Turn, Turn, Turn

Words-adapted from The Bible, book of Ecclesiastes
Music-Pete Seeger



To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

A time to build up,a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it's not too late

Goals

This is in response to Katie's post today about four goals for the end of the year.  Here are a couple of things I want to accomplish. 

1 - finish my "other pinwheel sampler"
2 - take the CLM exam (scheduled for September 30) - done
3 - lose 10 pounds by Christmas
4 - get serious about my running 3 miles goal.  I want to walk every day for at least 1/2 hour.  Maybe if it's not such a chore, I will actually do it.

I'd also like to spend more time sewing - clothes, quilts, other stuff.  I'd like to spend more time reading.  I'd like to spend less time watching TV.  These are just general wants and not really goals ...

Thursday - finished quilt

The finished baby quilt.  I am really happy with the parts of this quilt but I don't like the way it came together. I like the quilting.  I like the binding - my corners look great. I like the backing.  I didn't get backing that matched the front.  I didn't have enough of the fabric so I had to piece the backing.

You can kind of see the quilting in this picture.
The front turned out great - I think the red binding is okay.  Looking at it now, dark blue binding might have been a better choice.
And the back.  It's okay, just not exactly what I was going for.





It's just a lot of work to not be happy with the way it turned out.  Oh, well, live and learn.
