    Quilt Retreat just for Me!

    The virtual quilt retreat a couple of weeks ago spurred me to spend a whole day sewing. I usually feel guilty if I don't get some other things done but not that day. So tomorrow I have declared it "IrishNY Personal Quilt Retreat Day" in the hopes I will ignore all the other things that need to be done and sew!

    I'll let you know how it goes.

    I desperately need a personal retreat day in order to work on some commissions that have been on hold during this power outage of the past whole week. Today i could have sewn, I suppose, but my arms were so achy when I woke this morning -- from a day of emptying, rinsing, scouring, cloroxing, rinsing again, the refrigerator which withstood 7 days without electricity. Gadzooks, what a task! The kitchen is torn apart due to the effort -- water all over the floor, shelving and drawers of fridge out on the counters, rags/paper towels piled on the floor, food to return to fridge out on the counters (which I brought home from Mother's), all the cleaning products sitting around waiting to finish the job -- I can hardly stand to go in there, but I felt so rotten most of the day.

    Now, when I could have had tomorrow to sew, but as I took today off to recover, I'll have to work on continuing to pull the house together instead. I'm disciplining myself to clean first, before I sew. And it feels like punishment. But I HATE to CLEAN. pout.

    I envy you!

    Jan in VA you need to give yourself rewards. May I suggest half an hour serious cleaning = nice cup of tea or coffee + one hour sewing.

    Update -
    I have a quick top almost put together so far, except for borders. I don't have the border fabric yet so that part will not be done today. And I've made about a million (ok, just feels like a million) HSTs for a quilt for my son, which was my real goal for today. Back to work but pictures later.

    Jan,
    That's why I needed to declare a Quilt Retreat day for myself. There is always something else to do and I am of the "chores first, then sewing" group that means I never get to sewing. Not today! :-)

    It does all work out in the end, and we have to do what is in front of us first I suppose! Now that the fridge is cleaned, you will feel better when you do sew.
