I have not put in a stitch in 2 days. Why? Mostly, because we've been sparring in karate which WIPES ME OUT!! So, after work, then karate, a trip to the pool to cool off, a short stint of blackberry picking in the yard for dessert, and then dinner and bedtime with the kids, I've got nothing left. This weekend, however, I am determined to not only finish the top of the baby quilt, but also finish hand quilting a third block in the Pick and Choose quilt and fire up the sewing machine to piece at least 1 block of something, anything!

I'm going to KICK my inertia to the curb!

(this is me kicking during Kama Kata at my Advanced pre-Black Belt test last month. I didn't know I could kick that high...)

Wow! That's an amazing kick! Maybe the Rockettes will be calling you! :) Being a black belt is so awesome and such a great example for your boys. It's ok to have a bit of inerita every now and then--every working mother of young kids deserves it.

Fantastic!! Great kick!!

Have fun catching up on some sewing this weekend!

I feel exactly the same way Erin . However since I dont do karate - I'll probably veg out this weekend and get nothing done!

Good luck with your crafting. I have complete faith that you'll kick that inertia to the kerb.

Just reading your schedule wears me out! I'm glad I'm your friend - I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that kick. I hope you get to relax a little this weekend and get the sewing in you have planned.

Man I can not wait to get back to karate when my foot heals. That's a great looking kick.

Just don't kick the quilting habit!
