Relax Already!

Most of the time I feel like I need to be working on a project.  I was realizing that even sitting to feed Cora her bottle I felt I needed to be "doing" something. Today, I sat and gazed out the window watching the snow start to fall and the birds at the bird feeder.

Every time I looked away from her she would bounce with her legs and when I looked down at her she would smile with the bottle still in her mouth, as if to say "Hey, Grandma, look at me."  So cute!!

She is the cutest thing!!

 Even sitting down to read a book feels somehow lazy. I am not creating something...  I don't take much time to plan, my day, or a meal or my business. Even taking the time to write a blog post, or visit and comment on my favorite blogs seems like a misuse of my time.  What is wrong with me!

I seriously think I need to relax!!

Here is an example of not taking the time to plan...I am participating in a Fat Quarter Swap and Challenge over at Ninth Street Notions.  I got my pack of 5 fat quarters earlier in the week and thought I would make a baby gift set.  The set would consist of 2 burp cloths, a paci clip, and a bib clip, and then a small bag (LL Bean style), to put it all in.

oh kind of over exposed but you get the picture

The burp cloths and clips were easy I have done them a few times, but the bag I had not made in a long time.  I was planning on using fusible fleece to give it body, but was so focused on getting the handles and pocket and bag bottom right that I forgot all about the it is an add on...

I am not finished yet, and will post the whole package when I do finish, but first I need to relax a bit!!

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, PEACE, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law."  Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV)

Wishing you PEACE today!!
