Today has been a really interesting day. This morning I woke up early and got back to my regular yoga class after missing it for nearly 3 months.
I realized while I was out of town that my usual mindset of "gotta get to work early, gotta get my work done!" is really rather silly. It's this mindset that has made me miss yoga and many other morning events because I feel so much pressure to get downstairs and online.
The fact is, I will always be busy! Rather than let it stress me out and turn me into a nasty monster, I really just need to chill out and enjoy the ride.
So today after yoga, I treated myself to a massage with my favorite massage therapist and then came home and took a nap! Josh took care of all the orders from the shop so I could take the day off.
And of course with a much more relaxed and chill attitude, I sat down at my machine and in a blink of the eye I'd stitched through all the remaining samples needed for the book!
While the day hasn't been spent working on the million other things on my "to-do" list, finishing these squares is a huge step to finishing From Daisy to Paisley, the beginner filler photo book.
Now all that's left to do is edit the photos, place them in the book, and write the "how to stitch" descriptions.
Wrapping up this first mini book feels really good. Almost as good as finishing the DVD! I just received an email from my DVD guy and tomorrow morning we'll meet up to get the master disc and files!
It will still take some time to get the master disc duplicated, but I'm finally feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. These projects have been in process since June so I'm definitely ready to finish them up and move on to something new!
So that's it for this What's Leah Working on Wednesday. While I may not have accomplished a whole lot today, I feel great and that's what really counts!
Let's go quilt!
