BEFORE--Here were the drawings they sent me of what they wanted. Baseball stitch, ties, and waterfall skirt to change up the whole look.
I pieced the inside back to create the X back they wanted and opened up the seam and stitched on both sides.
I've been mulling over different goals for the year, and haven't really nailed any down specifically. My overall thoughts were just trying to figure out what my dream is. Everyone has a different dream, half the battle is figuring out what your's is. It's kind of my new saying-- you know when your house is trashed, and the kids are fighting..."Living the dream, baby...living the dream!"
Lots of times, it's just making things happen and writing them down on your to do list. What gets you excited? Is there something new you want to learn? What things do you want to make happen this year??
My Ultimate dream--have 5 BYU housing condos that are paid for which create passive income ($42,000/yr after expenses), so I don't have to work as hard, and can take more trips. We bought our first BYU condo last February and are on a 3 year plan to pay it off. Once it's paid for it'll be an income stream. Then I'd just have to do that 4 more times. Which sounds a bit exhausting to me right now--so maybe 3 BYU condos?? I guess just take it one condo at a time.
One bucket list thing I put on my to do list for this year is to hit up the longest yardsale on Hwy 127 from Alabama to Michigan. Aug 4-7!
