Relief, finally

These past 2 weeks I’ve been overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done. Deadlines were looming! How did I finally get Relief? I asked for help! Her name is Cheri. She is wonderful! She has been coming over to help me get caught up and I’m almost there.

She is going to continue helping me. 💙

Two nights ago I had a small project to finish.  I had to prepare a mug rug pattern that would be available for free.  A mug rug is about 6 to 7 inches by 9 inches. Very simple project. That’s what you think! After I spent 2 hours to make the mug rug, I then had to write the pattern. Except, I was too tired.

I go to bed that night thinking, ok I just have to write a 1 page pattern and it’s done…..well this gal could not get her stuff together in the morning. I just could not think. I spent 3 hours trying to write, take pictures, make step outs…. (step outs are the extra pieces to demonstrate how the piece goes together).  Cheri arrived while I was eating breakfast. I think my whole issue was I was hungry! The next 2 1/2 hours were spent preparing the pattern for my website. Cropping pictures, writing the steps, preparing the lighting for Facebook live with Annie’s Publishing (Annie’s Craft Store).

All of that took 6 hours!! 6 hours, so that I could do a less than 20 minute live appearance and a free pattern for the public.

Using pretty embroidery thread for my applique and quilting stitching makes this little Mug Rug shine

Pattern is only FREE for a short time.

Did you have any idea it took that much time? Cheri and I got lunch after the “live” video was completed and back to work in the next project! We stopped at 6pm, I still have 20 seams to sew and my newest pattern goes on my website.

 

Happy quilting Everyone! I feel fantastic! Finally!

  1. We all need great friends and quilting buddies. Overwhelmed is the perfect time for one of those friends to step up and it sounds like Cheri sure did! Good on you Cheri! Now Nancy finish up those seams and those projects and take some time for you to re-charge the batteries!

  2. Thankfully all I have to do is proofread! We have been having so much fun my house was almost taken over by munching messy muggles! Spending the day cleaning here…yuck! Any volunteers???
