The Challenge Met
My ability to participate in some of the activities on the Friends Gather BB is usually pretty limited; however, this weekend looked free and I decided I would join the 24-hour Challenge this month. Starting and finishing a project in 24 hours necessitates that it be small, so I chose the Prairie Schooler freebie I've seen on other stitching blogs. It's a pretty design and great fun to stitch up, and I actually did it in 24 hours!
Of course, I had other things to get done today too. The sun was shining again today, so I continued with some of that spring cleaning. Today I cleared out a part of my closet and actually cleaned up the huge dust bunnies that had reproduced on the closet floor! Then I had some things I needed to store but not much room in my storage room. But first I did a little stitching, then I went downstairs and did some rearranging and throwing out. Then I stitched some more. Then I did laundry . . . and so it went until I finished my stitching. As we all know, the cleaning, sorting, organizing never really gets finished. This stitch 'n work tactic should be used more often and perhaps I'd accomplish more all round! And it helps if the sun is shining.
