Welcome to the weekly hand stitching link up! We are an international gathering of folks who like to be creative with our hand stitching.

Is it terrible to admit that I'm not a very goal driven person? I don't keep a life planner, set resolutions, maintain daily or weekly goal lists, and have no idea most of the time where my life is headed! I have become a "live in the moment according to my values" kind of person and just follow whatever my heart tells me most of the time.
I've been thinking a lot about this after reading the thought provoking post on Diary of a Quilter. It was terrific food for thought and I recommend a read and reflection of how it fits for you. I do like suggestion #2, I am terrible at #5, and would love to focus on #10 all the time!
Oh and I'm 99% sure there will never be a day when I use a planner for quilting projects!

That's my goal. That's all I'm doing.
Every few years I actually finish a hand made quilt and I do cherish those.
Today I hope to finish the appliqué on this star for the Blockheads II project which won't take too long. You can see all the lines it took to get a star shape that I liked!
Hopefully those lines will disappear!
Then I was planning to do some piecing on my 1st block for the Hand Pieced Quilt Along, but that was so quick and fun that I finished it already. Did you see my block here? Are you joining in?
So maybe today I'll prep another appliqué block since the star in a circle has been enjoyable. I am trying to resist starting the Hospital Sketches BOM by Barbara Brackman, but since I had a severe case of Startitis and started 3 new projects already this week, perhaps I ought to try to reign it in!!
