You would have thought my husband and some of my friends had read Friday's post about Balance.  The concept kept coming up all weekend.  I won't go into all the details, but let's just say my house is now clean, and I have several coffee and lunch dates scheduled with friends this week as well as girls' night out Friday for the highly anticipated release of New Moon!!!!!

I guess I needed the lecture and guilt trip.  So, even though I didn't get to sew much this weekend, look what I found while cleaning my office.  It's like when you find money in the dryer, but way better!!!  I forgot that I had all these charm packs.

I had wanted to finish the waverunner quilt this weekend, but the picture above is all I accomplished...three lousy strips sewn and ironed.  Note to self:  It's all about balance...remember.

I did work some on my color wheel embroidery project.  This is what I did on the large hoop.  I have to say this is one of the funnest projects I've worked on in a long time!!!!  No deadline.  I can just sit and stitch whatever comes to mind in whichever direction I feel like stitching (as long as it is the correct color).  I did this while watching football.  I had my HEN printouts and learned new stitches along the way.  Try it!!

Have an amazing day!!


  1. Love the colors of your waverunner quilt and how your color wheel is turning out! I agree about balance. Hobbies should not become like work or they wouldn't be pleasurable!

  2. Yay!!!! So nice that God rewarded your quest for balance with those Charm packs. Sooooo like Him!! Enjoying the wave runner. You may convince me yet to start one of those color wheels!! After the New Year of course!!!


  3. I hate cleaning but love the feel right after lol. I really have to start one of those colour wheels, I just finished a penny mat, and really enjoyed having something to stitch during football.

  4. Wow on the treasure trove you found.

    The wave runner still scares me!

    The color wheel is coming along swimmingly...

    for a college bound son, you've gotten a lot done! lol Oh...there's just not enough hours in the day is there? So much to do this week and next as we gear up for Thanksgiving dinner here....

    Thanks for sharing your theme weekend and all that you've gotten done!

  5. Balance...I need balance...but I need to catch up too...I've been whining about where September and October went...and now November is half over!
