Still counting

Three things to be happy about:
(1) an "ah-hah!" moment
(2) playing the dozens
(3) red popsicles

I'm still cutting, sewing and counting pieces to finish off my Scrap Crystals quilt - I'll have enough any day now, I just know it!

Meanwhile I trimmed and de-papered more of the sashing strips; I don't have too many more of the pages to make, they go so fast!

Do you find yourself counting things in the back of your mind?

Number of stair steps to the second floor - 15.

From the sidewalk to my porch - 5 steps, flat space, 5 steps.

When I was working I got up every morning at 4:20 in order to catch the 5:18 metro.  One trick I used to control my shower time was count to 100.  Even now when I shower, I find myself counting to 100!

Have a great Thursday, count something today - sew forth and sew on!


  1. I find that interesting. The only thing I am sure to count is my stairs ever since I fell down them.

  2. That is so funny. I never did the counting thing before, but lately as I get older and stiffer, I do count stairs and walking steps. Weird.

  3. I find myself counting things all the time ... looking for the shortest route to the station or which station is nearest the school ... the trouble us, when I get to ten, I run out of fingers and tend to get messed up.
