Have you ever been so focused on tasks that you block out the rest of the world? I do it sometimes when I have a great book, but I always thought I was more aware of my surroundings when I am quilting.
Monday through Friday I get up, shower, and put on my swimsuit, so that I will have NO excuses for missing my water exercise class. Then I clean up around the house and hit the studio for my first couple of hours of sewing. I generally set a timer to give me a heads up on time, but I either forgot or was in the laundry room when it went off. For the better part of 4 months, this routine has been working great, but yesterday, I was so focused on the quilting tasks I had set for myself that I actually forgot to go to the pool. My friend called at 9:45 and that was what made me remember. Of course the class was over. I am going to take some teasing today! The good news is that I got so much done that even I am impressed with my efforts.
