If each day is a “gift”, I’d like to know where I can return the Monday.


Happy, happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready to begin this one with a smile and a song in your heart! I’m still lacking a little sew-jo, but here goes my update!

For the week of 10/2 – 10/8/23:

  • Finish October IB project and quilt it! ✔ Done! I’ll be posting it one day this week!
  • Get started on November IB project. ✘ Nope but I thought about it!! Does that count?
  • Maybe sew with my buddies Wednesday if everyone can get together. ✔ Done! We had a good therapy session!
  • There’s a squirrel I want to chase…hmmmm… ✘ Nope saved that squirrel for another day!

For the week of 10/9 – 10/15/23:

  • Start November IB project.
  • Guild meeting.
  • Squirrel or no squirrel? Whatever suits my fancy!!

    Happy Tuesday, Brenda. I sure hope you find a squirrel or two to chase this week. Hee! Hee! Looks like a great week of quilting is on the agenda.

    Your week looks pretty good to me! A finished IB project and buddy sewing time is terrific. Thinking on the November project is half the battle…you will get your plan together and sew like the wind when you are ready!

    Good morning, Brenda! Happy Monday and thanks for the linky party. It’s nice that you can start working on November’s IB project in mid-October. I look forward to seeing what it is! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    It definitely counts if you spend time thinking about a project. I often have thinking time and can come up with ideas of how to do something, what to do, change the concept. I’m a fan of thinking time!

    Haha yes thinking about a project counts! Glad you had a good “therapy” session with your buddies. Enjoy your week!

    If you finished one IB project and started thinking of the next you made good progress in my book;)

    The cartoon is so cute! Handmade quilts are expensive! I think $2000 is a reasonable deduction.

    Oh my, that cartoon really made me chuckle!!!
