Birthdays show you just how fast time is flying by, especially as you get older.
My 3-year-old grandson tells everyone he is 3 1/2.
My 8-year-old grandson says he is 10.
Now at my age, if I even admit it, I am certainly NOT going to add on a few months or years to my age; but if one birthday isn't bad enough, now I have the local Hallmark's sending me a card celebrating my "half" birthday.
No, no, no......I do not need to be reminded how fast time is flying by.
I already know it is going too fast.
Well, that card got me into the sewing room today to get my butt in gear and get busy on my Hearts and Hands quilt that has been in the making way too long. No more procrastinating. This quilt needs to be done so that I can move on to something new without regrets or guilt.
I turned this final pile
of un-ironed blocks into pressed blocks.
Trimmed off the excess Pellon.
Now ALL remaining blocks are prepped and ready to be glue basted and stitched in place. That's what I am doing next.
I truly am seeing the light at the end of this tunnel (at least where a quilt top is concerned). I certainly don't want time to run out on me where this quilt is concerned, so most likely the next time you hear from me, I will have stitched several more blocks down to the background. I CANNOT let time be wasted.
Wish me luck.
Oh, by the way.....I am ignoring ALL half-birthdays from here on out.
