You Can Quilt! Behinds the Scenes - Prioritizing in PJs
AnneMarie at GenX Quilters is reviewing You Can Quilt! today. I've 'known' AnneMarie forever, but finally got to meet her in person a few weeks ago at Market. It was awesome. Head on over and check out her Mini Lone Star block and see what she has to say about You Can Quilt!. (You can enter the giveaway here.)
|Yes, those are my PJs and Becca is on my lap pawing through the desk drawer and dropping crayons all over the floor.|
For example, I would look in the fridge, realize that we were low on milk and had no fresh fruit or veggies and instead of going shopping I would say, "That's ok, we can have canned beets/pears/applesauce/beans for dinner and I can go shopping later." I knew that between getting kids in the car, driving, shopping, driving, kids, unloading and putting away that I would loose 2 hours of writing or sewing time. Every day I could put it off was time saved. Insane.
