JUST AN UPDATE.....
(unrelated quilt pic!)
A couple of things today:
I am plodding and I do mean PLODDING along at getting the afore quilt mentioned.
IT IS TAKING FOREVAH!!!!!!
I thought I would be brilliant(!) on Monday and went down to my local library. I finally got a library card(i've only been here 7 years ok??) and proceeded to check out some audio books and perused the shelves looking for written works on creativity.
I've heard other quilters and artists enjoy the audio because it gives their brain something to do while their hands are busy. ( I really NEED something to keep me focused once the design decisions are made)This would also keep me from checking the internet cause I'm trying to feed my brain cell. ( I only got 1 but its HUNGRY!!!)
I plowed through all 3 of the audio books ( on cassette TAPES yall)the selection wasn't huge at the library....but I did get something out of each one.
Just recently I joined Audible..they had a special intro deal for 3 months and I was perusing my first free choice. Then I remembered I had a set of cassettes by Dr Phil....somewhere.....I found them and busteed them out.I had never listened to them! Wow! 5 90 minute tapes..I was excited to be able to keep improving my brain cell whilst I plodded along.
Maybe I was at my improvement capacity for 1 brain cell,( having just finished a self -development marathon!!)but by the time I got to # 3 tape I couldn't handle it anymore. What was wierd was Dr. Phil KNEW HE WAS BEING OVERBEARING because he mentioned,sounding harsh; not being negative, just a REALIST.
Like he knew at this point people were going to shut him off. Which is exactly what I did. I do like Dr.Phil....especially his abrupt, no nonsense let's get to the point RIGHT NOW approach.....but not for extended periods of time.
I've managed to stop the swelling and bleeding from the audible brow beating! Thanks doc!
and for something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT..............
MY blog is rapidly approaching the devils number of hits. What puzzles me is the HUGE AMOUT OF LURKERS and so very few posters. I for one am a poster especially when there are few comments.I've almost ALWAYS got SOMETHING TO SAY.( I know blahblahblah) I's just nice to know someone OUT THERE is willing to COMMUNICATE.
SO I'm urging all y'all to OPEN UP YER CAKE HOLES AND SAY SOMETHING !!
lEAVE ME A COMMENT!! I DOUBLE DOG DARE YA!!
Tell me your favorite audio book.....or chip dip!!!
Ask me the difference between a QUILT and a BLANKET!!
It matters not!! What is important is that we are creating DIALOG...
Help me out a little here. I know that you can!
