April TIFC - Day Three






I have not spend enough time this month on the Take it Further Challenge and the month is drawing to a close. Looks like I'll be working on this in May. I had thought I'd make more progress than I did today but it was slow going and I'm not happy with the result. My plan was to paper piece the tessellating arrows and then appliqué them on to a whole cloth background. I may still try this but not with what I did today. After a few hours I had made progress but I was disappointed with the quality of my workmanship. I guess I'll was just call this a sample.

Living consciously...

Life has got to be lived - that's all there is to it. - Eleanor Roosevelt

The practice today was to figure out how many days you have left as a motivation to prioritize what's important and start living the way you want.

I've played this game before and my only objection is that Hendricks uses 25,000 days as the average American life span. With the help of this date calculator, that would mean I only have 4,542 days to go... Nope! I'm going for more! A little over 16 thousand days would just about get me to the young at heart age of 100 so, I rather shoot for that and if I fall short, oh well.

I like this idea also. I will be working on mine in May too, I think. I do have an idea, inspired by some of the classical quotations you mentioned.

I applaud your effort on the April TIF. I have abandoned the challenge, just too many other projects calling for attention. I'll take those 16,000 days and still not complete all the projects running around in my head!

I like the arrows, don't give up on this one.
