This won't take long, I say, as I begin to applique. Wrong! It will take long, much longer than I think it will. I must be the world's slowest appliquer or I over-estimate my speed.
I anticipated that each lavender center would take about 20 minutes to stitch. They measure about 3" across.
I began appliqueing this tree at the beginning of our 3½-hour ride to visit our daughter and her family.
We arrived and I still had more tree to applique!
I do this with other things, too. It will take me 20 minutes to get to that appointment and I find I'm 5 minutes late. I can dust that room in half and hour, and 45 minutes later I'm still not finished. So often I under-estimate how long things will take. I must plan more time for everything -- applique, reading, travelling, even falling asleep at night!
Do you underestimate the time it takes to do things or are you speedy and finish sooner than you anticipated?
Okay, to be honest, I wrote this post because someone told me that blogger is now forwarding comments to email again and I wanted to see if it's true for me, too. Of course, that means someone will have to leave a comment on this post! Please do, and thank you.
