B.Potter progress



wow! Amazing what can be done when a goal is set in motion!!!! I looked at my B.Potter piece earlier this month & decided that I CAN finish it by the end of the year. At that point, I had 12 motifs left to do. I told myself that if I did 2 per month, with the other 2 spread over the 5 months, it could be done. So....I set myself on the mission. I decided to keep working on it for more of the month of July. I now only have 8 left to do, if I just counted correctly. That is very do-able, even with the busy-ness of life!!!
I am working on plans right now, to have the boys here next week!!!!!! Mommy had asked earlier in the week & DH & I talked & thought if she could meet us half way, we could get them & then be here! So.....the plans are starting!!!
School starts here in less than 3 weeks & that means back to babysitting. I will only have one family this year, so I will not be quite as busy with that. I am contemplating getting an outside the home job, for the first time in nearly 30 years! I have been a stay at home mom all this time!
Well, have a great day! I have a house to clean! Thanks for stopping by & thanks even more for the kind comments...they always make my day!
