On the door of the tiny employees' bathroom located in the back of the file room of my office is a poster. The poster has a captive audience if you know what I mean! LOL. The poster has all kinds of little quotes. Its been there for years and I've about got them all memorized. This week this one jumped out at me: "DON'T LET GRASS GROW AROUND YOUR DREAMS".
I've been dwelling on this quote all week. As you know from the name of my blog, I have homemaking dreams. I really struggle with this because I have so many ideas for being a great homemaker. Things like sewing,cooking,decorating the house, yard work, gardening, cleaning, laundry, etc., get my leftover time.
How do I keep the grass from growing around my dreams? NEVER GIVE UP!
I want you to know that I have fallen short of my goals or failed completely so many times. But, I am determined to get back up and try again and again.
This week I have listed on my side bar all the things I want to get done in the kitchen zone this week. I planned to do a little each day and finish up Saturday. I HAVEN'T DONE ONE SINGLE THING ON THE LIST! But I am still determined to work on this list. I won't give up!
Yesterday before work and after work I started on a special order pocketbook. The outside panels were to be quilted. I finished the quilting part last night, but there are so many puckers there's no way I can sell a bag made from them. I have to start all over. I lay awake last night thinking of how I could start over and avoid those puckers. I won't give up!
I have had some recent success however! I made fabric grocery bags for the Etsy shop which sold very quickly and I received great feedback from the buyer. I made more and have great ideas for more items to sell! I found instructions online this morning to make clothes pins bags and have my own design in my head as we speak!
I need to relax and keep on going. I can only do so much, the rest is in God's hands! I trust HIM with my dreams. Meanwhile, I'll keep working at these things and keep going!
