Sunday morning.
The weather is overcast and cool - perfect for my sewing mission.
I have been up for a while, drinking tea, listening to the radio and starting on the sewing.

In the early morning hours I am often happy with my before bed routine of clearing my sewing table. It is a surviving habit from working in an accounting office for many years.
Like I before put my papers and pens away I now put away the scissors, cutters, spools and pencils away.
It is good to let a de-cluttered sewing table greet me in the morning. It is not without thing on it - not at all - but not chaos and no empty cups from yesterday.

Today's sewing mission is to do as much as possible on the Starboat quilt top.

I am in quote mode - here goes:

"Try a thing you haven't done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. and a third time, to figure out whether you like it or not."
- Virgil Thompson,

My conclusion: Now I have worked on the Starboat blocks three times and I like it :-)

"Persistence is what makes the impossible possible, the possible likely, and the likely definite."
- Robert Half, Executive

My conclusion: My persistence level is high today - I will see some results on this quilt before I know it :-)


  1. Good for you! I like your quote. I'm eager to see the picture of the finished top, as I can't picture how these blocks are going together. I'm sure it will be wonderful.

  2. Go, Hanne! Will be interested to hear what you get done today. Karen

  3. Star boat or bust, right? Keep plugging! I see you are on deadline for this one. That always lights a fire under me--give me too long and I'll go off another tangent.
