Prairie Moon

Prairie Moon challenge

Organize your finished quilts

How does she do it?  I've been looking at that pile of quilts thinking I need to do something different with them.
I normally don't have many hanging around, but it seems I have not found homes for too many of them.

Zen things:


1. Do one thing at a time. 
2. Do it slowly and deliberately. 
3. Do it completely. 
4. Do less. 
5. Put space between things. 
6. Develop rituals. 
7. Designate time for certain things. 
8. Devote time to sitting. 
9. Smile and serve others. 
10. Think about what is necessary. 
11. Live simply. 

I'm quilting

finally, I got the purple and green quilt loaded and have almost the first pass done.
this is a big quilt, so it is going to take some time.
It feels good to run the long arm!

Prairie Moon Organizational Challenge

My week was NOT one that allowed me to do much of anything but band booster things. :(

I did a few other things with my computer files, but not at all what needs to be done.
