Reading the tabs titled “An Introduction”, “Background” and “About” will help you know what this blog is about. You can track my 11-point star quilting project progress from day one to today.

Date: Day 132-139 Thursday-Thursday December 8-15, 2011

Project Accomplishments: None on the 11-point star. Read on to see what I did do.

Books:  Title: #14 — A Prisoner of Birth —  Author:  Jeffrey Archer– # of Discs: 13 — Listening time: 16 hours 30 minutes

Book Comments: no listening today

Exercise: basically static but not vegetative

Tools: mostly computer

Observations: A week has passed since my last post! It flew by. When I get into a mode of trying to meet a deadline, I get engrossed in what I am hoping to accomplish and spend every available minute doing the project. This is the case with turning 35 mm slides, that were scanned by Wal-Mart, into digital photos. This has been my primary focus for the past week I have two more discs full of about 133 slides each to look at, adjust in PhotoShop and save. This is a Christmas project for family members. I am now conceding that I may not get this done on time. It takes me about a day per disk of uninterrupted time. I have had interruptions each day since I started.

The slide project is something I procrastinated about since May 2008 so I am glad to be getting it done. I will use some of the photos in memory books. I will include the additional digital photos on a thumb drive.

I plan to work on the 11-point star project the week after Christmas and nothing else.

Prayer: Perhaps the fact that I have not written a prayer each day for the last week has contributed to the slowness of my slide project. I pray that I do a fine job of preparing the above slides for family members and that you speed my work, while helping me make good photo adjustment decisions.

Diversions: My diversions from the slide project included the following activities, Christmas preparations, home making and music. I also made some Christmas lace on my Janome embroidery machine. It was a first and fun project.
