As I was planning my mid-winter trip I worried that might fall behind on my Star-A-Day project. So I got organized. For the first 11 days of Jan I traced two stars a day – one to cut and sew that day and one for the road. I dated them, and packed them in a baggie with the plan that I would cut out and stitch one a day. Easy peasy, right?
Before I report my trip stats I want to remind my readers that my goal is actually 7 stars a week. In which case, whew! I made it. Admittedly, I fell behind early in my trip and was behind by three stars by the time I left Philly.
Once settled in daughter Sarah’s apartment in Florida I had a chance to catch my breath, nurse my shin splints (sister Dora has long legs and I had to race to keep up with her in Philly), and get caught up on stars.
By the time I came home my baggie was empty and my pile of completed stars was 11 deep.
