What would I do with an extra hour a day? I think that depends on the time of year and what I am currently working on.
Right now I am working on gifts. I should finish up the pillow the kids and I are stitching for my mom for Mother’s Day tomorrow. I traced mine and the kids’ hands and we’re stitching the outline onto a pillow for her along with the words “We Love You”. On the other side of the pillow is a little sketched outline of a house and the words “There’s no place like home…except Meemaw’s” I could have had this project done in a day on my own but since seven year old wants to help I’m teaching him.
Once that pillow is done I’ll go back to helping Jess with the springtime lap quilt we’re stitching. Then I have about eight other quilt projects that I am hoping to have done before Christmas. It probably won’t happen but we’ll see. I am currently obsessed with redwork quilts. I think they’re absolutely beautiful.
Once I got caught all up on those projects I would use the extra hour to write. I have a lot of projects that are in the works but am writing them all by hand so I could use that extra hour since writing is going slow.
However with the warmer months arriving I May decide to use that extra hour earlier in the day and enjoy a walk along the river with my kids.
How would you spend an extra hour?
