I do hate to wait. It drives me crazy. This is a failing of mine but I just can't help it. So, I'm joining AmandaJean's 1st quilt along after it is all over and she's half way into her 2nd quilt along. The really great part about quilting "behind" is that I don't have to wait. All the blocks are laid out and so I can zip through them. I tend to focus in on one project at a time and let all else go to H-E-double toothpicks. I love doing this with books, too. Nolan and I only started reading Harry Potter right before the last book was due to be released. We spent a few months reading books 1-6 and then only had about a month to wait for book 7. I did it with the Lord of the Rings movies. I didn't watch a single one until they were all out on DVD. Mike and I rented them all at once and spent a glorious week watching them all. We watched the extended versions as well so we took about two days to finish each DVD. It was amazing. I didn't have to wait.I'm learning to be patient but it isn't easy. I've been enjoying our surroundings since our move. There are so many birds (I saw the momma cardinal today. Looks just like the daddy only smaller and not red.) I ADORE the squirrels and the bunnies. It slows me down to spend time watching. This is what greeted me as I walked downstairs (our stairs are directly in front of our front door).Have a great day today. We are having a heat wave which the newspaper defined for this region as three or more days of 90+ degree heat. Stay cool. We're off to the pool.
