A Very Busy Sunday

Hello Internet People!  Sorry that Mother was MIA today, but she has been a busy little bee taking care of things that needed to be done.  This afternoon and evening I put together a whole bunch of quilt kits for making baby quilts from.  The plan is to put one of each type together as tutorials for the "Make It With Mother" Blog, and then offer the other kits for sale with the patterns.  Whether or not any of them will actually sell is a whole different story, but I think it is worth a try.  

At least I was semi-forward thinking this time.  I was laying out the different kits on top of my bed, since that is the only place large enough to work on.  I laid a few foam core boards down first, and then laid the blocks out on those.  Once I had them all arranged, I took pictures!  For the first time in my quilting career I actually made a plan that I can follow all the way through to the end.  I have patterns made up but they use different fabric so trying to remember which one went where is always a challenge.  Not this time.  I am so damn proud of myself.

And, I am so damn tired!  It has been a long month, and it has taken its toll.  I guess it is a good tired, since I have been actually getting things done, but I could sure use some more energy to go with all the new motivation.  I am working on that.  I am trying to force myself to eat more often.  I know I am not consuming enough non-empty calories.  I function on pure sugar and caffeine most of the time, but I need a lot more than that if I am going to continue for much longer.  So, I have been putting some real effort into making myself eat actual food, and hopefully I can pull myself back out of this downward spiral I have been on lately.

Now that the summer is over I need to start baking again, maybe that will give me something to eat.  Maybe I can take some pictures along the way and do write ups for the other Blog about how to bake stuff too.  That is probably a pretty good idea.  Eventually I want to cover a wide variety of different types of subjects over there, and I think baking is a good one to add to the mix.  

For now I think I am going to quit typing and get ready for bed.  Tomorrow is another day, and now that I have a whole host of new projects to work on for the next few days I am looking forward to getting to work on them.  I will ramble at you all next time.  Until then, Namaste.
