Finished projects


Life can be so busy and we can start so many things which we never finish. I guess this is normal for crafters to have many projects on the go at once. Since I started my art class I have learned that it isn't the finished item that is important but what we learn along the way. This is much like our lives, not one of us are striving to reach the end of our lives even if we are content in knowing that we are heading for heaven to live eternally without all the flaws this world brings. It is the living out of our lives that is important. However when we do complete a project with it comes satisfaction with our achievement. Tonight as we hung my Tiny Town Quilt I had that sense of satisfaction but also a little sadness that it was complete.The Thursday girls were given an interesting task this week with a christmassy theme. It appeared complicated at first but I really enjoyed drawing and it only got really scary when I started with the colour pencils, not that I was likely to get anywhere near finished!! Our shower was also finished this week and by friday I had managed to eliminate most of the dust that had came with the renovation.



Then the rest of the week was for fun things. We had friends round for dinner on Friday evening and then Saturday was a me day with no J or Smudge. Julie and I browsed St George's market where I always said I would go and never did. It was like a game guessing what all the exotic fruits and veg where and browsing all the crafts, buying none because we could make them ourselves (but never will get round to it!!!) A chat with Danielle, one of the Thursday girls on her stall and as usual I was amazed by her wonderful work. After a lovely lunch we went to the Opera House and had a laugh with Legally Blonde. We packed so much in the day we took a while becoming accustomed to the light when leaving because although at a matinee I tend to forget the time and expect it to be dark on leaving. I had also purchased 12 tickets for our girlie night back at the Opera house in November to see Calendar Girls. Who knows I may even have another visit before than. This evening I spent time online with Kathy from Cape Cod who is presently in Edinburgh continuing with our Bible study on Living Victoriously in Difficult Times.Tomorrow I have the inlaws and then back to work in the evening. I really do enjoy living this life.
