Things are buzzing at the beehive!

Progress at the Beehive
95 hours, 28 minutes
Last update April 17, 2013
I had a plan, way back, to sandwich all my quilts so they would be ready for hand quilting. It was a good plan and I did sandwich all but a few, but getting them quilted just didn't happen.
Feeling overwhelmed it was time to do something about it. So, I set up a hand quilting schedule with a goal of 1-2 hours a night, 5 nights a week and I must say, how good it feels! When gardening season arrives my time spent at the Beehive will be greatly reduced. I am an evening gardener and rarely make it inside before dark.
All of us, from time to time, need a plunge into freedom and novelty, after which routine and discipline will seem delightful by contrast. ~André Maurois
There are definitely benefits to routine and something I plan to revisit in 2013. Forgotten are so many projects, lost in the excitement of starting something new. But, as my focus returns to the forgotten, the excitement that once was does to.
The New Year will also be a more mindful one. Blogging makes it too easy to become unmindful and in turn one fails to give proper attention to what really matters, and that is the quilting.
Even though my journey is taking a big step backwards, new projects will still be part of the New Year, but in a more mindful way. Considered a treat for progress made and once started it must be seen to finish.
Jumping ahead to the day my hand quilting is caught up and my forgotten projects are done, maybe I will be wiser, with only a couple of projects on the go, at any given time.
Until next time.....happy quilting!
