When May rolled around, we found it was Marcia that struggled finding "me" time. While my husband is now better, my son is doing great with his schoolwork and my daughter is doing fantastic, Marcia has had a hard summer/fall. She really has a lot on her plate right now and December looks to be one of the toughest months yet for her. A couple of weeks ago she created a Linky party called, "Minutes for Me" I am so glad that she did because it forces us all to find just a little bit of time each week to do something for ourselves.
One thing that I really like is to get projects finished. I cannot stand starting new projects while others are sitting around. And right now I have more projects sitting around than I've ever had in my life! So this week, I purposely made some minutes for me...and yep, you guessed it, I finished up Mabry Mill. Finally!
For those that don't know, we started this Mabry journey several months ago when I was teaching Foundation Paper Piecing here on the blog. I posted a photo of Mabry Mill and asked if anyone would like to join me in making it. I had several that said yes, but when it got right down to it, only one was able to commit and stick to it. Linda has done a great job, because Mabry is a very hard piece to quilt and she is new to paper piecing!
Here is my finished Mabry Mill. I am going to add a few borders, including some leaves, but you won't see that for awhile because I sent this part home with my daughter Amy to have fun picking all those papers off the back. She actually enjoys it (she's kind of crazy that way).
I am linking this up with Marcia's Minutes for Me.
Thank you Marcia for encouraging me to find time for myself!
And thank you Linda for sticking with it with me!
