Note To Self

I decided I needed to write a Note To Self...as we are winding down with less than 12 days till we are home again...granted for only a short while...but, still our feet will hit the soil of Sisters.  A Note To Self is not only a reminder about what worked, didn't work...what I should have brought...what I didn't really need to bring...a kind of check list about quilting on the road.

Next time...I need a better iron.
                 a 6 inch square ruler
                 a seam ripper
                 

What I don't need to bring is cross stitch...seems at least on this trip to be on the back burner...which then means I didn't need my magnifying lamp.  I am really glad I brought my box of stitching thread.

I am working on this quilt and have all the blocks stitched but the pattern calls for them all to be cut down to a 4 1/2 square...dang...I wish I had brought that  6 inch square ruler.  Oh well,  it'll get done and I am learning patience.


The number one Note To Self...don't be hard on yourself about not meeting the goals...life is about savoring the journey and sometimes that means being flexible.  Keep your heart open...there are some awesome people you will meet along the way.
