchers
    • Yep, I re-joined!
    • Grocery shopping – so I have better choices in the house
    • Need to drop 28 lbs

I’m sure there are many other things that should be on this list but that’s all that comes to mind at the moment. And, I’ve already checked one thing off this list!!! I finished the Christmas tree table runner last night!! It just needed to be quilted and have the binding put on but for some reason I had been procrastinating really badly :-s

I did FMQ using swirl circles on the trees, and random loops in the background. I tried to do a ‘ribbon candy’ effect on the red striped section…not sure how successful I was – lol  This table runner will be mailed off to my friend in California, just in time for her to start decorating later this month…whew!

It’s been raining A LOT here in South Carolina for the past several weeks and it’s no different today, so I’ll be spending most of the day in the sewing room…let’s see what else I can check off my list!!
