A run for the money

This particular new quilt [sigh]....

Yes, I said "new". Don't roll your eyes in my direction!

This time, it's a literal 'run for the money.' A dash from start to completion (and entry) for the finish line.

Yes, despite my constant nagging at myself to finish my UFOs, I am going to begin yet another project - with an eye on a prize!

Trouble is that I am coming upon this particular contest late (much too late, in fact), and had made up my mind about two weeks ago that I wasn't going to enter it after all because the deadline is just too tight.

I reasoned why do that to myself? And I was alright with that decision; perfectly fine. Content. Relaxed. Busily occupied with other activities and plans.

Then, three or four days ago, I thought to myself you can do this.... you can do it!

So, after wasting essentially two weeks worth of prime planning, cutting, sewing and quilting time (of an already ridiculously-too-tight-deadline), I am jumping in with both feet.

I know. I know - I'm an idiot!

But this overwhelming feeling woke me from a sound sleep early Monday morning and wouldn't let me go. Visions and plans were alive in my subconscious....and it was a done deal, as they say.

So, wish me well, and keep your fingers crossed. Think happy, creative, forward-moving thoughts, and let's see what kind of winning entry I can create. ;)

Ha ha ha haaaaa!

Yeah, I know, right?

Seriously, THANKS! (if you're real, and not a spammybot). Have a good one! :)

If you're a spammybot, I'm keeping the compliment anyway. ;)
