Inspired by President Uchtdorf's most recent general conference talk (which is all about slowing down in periods of high stress and busyness and focusing on what matters most), along with "The Water Secret" (by Dr. Howard Murad which is a book I highly highly recommend), I decided to create for myself some regular down time each night before bed.  It's a time to unwind and reflect upon the day by jotting down a few things in one of my 8 journals.  I spent one day last week mod podging beautiful scrapbook paper on the outsides of plain composition notebooks.

Here is what they started out looking like:

Cuddling Quilt {Episode 3}

I'm making progress...I planned on little by little...but it has turned into huge burst by huge burst with lots of time inbetween. :)

The top of my first quilt is finished with only the quilting and binding left.
I just finished the rows of the second one today and have only the small strips and the edge left until it's finished as well.

I didn't think I would have them all finished, but with lots of prayers and a hefty dose of faith, I'm piecing them together!! :)
