I Changed My Mind

I am a woman. I can, and do, change my mind frequently. I have told my husband that I am going to make chicken and noodles, homemade noodles of course, homemade cranberry and orange relish, real mashed potatoes, and homemade hot rolls for supper. That evening when he comes in and sees Campbell’s soup and a ham sandwich and asks what happened to the chicken and noodles, I tell him I CHANGED MY MIND. The reason for this story is a way of leading up to the fact that I have changed my mind about doing the quilt that I told you about in my last post. Kathy and I went to the quilt shop and bought a few fat quarters and some of the background fabric for the quilt. Yesterday we both made a Lemoyne star block. It was not fun! It took me all morning to make it. I did mine on the machine. Kathy tried to hand piece hers. She said she felt like throwing it in the trash before she was finished. So……….Here we are. We talked and I told her that I didn’t think the project was something I wanted to do, and she agreed. It didn’t start out being fun, and I don’t want to do something that isn’t fun! I am getting to where I enjoy doing things that are small enough, or quick enough, to finish within a short time. I guess turning seventy has something to do with my attitude. I would prefer to start something I may live long enough to finish! That is all I have to say about our short lived grandiose plan for making this quilt……….except to say that I have a great pattern I would sell at a good discount………LOL

That sounds wise to me. Why bother with a project that is not going to be enjoyable. There are so many fun projects that you can easily find something that you can enjoy.
