WIP Wednesday – Oh, Hello There

It’s at this point in my life I really need an narrator of sorts to do a voiceover like, “When last we saw Pam, she was stressed out.” Then pan video to me sitting in my living room still sort of stressed out. The good news is, however, the end is rather in sight (new job officially starts next Wednesday) and I just need to google some pictures of contrails to solve my latest quilting dilemma and then everything will be FINE. Yes. That’s what I’m telling myself.

It’ll be fine, right?

Of course it will. Never mind that my brain is already circling around what to make for Thanksgiving (in a month) and the time table to get everything in the oven in order to eat at noon, and whether the turkey I haven’t even bought yet will be defrosted in time. Really, it’ll be fine.

In the mean time, I had a quilting retreat last weekend and finished 3 1/2 quilt tops! Add that to three I already had done, and I have a bona fide pile-up. Oh boy.

So this post is a catch up for stash reporting and WIP-ing, so really I’ve got the de-stash yardage and some pillowcases

  • Used this past random amount of time: 17 yards
    • 15 yd destashed
    • 2 yd for 2 donation pillowcases
  • Total Used Year to Date: 260.5 yards
  • YTD Used for Charity: 71.5 yards (27% of total used)

  1. It does get stressful this time of year, but things usually work out, and if they don’t, we laugh about it later. Hang in there.

    1. Oh I feel your brain spinout dear! I was (and am) going through the same over thanksgiving – UGH! I ordered a ‘kit’ from Marley Spoon so at least I’ve got a start right??? Right?? Well maybe anyway 😉 I’m with you – It’ll be FINE!

      Take care and hang in!

  2. Congratulations on the new job! Here we can order a complete Thanksgiving dinner delivered to your door Thanksgiving morning.

  3. Take a breath.
    Make a list.
    Take a sick day.

    You are doing great.

    PS You can order an entire Thanksgiving dinner from the grocery store in case of emergency, so no stressing.

  4. IT WILL BE FINE! Just in case you needed to hear that one more 🙂 I’m glad you got to enjoy some retreat time. I was on retreat as well, and it was great to shut off the world and just sew. I hope the new job eases your stress and allows you to enjoy just your sewing time.
