UFO Busting #26
This will probably be one of the very few not upbeat posts you will find on my blog ever, so let me apologize first. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you have to re-evaluate things, whether you want to or not. That's me right now today. Absolutely nothing quilting related happened this week, unless you count straightening up the sewing space and filing away fabrics.
I did, however, start to work on a very important UFO, one that will remain a UFO until the day I die and that is me. I am probably my most neglected UFO. We will always be our most important UFO and we can't forget that. I had forgotten that. We don't realize how we feel about ourselves can actually bleed off onto other people and they may not perceive/interpret things as you do. There are no magic crystal balls into other people. So this week, I shook off the cobwebs, picked up my boot straps and started doing just that.
It's hard to admit that you are unhappy with your body. It's easy to have confidence sitting here at this computer...you can't see me. There's nothing wrong with me per se, I look just fine. Maybe I could say I could be healthier. So this week, I have focused solely on what I've put into my body and started cleaning the spaces around me to remove the clutter. I have to say, I feel slightly better. It will be a process and a challenging one at that, but in the end it will be worth it.
After a week of cutting the carbs to pretty much zero and focusing on good fats and protein, I can start to feel and see a difference. Don't get me wrong, I'd probably wrestle you to the ground right now for a Reese Cup, but I'm choosing not to. I will however give you sad eyes while you eat it and don't be alarmed if I try to sniff it or possibly lick it. I'm told the sugar withdrawal will pass.
I hope to return to my upbeat self soon, but for now, this is where I'm at, and that is okay. We can't be Suzie Sunshine 24/7. However, there are things to look forward to. Tomorrow I will release the next set of piecing instructions for the Fireburst Mystery QAL. I can't wait to see the progress you guys are making!
So let's take a look at what you guys were up to last week. Last week Wendy at Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilty Life had a project finish.
She calls this one Sunshine and Shadows. With all rain around where I live seeing this lovely burst of yellow sun shine was a wonderful welcome.
I want to give a huge pat on the back to Janice at Color, Creating and Quilting. She is determined to hone in on her free motion quilting skills.
So what have you been up to this week. I hope there was more quilting in your life than mine. Link up below and tell us all about it.
