I've been working like crazy on this quilt trying to get it done on time. I'm going to be late. There is always something going on that seems to prevent me from getting to it and there are times I just need a break from it.
I've been machine quilting it and I'm about half-way done. I need to finish 8 blocks and the outer poinsettia border. It really is lovely.
Once I get the binding on, I'll post some pictures. I know I'll be done next week, but the pictures may not get posted. I still have Christmas cards to make.
Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
