I have been working on a quilt that I like, but somehow, I was allowing myself to be distracted from it. The expression, "Just Do It"was not working for me, either. My sweet husband overheard a conversation I was having with my sister where I told her I was having trouble staying focused on the task. I guess he heard the problem and had the solution because I have accomplished more in the past 24 hours than I have in the last week. I was telling my sister that I thought I was wandering out of the studio and getting involved in other "moving" tasks because I was cold. For me cold hands and feet are not new, but the old solution does not work any more. (I used to make myself a hot drink and heat a rice bag for my feet and relax with them for 5-10 minutes, but I am trying to cut back on my consumption of calories and just using the rice bag made me notice my cocoa desire more.) Riding my recumbent bike for 20 minutes helps for a while, but I would have to do it at least 5-6 times a day and that in and of itself is a time stealer. My husband apparently had a great solution, immediately. I now have a little heater in the room and I only have to leave to use the Internet, potty, eat or answer the phone.
Goals for today, quilt-wise, are to quilt a lap size quilt and make at least 12 more blocks for the "English garden" quilt. Life is good.
