Motivation. Wow! Such a big word. I need motivation, a lot of motivation. I thought when I got through with making the embroidered pillowcase dress for my great niece that I would really be motivated to get started on Rhea's quilt. Not! I have since finished two scarves that I had started for Christmas gifts. I have one more left to finish. I just need to make the flowers to go on it and it will be done. As long as it takes me to hand knit something, I have decided that I am not going to be a great knitter. I can crochet pretty good. I can crochet probably most anything just as long as it is not tiny thread. When using tiny thread my fingers just get all tangled in the thread and I lose my place.

Now my MIL aka Mom can do beautiful hand crocheted lace table scarves. I even have a full round table scarf that she crocheted to fit my dining room table. It is beautiful. Plus I have numerous scarves on end tables, bookshelves and dressers. I just love them.

I am still in the process of cleaning up my sewing/bedroom and making shelves to go on the wall for more organization. I just hate all the mess that is in there right now. Steve , my DH, owes me a day sanding on my shelves so I can get them painted and hung on the wall. Also one of the pieces of wood is going to be my new cutting table to put my cutting mat on. The piece that I have now is just not quite wide enough for my cutting mat and I think that is very important to have before I start cutting the fabric for the quilt. I have the boxes ready to put the cut pieces in so everything will be organized and I can accomplish what I have set out to do. So... Maybe... just maybe I haven't lacked as much motivation as I had previously thought when I started this particular post.

Well...It's time for me to finish modge podging the metal brackets to match the shelves. Until next time... Motivation... motivation
