Author:
Book Comments: Today I want to finish a book titled the Book Woman’s last Fling. I read it in the past and it is a good book.  I haven’t done this yet.
Exercise:
Tools:
Observations: 
Prayer: Thank you lord, for the rain showers we had this morning. Our area needs this and more. Give me direction this afternoon. Help me to feel that I have accomplished worthwhile tasks.

Diversions:  Today I seemed to be in limbo. I have done a bit of this and a bit of that but have had no real direction. I will work on bridge hand rails today as I did yesterday with the help of H. We are on our last one. Yeah! I am waiting for fabric to begin the 50th wedding anniversary quilt. Once I get that, the top should go steadily.

Finish the 11-point star project I have a good start on this and simply need to dedicate time to it. – This project design, completed on October 8, 2009, was the primary topic for beginning my 2011 blog and I worked on it until various diversions took me to other arenas.

  1. My granddaughter and grandson requested stuffed toy chickens. I purchased the supplies, have five cut out and have three nearly completed and parts of the others ready to sew once I change thread colors on my machine. This began February 19, 2012 when my visiting grand children requested this. finished  five large chickens. Of those 2 were brown, 2 were white and 1 was a pink and purple print. This project also included six small yellow chicks and 8 plastic eggs. I completed this project on Friday July 20 and mailed them out on Saturday July 21. Yipee!
  2.  My Grandson requested  a quilt. I made the pattern for the quilt but have to print it.
  3. Help husband build a 27-foot long bridge across a creek. This project began 4/6/2001 when we purchased a magazine featuring a small attractive bridge.
  4. The making of a 50th anniversary double wedding ring quilt for my sister and her husband. I purchased some of the fabric and ordered the remaining. Ordering took place on July 16, 2012. The quilt needs to be done by the first of November, 2012. I scheduled machine quilting already.
  5. I purchased machine embroidery designs to make a machine embroidery quilt and tested the designs on scrap fabric. I was unable to find the fabric I had in mind so this project has been waiting for “inspiration” to arrive. I purchased the designs on February 5, 2011. On July 16, I ordered some of the supplies to proceed with this project.
  6. I started another book quite a while ago I sent a book proposal to a company in 2008, which was rejected so I set it aside while deciding if I could self-publish the topic and make it a popular subject for quilters. The materials sit in a project box.
  7. While in Paducah, KY, in April 2012, I purchased supplies to make a cloth purse. I have yet to start this. The materials sit in a project box.

 I can probably come up with more but should probably organize these by date or importance and probably put my grandchildren first. The chickens should be easy to finish. The 50th anniversary quilt should be next.
